THE

LIFE and ADVENTURES

OF

ROBINSON CRUSOE.

SWAS born of a good family in the city of York,
where my father, who was a native ofBremen, had fettled after his having got a handfome estate by mnerchandize. My heart began to be very early filled with rambling thoughts, and tho', when I grew up, my father often perfuaded me to fettle to fome bufinefts, and my mother ufed the tendereft intreaties, yet nothing could prevail upon me to lay aide my defire of going to fea and I at length refolved to gratify my roving difpofition, notwith, standing the extreme uneafinels my father and mother always fltbowed at the thoughts of my leaving them. As if bent on my own deltrution, I hardened myfelf againft the prudent and kind advice of the molt indulgent parents; and being one day at Hull, where I met with one of my companions, who was going to fea in his father's this, he really per, funded inmc to go with him.

fr ROBISNSON CRUSOE.
On the firit of September, 16 51, I went on board this thip, which was bound for London, and without letting my father know the raih and disobedient ftep I had taken, fet fail; but no foonrer was the ihip out of the Humber, than the wind began to blow, and the fea to rife in a moft terrible manner. Having never been at fea before, I was extremely fick, and my mind was filled with terror. I then began to grow fenfible of my wickednefs in difobeying the bell of parents, and their good counfel, tear and intreaties came areth into my mind, and filled me with fear and remorfe. I expected every wave would fwallow us up, and in the agony of my mind, made vows and refoltions, that if it should pleafe God to fpare my life in this one voyage, I would go direly home to my father, and and never fet foot into a hip again.
The next day the wind abated, and the fea grew calm; I was no longer fea-lick, and my companion laughed at my fears; he ridiculed my gravity, and with a bowl of punch made me hall drunk, and thus drowned my repentance and all my foberrefleaions. The weather continued calm forfeveral days, and we at length came into Yarmouth road, where we call anchor to wait fir a wind. After riding here four or five days, the wind blew very hard, the road, however, being reckoned almost as good as an harbour, we. were under no apprehenfions, but fpent the time in relt and nairth, 'till the eighth day m the morning, when the wind increat4ed, and w4 bad all hands at work to strike our tpmnaftst and to callour flctt anchor.





ROBINSON CRUSOE
It now blew a terrible Itorm ; I began to ree terror and amazement in the faces evenly of the feamen themnfelves; and as the matter paffed by ine, I could hear him fay foitly to himrfelf, 11 Lord be merciful to us, we MballI all be loft." During the firit hurry, I was ifupid, lying ffill in my cabin in the itevrago. I could ill refoune the penitence I had fb apparently trampled upon : I even hardened myfelt againft it, and thought that this ftorm would pAtsovtie like thle it*I. But when the matter came by me, and {iid we fisould all be loft, I- was terribly frighteoedt I got up out of my. cabin, and looked about; but fuch a difmal fight I never before faw; th*'fe ran, nmutains higlr and broke upon us every three or four minutes : Afluip foundered asadiftaneel two' fliipsthat were near us, had cut'their mustls by the* board; and the mate avid boatswain bergged4 ot the mailer to let them tut away our'fernaff.
I cannot express the horror of mind with which I was then feized ; I was in ten ti mes vaore terror on account of my having, tlhghted my former convictions, than even, at death itself. The itin'm ftill in. created,, and I faw, (wh-it is but to Islom 4feim) the matter, the boatfivain, and feveral; other s, at, prayers, expedi ng that etery moment the (hip would go, to the bottom.

I workerlwirhtffe refit butt thavater gained. upon us, and it inns appate nt

that the ihip would founder; the form, however, beginning to abate, the mattiler fired guns for help, and a light thip, who had rid it out juft a-head of us, ventured a boat out to help us. It was with the utmoft hazard that it came near us, ; but the men ventured their lives to fave ours; and our men calting a rope over the itern with a buoy, they, after much labour and hazard, got hold of it, and we, hauling them clofe under the flern,got all into the hoat. Bu; we had hardly left the thip a quarter of an hour, when we faw her founder: My heart was in a manner dead within me, with fright, horror of mind, and the thoughts of what was yet before ame.
As it is impoflible for the boat t get up with the
fhip to which the belonged, we endeavoured to reach S thedhore, and partly by rowing, and partly by being
driven by the waves, we at lafl,:with great difficulty,
Lot to land, and walked to Yarmouth.
Had I now had the fenfe to return home, my father would have received me with tenderness ; but a weak and foolish thame oppofed all thoughts of it.
I remained fome time in doubt what courfe to take; but having money in, my pocket, I travelled to London by land.
On my arival in that city, I happily fell into no
bad company; but being well dreffed, I contra6ed an acquaintance with the matter of a thip who had been on the coat of Guinea, and having had good fuccefs there, wasrefolved-to go again; and he tak,
ig a fancy to me, told me that if I would go the
voyage with him, I should be at no expenfe ; and if I would carry any thing with me, I (hould hava

the advantage of trading for myfelf. Encouraged by this offer, by the afEifance of fome of my relations, with whom I fill corresponded, I raised 401. which I laid out in fuch toys and trifles, as my friend, the Captain, direied me to buy. This voyage made me both a failor and a merchant; for I bi c ought home five pounds nine ounces of gold duflt for my adventure, which yielded me in London, at my return, almoft 3sool.
I was now let up for a Guinea trader; anti my friend, to my great misfortune, dying fogn atter his arrival, I refolv-ed to go the fame voyage again, and having left 2ool. in the hands of my friend's widow, I embarked in the fame veffel with one who was his mate in the former voyage, and had now the command of the fhip. This was one of the molt unhappy voyages that ever man had made for as we were fleering between the Canary iflands and the Afr:ca'i fihore, we were furprifed in 'the gray of the morning by a Moorifh rover of Sallee, who gave chafe to us, with all the fail fhe could make. About t re in the aftynoon he came up with us, and a very fmart engagement enfued; but after havingtwice cleared the deck of the Moors, and loft three of cur men, and bad eight wounded, we were obliged to fubmit, and were all carried prifoners into Sallee, a port belonging to the Moors.
The ufage I found was not fo dreadful as I at fitrt apprehended; nor was I carried, as the reft of our menwere,to theEmperor's Court, bumt waskept by the Captain of the rover as his own prize, and made his flave,




o ROBINSON CRUSOE.
My matter having the long-boat of our Englitlh thip, had a little late room, or cabin, built in the middle of it, like a barge In this pleafure boat he frequently went out a fiflhing, and as I was molt dexterous at catching fifth for him, he never went without me. One day he had appointed to go out in this boat with two or three Moors of fome ditinction. But in the morning he came on board, telling me that his guelts had declined going, and or. dered me, with ihe man and boy, to ladil out with the boat and catch fome fiflh, for his friends were to fup with him.
At this moment, the hopes of my deliverance darted into my thoughts, and I refulved to furnish myfelf for a voyage. I told the Moor, that we muft not prefume to eat our mafter's bread; he faid that )vas true, and brought a large basket of rufk, and three jars of freth water into the boat. I knew where my nmafter's cafe of bottles flood, which ap. peared byltheir make to have been taken out of fame Englith prize, and I conveyed them into the bdata while the Moor, whom we called Muley, was on thore i anti alfo a great lump of bees-wax, with a parcel of twine, of whicr I afterwards made can. ,idles, a hatchet, a faw, and a haminer.
Every thing being prepared, we failed out of tlhe post to filh; hbut putrpofely catching none, I told Alutey, that this would not do, and that we mult ftind furtheroff, which he agreeing to, fet the fails, and I having lh e helm, ran the boat out near a league father, and then brought her to as if I would filth, when giving the boy the helm, I ftept

forwards, and flooping behind the Moor, took him by furprife, and toffed him overboard into the feA ; he arfe immediately, for he fwam like a cork, and called to meto take him in; but fetching oneof the fowling-pieces, I prefented it at him, and told him that if he came near the boat, I would flhoot him through the head i but as the fea was calm, he might eafily reach the fhore. So he turned about, and fwam towards the land, and as he was an excellent swimmer, I make no doubt but he reached it
with cafe.
When he was gone, I turned to the boy, whom
they called Xury, and faid to him, Xury, if you will be faithful tome, I will make you a great man, but if you will not firoke your face to be true to me, (that is, fwear by Mahomet and his father's beard) I muff throw you into the Fea too. The boy fminiled in my face, and fpoke fo innocently, that I could not miffruft him; he fwore ta be faithful to
me, and to go over all the world with me.
While I was in view of Muley, I flood outto fea*
.t t he might think me gone to the Straits, as
y body in his wits would have done; but it so
oner grew dark, than I foolishly changed my urfe and fleered to the fouth, and having a frth S gale of wind, I made fuch fail, thatbefore the end
of the next day, I believe, I was beyond the Emperor of Morocco's dominions. Yet fo dreadful were my apprehenfions of falling again into my after's hands, that I would not iop to go on flthore, till I had failed in that manner five days ;
and then the wind fbifting to the southward, I ven-

I was loath to take; for I was unwilling to fell the bcy's liberty who had affifted me Io faithfully in procuring my own; but when I told him the reafon, he oa ned it to be juft, and offered to give the boy an obligation to let him free in ten years, if he turned Chriftian; and Xury readily confentirg, I let the Captain have him.
We had a very good voyage to the Brazils,and arrived in All Saints Bay min about twenty-two days. The generous treatment of the Captain I can never enough admire; he recommended me to an hone ft man who had a plantation and a fugar boule, with whom I lived till I had learnt the manner of plant. ing and making fugar, after which I took out a let. ter of naturalization, pmu chafed a piece of land that was uncultivated, and became a planter.
I at fiftlaboured under foamne difficulties and was oblibed to undergo much fatigue. For two years I rather planted for food than for any thing lce; b .t havingat length cleared a fufficient quan. tity of land, I planted fometobacco and a few fugar canes, and began to thrive. Meanwhile the good Captain who had taken me up at lea, and whom I had intrufted with getting for me, on his return to Europe, half the money I had left in London, received tool. out of the sool.I had left there, and laying it out to the belt advantage,in toolsandEnglith cloth, fluffs, &cc. he arrived in Brazil with his treafuse, which turned to great account, and enabled me to advance my plantation, and to purchacfe two Negroc flaves, and an European fervast.

75 ROBINSON CRUSOE.
The flf1 time I went out, I had the pleafuore to t fnd, that there were goats in the ifland ; but they Iwere fo (hy, fo fulotle, and fo fwift of foot, that it was the moff diffiult thing in thle world to come up with the-m ;but obferving that they did not Ce-ftiy fee obj-ctsahove them, I killed them by climbing the rocks, 3zd fhoorng at thofe in the valleys. During thefe rounds, I found in the woods a kind of wild pigeons, which built in boles of the rocks and taking fumne young ones, I endeavoured to breed flhem tip tanse, but when they grew old they r
flew away ; however I frequently found their I
nelfts, and got their young ones, which were very good Meat.
After I had been about ten or twelve days on fliore, it came into my thoughts that I lisould lufe m-y rcooning of time, and should not be able to distinguifhi 11he Sundays from the working days. To Prevent thiis. I fet up a large fquare poft on the ihni e where 1Ifird landed, and cut upon it with a knife. 11 1 care on (ihore here thie 3oth of Sept. .1659." Upon the iidrs I cut cc cry day a notch, 2od every fevvnrth notch'was as long again as the rell, and every firft of the month as long again as lh~it lound one ; and thus I kept myweekly, monthly, ~ad yearly reckoning.

When my hahithi.n was finithed, according to my firft plan, I found it far too 'inall to conrarn my moveablese every thing was in a confused irep. and I had hardly room to torn m% felf ; fo I let about enlarging my cave, and iaboured heartily till I had worked fidevays ioto the rack fa,-t' cr than, my outfide pale, and hevving a esay through, mnad,! a back door to my florchoute. But I had icarctly linnffhed my habstation, when I had like to have been burittd in its ruins.

There were three fhocks at about eight minutes ditance, fol as I believe %ould have- over-, turned the flrorr&elt building; and about Isalfa ujlt

from me, a great piece of a rock fell down, with the mnoft terrible noife I ever heard.
The fear of being fwallowed up alive prevented mny fleeping in quiet, and Ithoughtofmaking myfelf a tent at fome diffance from the rock; yet the apprehenfions of lying abroad without a fence was almoft equally terrible, and when I faw myfelf concealed and fafe from every other danger, I was loath to remove.
In fome little time I recovered from my fright, and after that frequently killed goats for my fubfiftance, whole fat supplied my lamp, which was a dith made of clay baked in the tun, and for a wick I made ufe of oakum. In the midft of all my labours, when I was rummaging among my things, I found a little bag with a few hulks of corn in it, 1 hook. it our by the fide of my fortification. This was juit before fome heavy rain, and about a month afterwards I faw fome green Italks shooting out of the ground: but lhow great was my aftonithment, when, fome time after, I faw about tenor twelve ears of barley:- It "as sometime before I recollecled the bag with the hulks, and I thought that they could have been produced by nothing lels than a miracle. With this barley there aifo came up a few ftalka of rice, and there weie worth more to me than fifty times their weight in gold, and I carefully preferred them for ieed.
Vhen I had been about-a yearin the ifland, I was taken extremely ill, whic ft ightened me terribly, ijmnaginig I should die for want of proper help.





ROBINSON CRUSOE. 29
This fit of illnefs proved a violent ague, which made me fo weak I could hardly carry my gun, and when the lit was on me, I was almost perilthed with thirift.
Soon after my recovery, I took a furvey of the ifland, and at about two miles distance from my habitation, found fome fine favannabs, and a little further a variety of fruit, melons upon the ground, and vines fpread over the trees, covered with clusters of ripe grapes. I proceeded with my difcoveries, and travelled four miles farther, when I came to an opening that feemed to defcend to tl e weft, where every thing was in fuch conflant verdure, that it looked like a beautiful garden. I went into this delicious valley, and found cocoa, orange, lemon, and citron trees. I now had bullnefs enough, for I re.oli'ed to lay up a ftore. I hurried fome grapes and a few lines back with me, but the gapes were spoiled before I got home. I went the next day with bags, tainkin. to b1 ing home my harvelt but I found a large parcel of grapes which I had laid on a heap, fpread ab.oad and trod to pieces. I therefore found, that there was no laying them upon heaps, nor carrying them away in lacks, fince they would be cruflhed by their own weight; fo I gathered a large quantity of then and hung them upon the out- beaches ofi trees, that they might cure and dry in the ftna but as for the limes and lemons, I carried as many as I could well Itand under.
I was fo enamoured with this place, that I built C 3






myfelf a box r, fenced w'th a double hedge; and' this country houfe, as I called it, cot me two months labour ; but I hardly began to enjoy my habitation, when the rains came on, arid I was obliged to retreat to my old one, taking with me my grapes, which were now become fine raifins of the fun.
The rainy and dry feafons now appeared regular to me; but I bought my experience before I had it, I dug a piece of ground as well as I1 could, with a wooden fpade of my own making, and began to fow my grain; but as I was doing it, it occurred to my thoughts, that I would not fow all for fear it should not grow, fo I referred about a handful of each fort; and well it was I did fo ; for it did not come up till many months afterwards. When I faw it did nct grow, I fought for moifter ground, and dug up a piece near my new bower, which answered to my wishes, and my crop amounted to about halfa peck of each kind; by this means I was made mafer of my bufinefs a knew when to fow, and that I might expe& two feed times, and two harvefts ev ey year; i for the corn I fet firft came up after the next wet feafon.
In one of the dry fa!bns I took another ramble, armed with my gun, and a hatchet, and guarded by nm faithful dog. When I had paffed the valley in which flood my bower, I came within view of the fea, and it being a clear day, I plainly discovered land; but whether island or continent, I could not telli I gurffed that it could not be lefs than we

while my corn was in the blade, fo the birds were rny enemies when it was in the ear; for going along to fee how my hai velt throve, I faw my little crop furrounded with fowls of I know not how many forts. I let fly among them, and therearofe a litle cloud of fowls from the corn itfelf. This touched me fenfibly, tor a fingle gr ain might be faid, in its confequence, to be a peck loaf to me. While I was loading my gun again, I could fee the thieves upon all the trees round me, waiting for my absence and having gone a little way, I turned my head, and faw them dropping one by one into my corn. I had not patience to flay till more came, but again I t off my piece, and having killed three, I ujed hem as we do murderers in England, hanged them in chains to ferve as a terror to the reft. Not a towl afterwards came near my corn, or indeed the place, as long as my fearecrows hung there.

At the end of my harveft, I gueffed that I had a buthel of rice, and two bufhels and a half of barley. I kept all this for feed, and bore the want of bread with patience, as I had now a tolerable profpet of having as much as I wanted.
This article of bread was a great difficult; I had neither plough, nor harrow; for the firit, I made my fhovel do, and to fupply the place of a harrow, I went over myfelf, dragging after me the heavy bough of a tree. And when I came to make bread

I made a cap out of a goat's ikin, with the hair fide outwards, to throw off the rain, and alfo another wailtcoat of the lame fkms ; but I nult acknowledge that they'were wretchedly done; for if I was a bad carpenter, I was a wurfe tailor. I made me too an umbrella, which I could fthut up and take abroad with me, and this fecurtd me both from the heat and the rain. Three or four years after, I made a little boat, my umbrella ferving both for amaitt and an awning. This I launched for a fea voyage ; but let this be a warning to all rafl(h and inconfiderate pilots ; I put off, and found a great ledge of rocks lying about two leagues in the fea, fome above water, and fume under it, and a great thoal of fand lying dry for half a league beyond them, to that I flthouldi be obli-. ged to go a great way out to fea to double the point. Seeing this, [ thought of giving over the enterprise, and casting anchor, went on thore, when climbing a flfeep hill that overlooked the point, I faw the full extent of it, and that a mol fnrious current ran to the eatl, with a firong eddy nearer the (bore, fo that I had nothing to do but to get out of the current, and I should presently be in the eddy. I therefore refolved to venture.
The wind, however, blowing pretty hard, I lay

There was nowind flirting to help me, and all that I could do with my paddle fignified nothing. I now looked back upon my difconfolate folitary island, as the moit pleafant place in the world; and firetched out my hands to it with eager wifles: 0 happy defert! laid I, I tha!l never fee thee more a 0 miferable creature that I am, whither am [going. Then I reproached myfelf with my unthankful temper, and how I had repined at my flitary con. dition, and now what would I give to be on thore there again. I worked hard til my ftrength was almoil exhauflkd; and kept my boat as near as poffable to that fide of the current ow which the eddy lay; when about noon, I thought I fet a little breeze of wind in my face, blowingltowards the bhore. This revived my (pirits, ei pecially when in about half an hour more it blew a fmallgentle gale. By this time I was got at a frightful distance from the ifland; and had the leaft cloud or hazy weather inter ened, I (hould have been undone another way, for I had no compafs on boards and should never have known how to have steered to. wards the iland, if I had but once left fight of it ;

My dog, who was grown very old, fat always at my ight hand, and my two cats, one on the one fide of the table, and the other on te other. I had at length a great mind to go to the point of the i1and, to fee how the flhore lay, and refolved to travel thither by land. And now, reader, I will give thee a flort (ketch of tne figure I made. I had a great high fhapelefs cap made of goat's fkin, a jacket with the skirts coming down to the middle of my thighs, and a pair of open.kneed breeches of the fame, with the goat's hair hanging down to tlhe middle of my leg. Stockings and fhoes I had none, but I had made a pair of fomnethings, I fcarce knew what to call them, to flap over my legs like fpatterdafhes; but of a mol barbarous fhap e, and fo indeed were all the reft of my clothes : I had a broad belt of goat ikin dried, and in a frog Lung on one fide a law, and on the other a hatchet. I had another belt, not fo broad, falftened over myflioulder; under my arm hung two pouches for my (hot and pow der ; on my back I carried a basket, on my shoulder a gun, and over m.y head a great clumfy ugly goat's fkin umbrella. My beard was cut flort, except what grew on my upper lip, whic I had trimmed into a large pair of Mahemetan wiilkers; but as for my figure, I had fo few to obfez ve, that it was of no manner of confequence.
In this figure I went my new journey, and was
D

When I came to the hill, I was furpri'red to find the fea all finnoth and quite, no i iping, no motion, no current, any more thanins othcr placts ; but in the evening I found a cmrrent a Isfcre. I ufed firetluently to 'Alit my bout and. one day at non, when I wa going to it, I was exceedlingly furprifed wvith the print ofa man's fine on th e fhcr-?, which wAas plainly to be feen in the TAd. I ttod like one thunderfiruck;. I liflened, I looked round me, I could hear nothing, nor iee any thing, I went upon a rising ground to l-ok farther :I walked backwards and forwards on the flacre, but I could fee only tha, one imprefflon : I xvent ru lcuk at it again, there was plainly a loot, t ces, hcel, and every Fart very diftina :How it caine tl~eie, I knew not ; but I hurried home to my fortifications, looking behind ire every two or three fleps, and fancying every tree, bulh, and floump, to be a man. I h~ad nio Peep that night ; ut mly tt-rcr gradually wore off, and I ventured down to take rne,-,[re of the foot by my own, but I found it To lb much 1h.rgrr. This filled inf. again with ri,diculolss whnmis, andl %Kh-n I went home, I began t-) &Irabe moy fortifications, planted my feven musonZ 011carriages, in the manner of cannon-, and Wa3 at the expenfe ot an intinice deal of labour, purely from my apprehenfions of this print of a foot.

After I had thus fecured one part of ny livP Itoick, Went about thre ot ole ifland, and I-amoliog motre to the welbon point than I had ever done before, I Was pr-efently on-vinctd that the facing the print trf a mnar, s foot, was not luch a Itrange thing in th:e ifland, as I had imagined ;for on my approach. in, the fihore, 1 was perfe611y confounded and ainazed, nor is it poffible to express the horror I f;It at feeing thtr thore fpread with fkulls, hands, feet, and other bones of human bodies; and particularly a place, where, as I tuppofed, there h-ad been a fira made, and a circle dug in tne earth far the favage virctches to fit downs to their itibuman feafts, on thle bodies of their fellow-creatures. I turned away mny face from the hor rid fpeaacle ; my flo mach grew lick i I was juft on the point of fainting ana left the place as fcoon as poffibic.
WAhen I got a little out of that part of the Mfan?], I looked up with the utmolt affzc61ion of foo,, and with tears in mny eyes gave God thanks for placing tue in a part of the %orld where I was diffingmsilled from fitch wretched creatures. as thefe.

found behind the buth I was cutting, a hollow place, which I was curious to look into, and getting with difeitulty into its mouth, I found it was efficient for me to ftand upright in; nut looking farther into the place, which was perfealy dark, I faw two broad fltiniing eyes, which twinkled like two ftnars, from a dim light refleded from the mouth of the cave. At this I went out falter than I got in; but piracking up my courage, I took a great firebrand, and ruffled in again with it flaming in my hand-, when I was almost as much frighted as be fore; for I heard a loud figh, followed by a broken noife, and then a figh again. I flepped back, ftruck with luch furprife that it put me in a cold feat. However I recovered refolution enough to fitep forward again, and lifting up my light, I faw lying on the ground a moift monfiruous he-goat gafping f,r life.
I now recovered from my fright, and began to look round me. This cave was about twelve feet ove,, and I obf rve I that on the farther fide was an opening, intowhich I crept on my hands and knees, but as I h:id co other hght, I deferred going farther tha thie entratice till the next day, when I brought candles of my own nt kng, and crept about tea yards, a after which the roof role to about twenty feet high, and the wall refle&rt an hundred thoufarnd lights front my two candles.

knocked him down with the flock of my piece: The othrr flopped as if frightened; but when I advanced towards him, I perceived hlie was fitting his bow to isoot me, upon which I (hot him dead directly. The poorl- favage who had fled, was fo terrified at the noife of my piece, though he law his enemies fallen, that he food flock liill ; but seemed rather inclined to fly than to come towards me. However, when I gave him figns of encourage. ment, he came nearer, kneeling downevery ten or eleven fleps ; on his coming clofe to me, hie kneeled down again, laid his head upon the ground, and placed my foot upon it. But there was more work to do, the man I knocked down came to himfelf, and my favage began to be afraid. I then prefented my piece at the man, when the poor fellow, whole life I had faved, made a motion for my fword, which I gave him, and he flruckoffbhis enemy's head atone blow, and in a quarter of an hour buried both the bodies in the fand. I then rook him away to my cave at the farther part of the iflind. Here I gave him bread, and a bunch of raifins to ear, and a draught of water, which he wanted muchi and having refrefled him, I made figns for him to lie down on fome rice ftraw, which the poor creature did foon and went to fleep.
He was a well-made handsome fellow, of about twenty-fix years of age, of an olive-coloured coinmplexion, with long black hair. He had a mall atfe that was not flat, and fine teeth as white as

ivory. After he had flept about half an hour, he waked again, and came running to me in the inciofure,juit by where I had been milking my goats. Then failing down again, he laid his head flat upon the ground, and fet my other foot upon it, as before, and after this madeall poffible figns ufthankfulnefs, fubje1tion, and fubmiffion. I began to peak to him, and to teach him to peak to me; and firit, I made him know that his name fould be Friday, which was the day wherein I faved his life. I taught him to fay Maffer, and let him know that was to be my name. The next day I gave him clothes, at which he feemed pleaded. As we went by the place where he had buried the two men, he pointed exa&ly to the place, making figns that hie would dig them up again and eat them; at this I appeared very angry, and beckoned with my hand to him to come away, which hlie did immedi. lately.
Having now more courage, and confequently more curiofity, I took my man Friday with me, giving him the word, with the bow and arrows at his back, which I found he could ufle very dexter. oufly. I alfo gave him one gun to carry, and taking two for myfelf, away we marched to the place where his enemies had been : When I came there, my blood ran cold in my veins: the place was covered with human bones, and the ground dyed with blood: great pieces of fleth were left here and there, half eaten, mangled, and scorched. I faw

three Ikulls, five hands, and the bones of three or four legs and feet ; and Friday, by his figns, made me understand, that they brought over four prifiners to feat upon, that three of them were eaten up ; that he, pointing to himfelf, was the fourth, and that they had been conquered, and taken prifoners in war.
I caufed Friday to colic& te remains of this horrid carnage, then to light a flue, and burn them to afhies. When this w:us done we returned to our cattle. The next day I made a little tent on the outfideof myfortification, and at night took in my ]adder, that he might not be able to get at me whije Iflept. But there was no need of this precaution, for never man had a more faithful fervant ; he had the fame affe6ion for me as a child has for a father, and I dare fay, he would have facrificed his life to fave mine. I was greatly delighted with him, and made it my bufinefs to teach him every thing proQper to render him useful; especially to fpeak, and underfiand me when I Ipoke ; and he was the apteft scholar that ever was; then he was fo merry, fo diligent, and fo pleaded when he couid understand me, or make me underfitand him, that he was a very agreeable companion.
After I had been two or three days returned to my caffle, I thought that in order to bring him off from the relish of human flefh, I ought to let him tafte other flefli ; Co I took him out with me one morning to the woods, in order to take a kid from my herd i but as I was going, I faw a the-goat

lying down in the (hade, and two young kils fitting by her; when mAking figns to Friday not to ffir, I fInot one of the kids.
Having brought home the kid, I cut it out, and boiling fomrne of the fleth, made very good broth ; af-er I had eat fome, I give it to Friday, who feemed glad of it, and liked it very well. Having thus fed hiot with boiled meat and broth, I feafted him the next day with a piece of roafted kid, hanging it before the fire with a firing. This Friday admired very much, and made me at lafit underhand that he would never eat man's flelh any more, which I was very glad to hear.
The neit day I fet him to beat out fame corn, and fift it; and foon after I let him fee me nake my bread,-and bake, and in alittl4tinmeFriday was able to do all the work for me, as well as I could do it myfelf. I now found it neceffary to fow a larger quantity of corn than I ufed to do, and therefore, with Friday's affiltance, enlarged my ftnce. In fhort, this was the pleafanteft year I had led in the island ; for as my man began to talk pretty well, I had famrne ufe for my tongue again, and besides the pleafure of talking to him again, I had a fingular fazisfa&;on in his honesty and affec&ion, which appeared more and more every day, fo that I began really to love him.
I did not fail to inftrut this poor creature, as well as I was able, in the principles of religion, aud he listened to me with great attention. One




~OW~tlll~ 47
day, when I had been talking to him on this fobje6t, he told mre, that if our God could hear us beyond the fun, he was a greater God than their Benamnkee, who lived but little off, and yet could not hear till the Oowokakee, or priefis, went up the great mountains, where hie dwelt, to fpeak to him.
I deferibed to him the countries of Europe; and particularly England; how we lived how we worshipped God; and ihow we traded in fhips to all the parts of the world: I gave him an account of the wreck I had been on board of, and flowed him the ruins of our boat, which we loft when we efcaped, and which I could not ftir with all my fi ength then, but was now almoft fallen to pieces. Upon feeing this boat, Friday flood mufing a great while, and laid nothing ; when asking what he was thinking of, he at laft faid, Mee fee like boat come to place at my nation. WVe fave the white mans from drown. I then afked him, if there were atny white mans, at he called them, in the boat ? Ye., he faid, the boat full of white mans. I alked him how many ? He told me, upon his fingers, feventeen. I then afked him, what became of them ? and he replied, They live, theydwell atmy nation. I ptefently imagined, that thefe might be the men belongingto tk-e fthlip thatwascaft aavin fightof my ifland, who after the thip hqd ftruck on a rock, had fared themfelves in their boat. I then inquired what was become of them, and he affured mae that hisa




countrymen gave them vituals. I afked him why they did not kill them ard eat them; He laid, No they mike brother with him. They no eat mans but when make the Aar fight. that is, they never eat any men but fich as are taken in battle.
Aconfidcrable time after this, being on the top of the h;Il at the ea-fide uf the ifland, from whence I had difcovered land, Friday looked very earnefily towards it, and, in a kand of furprife, fell a jumping and dancing, crying, O joy! O glad! there fee my country, there my nation I observed that his eyes fparkled, and his countenance difcovered an extraordinary .enfe ot pleafure. This obfervation gave me fome unealinefs, and I could not help apprehending, that if he thoold get back to his own nation, he would not only forget all his religion, but his obligations to me, and would perhaps come back with an hundred or two of his countrymen, and make a feaft upon me, at which he might be as merry as he ufed to be with thofe of his enemies whtn they were taken in war. But I wronged the poor honest creature very much. However, while my jealoufy laited, I every day endeavoured to penetrate into his thoughts.
One day, walking up the fame hill, I called to him, and laid, Friday, do not you with yourfelf in your own country ? Yes, laid he, I be much a glad to be at my own nation. What would you do there ? faid I : Would you eat man's flefh again and be a fa vage as you were before ? Hfie looked




full of concern, :and, baking his lizad, 1faid, Nj
oFriday tell them to live good tell then to pray Od ;tell them to eat corn-bread, al-(eh milk, no cat mnan's fl-'dh again. Why then, fald IL to ,him, they will kill you; iIe looked] gravc, and. r-aid, No, they no kill me, they wiflinog [nyC learn. lie meant they would b-j willing to learn. I then told him, that I would make a canoe'lor bun; and~ he replied, that he would go, if I would ,;, with him. I go! faid 1, why they will eat mne if I go there. No, no, fays he, me make them no eat "a, ine make they much love yous. He then told mne how kind they were to the feventeen white, or, bearded men, as he called them, who came on Yhore in dillrefs.
From this time I had a mind to venture over, and fee if I could poffibly join thtfe bearded men, Int douhingr but that we might find forpe means of efeapina fromi- thence. I therefore went with Fil. day to the other fide of the- idland, and flbowed him my boat, when hie getting into it, vna~jaged it with the greatest dextcriy ; hutc he thinking it too little, i afterwards bowed him the fieft boa, I had 1-nale ; but, as it had lain two or three and twenty Years, thiefun had fp~t it. I therefore told him, tliet we would go and m.&: onte as big as that, and he lbhouId go in it. At this hie looked uneasy, andi I StJked %hat was the matte with him To which hie retut tied, Why vou angry, mad w ith Friday, what 13r. done ? I lld 11im I was azt angry with hims.

I then fetched a comnpais of near a mile to come near them, and in this march I recolle~ed, that though. they wreegointg to offend theAlmighty tiy their bloody feaft, I had no tight to make myfeif the inftrument of his vengeance. This thought alliyed mny bta, and I refolved to be nonsorp than a fpe~a'or of their inhuman ba nquet.
WVi'h this refolution I entered the wood, and with the utmol'c prcaution marched with Friday clofe at my bedls, till we came near them, wheli fhowin7g Friday a great tree, I bid him Woily bring me word what ti ey were doing ; lie did fo, and coming back immediately, told me, that they were all about the fir e eating the flefh of one of their priloners, and that a bearded man lay bound uponi the fand, whom he faid they would kill next.

Hlie then fat down by him, held the olhi man's head clofe to his bofom, and chafed his arms and ancles, which were (Uff with binding.
After fome time I called him, and he came jumping, laughing, and pleaded to the higheft extreme. I gave him a cake of bread for his father, with a handful of raifins and a dram.for himfelf ; but he carried all to his father, and presently ran away fo Iwiftly, that he was in an infant out of light, and though I called after him, he never looked back; but in a quarter of an hour I law him return with a jug of freth water, which he gave the old man, who was ready to die with thirit. This water was a refretibment'to us all, especially to the Spaniard, who, 0iotwithlfianding his having exerted bipnlelf in the ight, was now unable to fand, his legs were fo 1welled.

cothplain, they were fo tired they could niot walk. At length we law them all go to the boat, which was aground itn the creek, the tide having ebbed out. When they faw the two men gone, they called to one another in the knolt lamentable man. ner, faying they were got into an enchanted island, that it was either inhabited, and they should be murdered, or that there were devils in it, and they fould be devoured. They hallooed and called their comrades by their names, and then ran about wringing their hands like men in defpair; it grew dark : 1 drew my ambiufcade nearer, and ordered Friday and the Captain to creep upon their hands and feet, that they might not be feen, and to get very near them before they fired; but one of the principal ringleaders of the mutiny, with 'wo of the crew came towards us, and the Captain was fo eagerat having himin his pcwer, that he let fly,and killed him and another man on the fpot ; the third ran for it. I immediately advanced with my whole army, when the man we took out of the boat, by my order, called to one of them by his name, Tom Smith. The fellow answered, Who is that, Robinfon ? The other returned, Ay, ay, for God's fake. Tom, thiow down your arms and yield, or you are all dead men this moment. Yield who muft we yield to ? fays Smith: Where are they ? Here they are, fays he, heri e's our Caprain with fifty men with him i the boatfnain and Will Fry are killed, and I am a prifoner. Will they give us quarter, fays Smith. The Captain- then called out, You know
F




ny voice, if you lay down your arms and fubmit, you hall all have your lives, but Will Atkins. Upon which Will Atkins called out, For God's fake, Captin, fpare my life, the reft are as bad as I: which was not true, for he had ufed the Captain very ill at the beginning of the mutiny. The Captain told him he muft lay down his arms at itcretion, and truff toithe Governor's mercy. Upon hlich they all fubmitted, and the Captain expollulated with them, on their villanous treatment of him He told them, that the Governor was an Englifhman, who intended to fend them all to England, except Atkins, who was to be hanged the next morning, and bid him prepare for death.
It was now determined to feize the (hip, and the Captain chofefive of thofe he liked het to aflilt him, while I kept the reft as hoffges for their fidelity. WVe then flopped thebreach in the broken boat, and having manned them both, the Capain went to the Ihip about midnight, got on board, and being Faithfully feconded, they knocked down the fecond mate and carpreter, with the butt-end of their mufkets, znd loon overcame the reft ; killed the rebel Captain, and filed feveral guns to give me a fignal of tieir fucctfs, which filled me with joy: foonafter the Captain called to me from the top of the hill, and I going to him, he embraced me in an ecitafy, telling me the (hip and cargo were all mine.

brought me to myfeif, and a little while after I recovered my (peech. I then, in my turn, embraced him as my deliverer, and we rejoiced together. Vhen we had talked while, he called aloud to the boat, and bid them bring the governor's prefent afiore, and indeed it was a prefent fit for a governor. Among other things, there was a very good fuit of clothes, with flhirts and neckclothis. I dreffed myfell in themL ad then appeared as governor before the prifo~ri4d. I afked them what they had to fay in their own defence, telling them I had power to execute them there. They pleaded the Captain's promife cf mercy, and I told them, that I intended to go paffenger in the fhip, with all my men; but that they, if they went, could only go as prifoners; observing, however, that they might, if they chore it, flay min the ifland. This they gladly accepted, and I prepared to go on board the next day, the Captain returning to the fip to get every thing ready for my reception.
WVhen he was gone, I talked to the men, told them my flory,and how Imanagedallmy bcufehold bufinefs; left a letter forthe fifteen Spaniards,and made them promife to treat them in common with themfelves. The next day I went on hoard the (hip, taking Friday with mn, but did not weigh that night and before we put cff, two of the men fwam to us from fhore, defiring to be taken in, or they should be murdered to which we agreed, and they afterwards became very honest fellows.

the other hand, two men in the (hip, fearing to be called to account in England, took the pinnace, and joined their old comrades on thore. Thus I left the inland, after being on it twenty-eight years.
On my arrival in England, I was as perfeR a ranger as if I had never been known there; my faithful fleward, the widow, was become poor my f .ther and mother were dead ; but I had two filters, and two of the children of one of my brothers wtre living. The merchant concerned in the (hip I had faved, having heard the Captain's flory, invited me to an entertainment, and made me a prefent of near sool. I ti en went to Lifbon, to fee after my effea in the Brazils, and found the ge. p rous Captain, who ha- been fo much my friend, still alive, and he put me in a way of recovering the produce of my plantation. And a few months a after, there arrived (hips in the Tagus, with effeas for my ufe, to the amount of 90001. besides 1ocol. a year, which I expeded to receive annually from mny plantation.
Having converted my money into bills of exchange, I refolved to travel to England by land, over the Pyrenean mountains. Poor Friday was terribly frightened when he faw mountains covered with Inow, and felt cold weather. As we were travelling, our guide was affaulted by two wolves when instead of drawing his piftol, he called out to us, and I bid Friday haften to fee what was the matter; i when, like a bpld fellow, he rode up aud

Eatee me up: me make you good laugh. The bear walked foftly on, till Friday coming pretty near, calls as if the bear could undlerfitand him. Hark ye, hark ye, me fpeakee with you, and then flung a great Itone at his head. As loon as he felt the ftProne, he came after him, with monlircus long ftrides. Away ran Friday towards us, as if he wanted help. Is this your m making us laugh, you dog, faid I, in a pallion,

The bear stopped to imell at the gun, and cl:im)ed the tree after him, when Friday getting to tllefimall end of a large branch, and the bear about the middie of it, he fell a taking the bough, crying, Now you fee me teachee the bear dance.

Then turning to us, cried, So we kill bear in my country. So you kill them, faid I, you rogue; why you have no guns. No, fays he, no gun, but thottee great much long arrow. During the reft of this journey we were terribly peftered by the wolves, of which we killed feventy. I, however, arrived fafe at Dover, with all my wealth about me, when I placed the good widow, who had been my fteward, iq eafy circumflances.
Some time after I married, and not knowing how to live without employment, retired into the country to a little fami but in the middle of thi felicity my wife died, leaving e th ee children. By the lofs of my fage counfellor, I became like a thip without a pilot, that could only fail before the wind. One of mnybrother's children I had brought up to the fea, and had given him a fthiip. He was going a voltage to China, and came one morning to afk if I would go with him to fee my beloved island.

The people treated them very civilly, and in exchange for a knife, a hatchet, and fix ol even bullets, gave them eleven men, and five wo men, whomt they had taken prifoners to eat; and they were obliged to hurrv away, or they wou'd lave compellied them to begin their inhuman fear
Before they came to the ifland, they fet eight of their prifoners at liberty. The Spaniards would not marry anyof the women, but eaeh of the Engl hflimen chofe one of them for his wife, and afterwards became more civilized.
They had now another vifit from the favages; they kept clofe while they were in the ifliand; but when they faw them embark, had the curiosity togo to the place where they had been; when, to their furprife, they found three favages left falf afleep upon the ftore. They could not think of killing there naked wretches, and did not want fervants; however, they took them prisoners; but, tjo ortunately, one of them made his efcape, and foot after returned with a large body of his countrymen This fellow had been kept at one of the hats of the honeft Englifhmen, and thele two poor men had but juft time to remove their wives and children before they faw their houfes in flames. On this they retreated, and fent a flave to the Spaniards for help. They however halted at the entrance of a thick wood, when two of the favages running di.

rely towards them, they climbed into a high tree. They now faw three following the two, and five more following at alittle diftence. They let the two firft pafs, and then fired at the three; the firft they killed, and wounded the fecond, who was the fugitive prifoner that had brought all this mifchief upon them. The five behind, tenr ified at the report of the gun, ftood ftill; but the yells and fcreams of their wounded companion brought them all in a huddle about him. Both the Engliflimen now let fly together, and as the five fell down, they thought they had killed them all; and therefore, without charging their pieces, they defcended from the tree, and went boldly to the place, where they found four alive, two of them but very little hurt, and one of them not at all; but they foon put the wounded men out of their pain with the flocks of their mufkets; and then bound the unhurt man hand and foot, and left him.
They then went to the retreat where they had left their wives, and found that the two firft men had been near the place in fearch of them. Here fev'en of the Spaniards came to their affifance, bringing with them the savage whom they had lft bound. Emboldened by this affifftance, they refolved to go in queft of the other favages. They difcoverel that they had attempted to carry off their dead, and foon after they faw them all embark.
About fix months after this, they were invaded




by a molft formidable fleet, twenty-eight canoes full of favages, armed with bows and arrows, great clubs, and wooden words. To oppose this. force, there were feventeen Spaniardi five Engliflimen, old Friday, and fix flares. To arm thefe, they had fixteen mufkets, five piftols, three fowling-pieces, two fords, and three old halberts. To the flaves they gave each a halbert, or a long flaff pointed with iron, and a hatchet. Two of the women would needs fight, and had bows and arrows, and each a hatchet. The old Spaniard, whole life I had faved, commanded, and Will Atkins, one of the three daring Eng l ihmen, commargded under him.
The favages came forward like lons, and Atkins, with fix men, being placed behind a thicket, with orders to let the firl t pars, he offered about fifty to go, and then ordered three of his men to fire their inufkets, which were loaded with fixor even bullets a-piece, among the thickeft of them. How many they kUled they knew not; but the poor wretches feemed frighted to the Liad degree. Then the other three fired, and after them thefirit thi ee in lefs tharn a minute. Had they now retired as they were ordered, it would have been well ; but tflaying to charge again, frome favages at a diflance f- w them, and furrounded thembehind,woundcd Atkins himfelf, and killed an Englifhman, a Spaniard, and a gallant Indian flave, who, with no other weapons but an armed ftaff, and a hatchet, killed five men.

the Spaniards, who had behaved with great gallantry, killing about fifty of their enemies. Atkins, though wounded, Would have had the governor arch and charge them in a body but the Spaniiard replied, Seignior Atkins, let them alone till morning, when they will be ftiffwith their wounds, ard feint with lofs of blood. That's true, Seignior, rq-lied Ackins; but fo fall I too, andthat's the reifcn why I would go while I am warm. Seignior Atkins, returned the Spaniard, you have behaved gallan.ly, and done your part, and therefore we will fight for you. But it being a clear moonlight night, they refolved to fall on them then ; eight of them kt fly amongfit the favages, and then eight nrme; leading and firing as faft as they could. They then ran in three parties among them, and did great execution, killing in the two fights one hundred and eighty. The reft, with nimble feet, got to the fea.fide, whete their canons lay: but they could not embark, for it blew a terrible form, and the next morning the canoes were driven by the fnrge of the fea, fo far upon the fnote, that it required infinite labour to get them off. Will Atkins now advifed the commander to defiroy their canes, and they foon made them unfit for fwimsoig at lea. This made the poor wretches quite deiperae ; they ran about the ifland, pulled my plantaicn at the bower to pieces; trode the coin under foot, and did our men ineftimnable damage, who were forced to hunt them like wild beats.

We had fix pieces of beef, and fourof pork outof the fhip, our punch bowl and materials to fill it; ten bottles of claret, and ten of beer; and the Spaniards roaited five whole kids, fome of which were fent to tur feamen on board. At this feaft we were innocearly merry, and then I produced my cargo, and prefenred the artificers I brought with me. I took on fhore with me the yoang man, whofe mother was flared to death, and the maid, with the French ecclefiallic we had faved out of the burning fhlip. This priest, who was a very worthy man, talking to me one day about my ifland, faid, with great good manners, that I coght to attempt the converien of my savage fubjedis, and to have tl'e women lawfolly married to the men they lived with; I told him I could not itay for the firit, and as to the laft, I would peak to the men about it.

Some time after this, I converfed wi:h my Englif men about their wives, and Will Atkins, as a fpokefman for the reft, faid, that if any man wouli carry him to England, and make him Captain of the beft thip in the navy, he would not go without

Hie told them, that he was afraid they were but indifferent Chriftians ; and unlefs they would pronmife to teacm their wives as well as they could, he woulA not marry them. Lord, Sir, faid Will Atkins, how should we teach them religion ? we know nothing of it ourfelves.

While he was gone, the priet married the other three couple. Will Atkins then came in, and I began to talk with him, and afked him who was his lather ?

Soon after this, having, by my sovereign authority, divided the lands amongft the%, to prevent quarrelling, I left the ifland i but I had not been from it three days, when we discovered a great number of canoes, which came % ery near us, on which we made figns for them to put back, which they did; but difcharged about five hundred arrows at us; and wounded one of our menri being unwilling to fire upon them, I ordered Friday tofpeak to them, when in'itantly they discharged another flight of arrows, that killed poor Friday, no other man being in their fight. Ei aged at the lofs of mny old fervant, I gave them a broad-fide, which overfet many of their canoes, and the rett fled fo fatt, that in a little time there was not one to be teen.

I found that this outrage proceeded from the fellow that was miffing, who enideavoured to he rude to a girl that came to fell them milk. I was unwilling to go and leave the fellow in the hands of there barbarians, and therefore the next night we went on fhore. We landed without any noife, but could not find him we wanted.
