We hear also for the first time of the "powder-horn" and the "cartouch-box."
Reverend Mr. Emerson was there with his gun and powder-horn.
He grabbed his gun and placed his bullets and powder-horn in readiness.
Crossed on his breast were the straps by which were supported his powder-horn and shot-flask.
After we had supped, before lying down I gave my powder-horn a shake.
I also heard the captain calling out to the steward to bring him a powder-horn.
Should he return for the powder-horn, and then waste time in reloading, the zambo might escape.
“If that was so, no one would have left his powder-horn behind,” observed Pat.
I told him that I had lost my powder-horn, and that my rifle was unloaded.
He produced also a powder-horn, which I slung over my shoulder, and a bag of bullets.
