  In his travels he comes to a bridge made entirely of bones.

Before crossing he writes a letter to his mother: Dear mother,

guess what? the ape accidentally bit off one of his hands while

eating a banana. Just now I am at the foot of a bone bridge. I

shall be crossing it shortly. I don't know if I shall find hills and

valleys made of flesh on the other side, or simply constant

night, villages of sleep. The ape is scolding me for not teaching

him better. I am letting him wear my pith helmet for

consolation. The bridge looks like one of those skeletal

reconstructions of a huge dinosaur one sees in a museum. The

ape is looking at the stump of his wrist and scolding me again.

I offer him another banana and he gets very furious, as though

I'd insulted him. Tomorrow we cross the bridge. I'll write to

you from the other side if I can; if not, look for a sign . . .
