Around the World on Wheels

McIlrath, H. Darwin. Around the World on Wheels for the Inter Ocean the Travels and Adventures in Foreign Lands of Mr. and Mrs. H. Darwin McIlrath. [Chicago]: Inter Ocean Pub. Co., 1898.

When I consented to the plan of going around the world I intended to make the trip alone, but my wife pleaded so hard to accompany me that I finally concluded to take her. She is a brave little girl, and rather than considering her a burden, I now look upon her as having been of great help to me on our memorable voyage. Aside from the fact that she is an expert wheelwoman, she is also an unerring shot. Nerve she possesses in abundance, as all will agree after reading of the adventures which befell us.

Rest not
Life is sweeping by
go and dare before you die.
Something mighty and sublime,
leave behind to conquer time.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
