Royalty document from Hodder & Stoughton Ltd. - Tschiffely's books had brought in the princely sum of £2.16.4!  (That's two pounds, sixteen shillings and fourpence in Britain's pre-decimal currency.)

Aimé Tschiffely was a Freemason!  This is one of his Masonic certificates....

... and this is the other.

Thanks to Oscar Solanet, we have a copy of the letter Aimé wrote to his father to enquire about using Criollo horses for his journey. Interestingly, when he wrote the letter in November 1924 he had a slightly different itinerary in mind.
