Excerpt from Travels in the South of Europe and in Brazil, Vol. 1: With a Voyage Up the Amazon, Its Tributary the Xingu', Now First Explored, by His Royal Highness
On my return from a voyage in the Neapolitan steamer Palermo round Sicily and to Malta, in the course of which I ascended fetna, accompanied by my Brother Waldemar, I took leave at Naples of my Father and Brother, and, joined by my two faithful travelling companions, Captain (now staff-major) Count Oriolla, and Second Lieutenant (now First Lieutenant in the Dragoon Guards) Count Bismark, on board the Fran cesco went to Genoa, to offer my thanks in person to his Majesty the King of Sardinia, for his gracious and most welcome offer of a frigate to convey me to.
