Plate XXIII. Bringing in Game, Fish and other Provisions

Plate XXIII. Bringing in Game, Fish and other Provisions

At a set time every year they gather in all sorts of wild animals, fish, and even crocodiles; these are then put in baskets, and loaded upon a sufficient number of the curly  haired hermaphrodites above mentioned, who carry them on their shoulders to the store house. This supply, however, they do not resort to unless in case of the last necessity. In such event, in order to preclude any dissension, full notice is given to all interested; for they live in the utmost harmony among themselves. The chief, however, is at liberty to take whatever of this supply he may choose.
