The author is drugged and robbed in an opium den in Saigon, the capital of French Cochin-China, makes his way up the %1ekong into the interior, gets through Cambodia by sampan, and then achieves a remarkable journey across country to Bangkok with one pony and one dubious guide. His lack of money makes the whole journey a problem in pluck and resource, for the gorgeous East is without mercy to one who can not afford to hold it in fee.
