Next morning, on the same course…

6:45

7:34

The report in its unmistakable…

4:49

They marched…

7:33

No money and no preferment…

8:22

The room, with its dirty cushions…

7:50

Huneefa's crisis passed…

He drew from under the table…

4:52

Kim watched the last dusty sunshine fade…

6:37

The pallor of hunger suited Kim…

'This comes next,' said Kim…

7:04

'The old man still sleeps…'

7:04

Chapter 14

6:08

There stood an empty bullock-cart…

8:12

'What matter? When I must have him…'

4:36

By this I knew that I was free.
