The wind coming more from the northward, we shaped our course for Dilli, in Timor, on the chance of there hearing of the Emu.
In five days we reached Dilli, which is a Portuguese settlement on the north-west coast of Timor.
Who could prepare shiro, and wotz, and Dilli, like Etagainya?
I found the fruit in the Dilli of the natives on the 21st June, and afterwards most abundantly in the stomach of the emu.
My first remark was invariably, "Dilli nitchika," which means, "Put out your tongue."
