I called on the king in the afternoon, and found the pages had already issued plantains for my men and pombe for myself.
These visitors had been drinking freely of pombe to keep up their courage.
O yes, they were all drunk together; men were bringing in pombe all day.
The king was evidently not pleased for no pombe came to-day.
Ask this tallest one why will he not take this cup of pombe from the hand of Ferodia, chief of the Watuta warriors.
The whole was washed down with huge draughts of pombe, a sort of beer, with slightly intoxicating properties.
Lying hid in the bush, they arranged with friendly natives to supply the guard with "pombe" the potent native drink.
He gave abundance of food, pombe, and bananas; the country being extremely fertile.
Two or three huge pots of pombe failed to satisfy the raging thirst which the vigorous exercise they were engaged in, created.
He sent me a goat, flour, and pombe, and next day we returned to Hara.
