How I Carried the Message to Garcia (Classic Reprint)

Andrew Summers Rowan

Excerpt from How I Carried the Message to Garcia Q Following came introductions. From an adjoining room came a tall, wiry, determined-looking man, with a fierce moustache, one of his hands minus a thumb a man to tie to in an emergency, to trust at any time. His eyes were honest, loyal eyes that mirrored a noble soul. He was a Peninsula Spaniard who had gone to Cuba, at Santiago had quarreled with the rule of Old Spain, hence the missing thumb and exile. He was Ger vacio Sabio and he was charged with seeing that I was guided to General Garcia for the delivery of my mes sage. The others were the men employed to get me out of Jamaica - seven miles remaining to be traveled with one exception, one man was to be my assistente, or orderly. Q Following a rest of an hour we proceeded. Half an hours travel from the hut we were again halted by whistle signals. We alighted and entered a cane field through which we tramped in silence for about a mile until we came to a cocoanut grove bordering a play thing of a bay.
