Carlos Cornejo e Jo„o Emilio Gerodetti

Porto de CorumbŠ, on the banks of the Rio Paraguai, in a postcard mailed in 1905 with the following message for Miss B. Jacob, of Neuch‚tel, Switzerland: CorumbŠ is the capital of an immense Brazilian province, partially unexplored and unknown, that contains incalculable riches in gold, diamonds, and rubber, but these, unfortunately, are accompanied by a few inconveniences: wild beasts,  alligators, and above all by deadly fevers.
