Some boxes of biscuit and a barrel of flour had gone musty until they fairly were rotten; and all the other things that I came across were spoiled utterly by damp and mould. As for the stores for the crew, when I went forward to have a look at them, they were spoiled too the flour and biscuit rotten, and the pickled meat a mouldy mass of tough fibre encrusted thickly with salt.

Low alluvial tracts in the valleys of the Rivers Negro and Colorado are also encrusted, and in the latter valley such spaces appeared to be occasionally overflowed by the river. I observed saline incrustations in some of the valleys of Southern Patagonia. At Port Desire a low, flat, muddy valley was thickly incrusted by salts, which on analysis by Mr.

When he made out the outlines of a horse not more than half a dozen feet from the open doorway the animal so encrusted with snow that he looked like a pallid ghost and a shapeless bundle on his back that seemingly was ready to pitch into a huge drift that had formed in front of the cabin he leaped outward, a groan of sympathy breaking from him.
