Nelson THE ENGINEERS' CAMP NEAR PUQUIURA Owing to the prevalence of an epidemic of smallpox and typhoid in Puquiura, one engineering party, that had the misfortune to lose its tent by fire, made its camp in a cave said by the natives to have been an Inca prison. It was not very comfortable, but it was dry and it was sanitary.
