Old Reliable in Africa

Old Reliable in Africa  (1918) 
by Harris Dickson
The adventures of "Old Reliable," who is taking his master, Colonel Spotwoode the planter, to Sudan (Egypt): to teach the local planters the practical aspects of cotton planting. Or so Old Reliable believes.

"You? Go to Africa?"

"Sure, why not? I've always wanted to see the negro at home—had a curiosity to know if he's like our negro."

"Heavens, Colonel, that's a mighty long trip."

"Yes, I know; but there'll be several British officers at the Concession. Of course, I'll take Zack along, to shave me and look after my baggage, so I won't get lonesome."

Dr. Paulding glanced at Old Reliable, "No, Colonel, you won't get lonesome—not if you have Zack."
