If Fergusson was the brains and Kennedy the muscles, Joe supplied the sleight of hand. He had already gone with his master on several journeys and had picked up a smidgen of science in his own way; but he was especially remarkable for his cheery outlook, his engaging optimism; he found everything easy, reasonable, and natural, consequently he never saw any need to moan or groan. Among other gifts, he enjoyed eyesight of amazing strength and range; he shared with Maestlin, Kepler’s teacher, the rare ability to see Jupiter’s moons without a spyglass, and he could count fourteen stars in the Pleiades group, whose farthest members are of the ninth magnitude.

Soon he was reading about bold undertakings, exploratory voyages, and they fired his imagination; he got all caught up in the discoveries that marked the first part of the nineteenth century; he daydreamed of the glory earned by Mungo Park, Bruce, Caillié, Levaillant—and even, I suspect, by Selkirk, who equaled them in his eyes.
