Jonveaux followed the course of the Nile into Abyssinia where he
witnessed the Abyssinian wars against the English, particularly the
Battle of Magdala. Of sporting interest, he hunted elephant near the
Setit River, though his native guides were forced to use swords against
a bull when his rifle didn't bring it down [Czech, An Annotated
Bibliography of African Big Game Hunting Books, 1785-1950, p.87].
