To The Bosphore Égyptien

Author : Arthur Rimbaud

Year : 1887

On the road from Hérer, Dedjatch Mékonène, representing the King in Harar, has shipped from Harar to Shoa 3,000,000 rounds of ammunition, and other munitions that the English commissaries ordered to be abandoned for the profit of Emir Abdoullahi during the Egyptian evacuation.

This whole road was impressively constructed for the first time by M. Jules Borelli on his recent trip to Harar in May 1886. It is geodesically connected to the topography and is parallel to the Itous Mountains.
