acquaintance, how great things God hath .
-* done for them!' Nay, they are fo affeCed
with fuch eminent appearances of the protect-

fervation, and deliverance, that they are not
willing to confine it to them only, but to pub-
lith it to the world, that the fame of their
God may be spread from fe to fea, and from
oIe gnd of the earth to the other.

: The following relation being large, I hall
eeaoeabor. to be Alort only, fome of the
things which feem to me molt remarkable, I
would. more particularly recommend to the
reader's Qbfervation.
,i. The hearts of all men are in the hands

thefe men.-eaters fury was at height, their
knives in one hand, and the poor thipwreekcd
peoples heads in the other, their knees upon

fudden, the favtges were truck dumb, and
their countenances changed, that they looked
like anoer people ; the Caffekey (or king)
becoming eas a safeguard to the diflreffed,
069m the injuries of his own men: yea, fufa'
confidence put he in them, that he would
truth them to remove the money he had taken
from themselves, before he would truft his
own people. When they were got from thefr

natural to their own aged people; they ha--
ing no more cogipaffion on them, than to
make them flaves to the younger. Yet are
thefe men-eaters as cowardly as cruel, when
the Spaniards came up, the fight of a rufty
mufket presented towards them, would make
several of them fly.

3. The dangers they were delivered from,
arofl not only from men, but the elements
alfo, which God permitted to threaten and
affla them. One time, rowing in their boat,
the fea fwelled fo, that it was dangerous con-
tinuing there all night, and as dangerous to
endeavour for the Ihore; yet Providence fail-
ed them not, but conducted them fate thither,
as though there had been a lane made through
the breakers. Another time, by reason of, a
great flood, they were forced to remove their
lodgings several times, and for divers days
were in a continual apprehension of being
drowned; at length they were preserved on an
oyfier-hill. Not to mention the frequent
dangers they were in, by reason of the ex-
treme cold, too tedious to touch on here ;
wherein this, however is remarkable, that God
can both administer firength in the midft of
weaknefs, and alfo take away strength, and
caufe weaknefs to feize, whenever he pleafes:
Here was an old man, a woman with a fucking

6. Their being forced tomafk themselves
under the natrt of Spaniards, though few of
them-could fpea any Spanifh, was another
hardship; monfly btcaufe the natives often
ffpe&ted them w. be Englilh, and thereby
they were continually in danger of their lives.
Whether their cruelty againstt the Englif
proceeds from their being under no appre-
henrion of danger from them, and fo may
think themselves lawlefs in what they do
against our nation; or whether it proceeds
from any particular difgult offered them by
fome Englih, I hall not determine. However,
it would d *ell, for thofe that are not under
their power, to avoid giving them any jut .
caufe of offence, left their neighbours fuffer
for their faults. One of thefe favages could
complain, That, fome years paf-, he had been
taken off by fome of our Englilh loops,
from whom he eflaped by fwimmtng and
was therewith difgufted, infomuch, that could
he by his lifting have found out that they
were Englifh, it might have proved of ill
confequence to them.

7. The courtesy of the governor of Auguf-
tine, who clothed thefe naked people, fed
their hungry ftomachs, and caused them to be
conduwted -faely to Carolina,. is not to be

iflands; and at length, was returning fror
Jamaica to this town of Philadelphia, whe
thefe calamities, mentioned in the enfuin
Journal, befel him: how he behaved himfe

what faith he overcame even the very wor

upon his spirit, That his prayers were hear
and should in due time be answered, befoq
he was yet off his knees. And doubtlfs, 1
was made a ftrength and a comfort to his con

ipanions in affli&ion, whofe remembrance wil
Snot be easily blotted out of their minds.
-:Ohe remarkable paffage I cannot.wellomit,
which demonstrates he had well learned of him
w who is a God of truth, to fpeak the truth upon
Small occallons, though with the hazard of hit
V life. For, as the reader may obferve in the
serieses of this following relation, there poor
People, for the safeguard of their lives, had
S.ffummed the name of Spaniards; fome on that
Account, affecting what was wrong, others
concealing the truth; yet this honeft-hearted
man, being directly alked the queflion,
Nickaleer, Nickaleer? (their word forEngliflh.
Smen) could do neither; but in simplicity
answered, Yes: Being afked to concerning
another, he again answered, Yes. Yet, though
for his plain dealing, he was ftript of his
clothes, which till then he had faved, God
suffered not thefe favages to touch his life,
or the lives of any of his company.

SThus he palfed through this affliding trial,
and at length arrived at this place on the ift
day of the second month, 1697, though in
much weaknefs, having been taken very ill
of the belly-ach and flux at Auguftint, of
which he never recovered, but fill grew
worfe and worfe to his dying day. It.was
sahout the 8th hour in the evening when the
itrkentine, he was palenger in, arrived-at
'tbi place, and divers friends went on board,
r. A6 in

C xii )
in order to get him afhore; but he being in
a very weak condition, they told not re-
move him at $hat time: He declared his
great farisfadfion that the Lord had granted
his request, that he tight lay down his bones
in this place that hit heart was strong, and
he hoped he might firft fee friends again at
the meeting. He made mention of the
goodaefs of God to him, and that his presence
had attended him in all his exercifes.
The next morning, being the id of the
second month,, divers friends went on board,
to help the veffel up to a wharf, in order to
get him on fAorte in which time he (pake as
before related, God's power attending him.
About the 7th hour, divers friends carried
him in a hammock (being wrapped up in' a
blanket, and clothes to keep him warm) to
the houfe of Samuel Carpenter, where he de-
clared the g6odaefof God to him, and that
his heartwas yet strong, and his memory and
Inderftanditg* godt Aftei with he was Ihift-
ed, and then flept b confid'erabl time.
On the fame day, fome friends coming into
the room to viit him, at the fight of them
he ftemed to rejoice, and putting forth his
hand,!was ready to embrace them in much
oic; nd .in a very render frame of spirit;
The *imeds expreffed their gladnefs to fft
him i Ibt Aid, They were fory to fee hint

j ( xiii )
fo very weak: To which he replied, Al-
Sthough my body be weak, my mind is found,
and memory good. And further faid, The
Lord hath been very good to me, all along
to this very day, and this morning hath
fweetly refreshed me. And further added,
The Lord hath anfwered my defire, for I de-
'fired content, and that I might come to this
place to lay my bones amongft you. And
afterwards faid, It is a good thing to have a
confidence void of offence, both towards God
and towards men.

On the 4th day of the second month, being
Sthe firft day of the week, about the fifth hour
in the morning, he defied a friend to write
for him to his dear wife. To remember his
dear love to her; and to let her know of his'
travels, and being here; and that the Lord
was with him; that his outward affairs were
fettled, and that fhe had wherewithal to
live on. He further faid, divers friends be-
in*,prdefnt,, That the Lord was with him;
Sand all things were well; and that he had
nothing to do but to die: and accordingly
on this day he departed; and on the third day
Following, being the 6th day of the second
month, was buried in friends burying-ground,
in this town of Philadelphia.

SAnd now, having brought my relation,
4 tdamti think good nan, to the laft period

( xiv )
of his life, I might very well have put a
period to my preface: but that I forefee,
fome persons may be ready to fay, Here is an
account of very ftrange paffages, but of what
credit -is the relator ? .may we depend upon
his authority, without danger of being im-
poled upon ? To fuch I anfwer, He is a man
well known in this town, of good credit and
repute; on whofe fidelity.and veracity, rhofe
who have any knowledge of him, will readily
rely, without fufpe&ing fallacy. But, that
in the mouth of two or three wicneffes every
thing may be eftablifhed, besides him and his
wife, a person, whofe residence (when at
home) is in this town, Jofeph Kirle, the
master of the Barkentine, in whichthey fuf-
fered shipwreck, a man of an honest charac-
ter amongft his neighbours, had the perufal
of it before it went to the prefs, and ap-
proved it. 'With which I fall conclude,
wishing my reader much fatisfa&ion in the
leading of it, but never the unhappinefs of
experiencinga in proper perfon,.the truth
of it.

Fletchei commander, we failed from Port-
Royal, in Jamaica, being bound for Penn-
The 24th day. About noon came a floop
from Port-Royal, meeting us off Portland,
and gave an account of the French fleet be-
ing at Cape Antonio.
In the evening we lay by, off Black-River
Mouth, in order to go the next morning to
.lewfields; but it being calm for many days
following, the current drove to the westward
of the ifland.
The 3gft day. This evening we loft fight
of the Hampfhire frigate, and then beat to
windward again.
The ift day of the seventh month, called
September, we anchored to the weftward of
Savannah la Mar, and loft our anchor.
The 2d day. This day we got into Blew-
fields road to water.
The 4th day. This morning we failed
fromBlewfields, intendingour paffage through
the Gulph.
The 14th day. About noon 'we were
abreast with Cape Antonio, and about a
league to the eaftward of the Cape was a
fire making a great fmoke; at length fome
people appeared on the bay, making figns
for us to put on fhore, but having a frelh
gale, and not knowing who they were, our
mater woald not.

ihe -fade day we made the Tableiland of
Hatwmna, and in the evening food over
far iea Fl6rida; but about eight or nine.

where we designed to go and enquire con-
iertiing the French fleet; but in the after,
eoon came a turnado from the land, and
-w maftrr being on the quarter-deck, out
boom jibbing knocked him down and broke
*is.Ceg which accident was grievous to him
and us; but having things lfitable, with a.
little experience, we fet it again. At this rime
I had four of my family very fick, oS
a*hereof was an Indian girl, who, juft as I
tad bound up the matter's leg, was take*

SThe 19th day. This morning the wind
t being fair, we flood up for Cuba, and
out fun-rifing efpied thofe fails that we
before, they ftanding as we food; there-
fore we fuppofed them to be fome of our
tmpany: we wronged them in failing, and
iyloon loft fight of them. About four in
e afternoon we efpied another lhip to the
K' eaft-

( Is )
eafitward.of us (we being about four leagues
off fhore, and about fifteen leagues to the
eastward of the Havanna) and fuppofing her
to be a Frenchman, we flood in for the
thore, but the gained on us: then a turnado
sprang up, and-a great fhower of rain fol-
lowed, which hid us.. Hereupon we tacked
and food over for Florida, and when night
came on, we faw no more of that fail, having
the wind fair.
The aoth day. This morning we were in
the gulph, having a fairwind, and faw again
the two Ihips following-us, which we believ-
ed to be of our company.
The 2ift day. This morning the wind at
caft, and shifting northerly.
The 22d day. This day the form began
at the north-ealt.
The 23d day. About one o'clock in the
morning we felt our veffel ftrike fume few
frokes, and then The floated again for five or
ix minutes, before, fhe ran faif aground,
where the beat vehemently at firft: the wind
was violent, and it'was fo very dark, that our
mariners could fee no land, and the feas
broke over us, fo that we were in a quarter
of an hour floating in the cabin : we then
endeavoured to get a candle lighted, which
in a little time was accompliihe.
, By this time we felt the veffel not to (trike
fo often; but several of her timbers were
broken, and fome plank started, and the feas

S19 )
continued breaking over us, and no land to
be fcen. We concluded to keep in the veffel
as long as The would hold together, and
about the third hour in the morning, we fup-
pofed we faw land at fome considerable
distance at which time we found the water
began to run out of her, and at day-light
perceived we were upon the fhore, on a beach
lying on the breach of the fea, which, at
S times, as the furges revered, was dry. In
taking a view of our veffel, we found that
the violence of the weather had forced many
.forts of fea birds on board of her, fome of
which were, by force of the wind, blown
into and under our hen-coops, and many
remained alive. Our hogs and iheep were
walked away, and fwam on fhore,, except
one of the hogs, which remained in the
We rejoiced at this our preservation from
the raging feas, but at the fame infant feared
the fad consequences that followed; yet,
-having hopes itill, we got our fick and
lame on Jhore, alfo our provisions, with
fpars and fails to make a tent. I went with
one negro to view the land, and feek the
moRt cofivenient place for that purpose; but
,the wildernefs country looked very dismal,
having no trees, but only fand-hills covered
with thrubby palmetto, the talks of which
,were prickly, fo that there was no walking
ainongft them: I at laft efpied a place, al-

( zo )
moft a furlong within the beach, being a
bottom, to which I with my negro, foon cut
a paffage, but the form and rain continued.
Thither 1 got my wife and fick child, who
was but fix months and twelve days old;
alfo Robert Barrow, an aged man, who had
been tick about five or fix months; our
maetr, -who-fome days before had broke his
leg, and my kinsman, Benjamin Allen, who
had been very ill with a violent fever for
moft part of the voyage: there, with others,
we got to the place, under the shelter of
fome few bushes, which broke off the wind,'
but kept none of the rain from them, but I
got a fire made; and the reft of our people
were getting the provisions afhore; but our
chefts, trunks, and clothing, were all very
wet and cold.
About the eighth or ninth hour came two
Indian men (being naked, except a fmall
piece of plaited work of ftraws, which juft
hid their private parts, and faitned behind
like a horfe tail in likenefs, made of a fort
of filk-grafs) from the fouthward running
fiercely, and foaming at the mouth, having
no weapons but their knives, and forthwith,
not making any flop, violently seizedd the
two firft of our men they met with, who
were carrying corn from the veffel to the top
of the bank, where I flood to receive it, and
put it into a calk; they did not ufe them
ill, as the men rcfifted not, but taking them

.( n )
iUtnd the arm, brought theat towards me.
rTheir countenances were very furious and
blixloy; they had their hair tied in a roll
barn in which ftuck two bones shaped,
Sone ike a broad arrow, the other a fpear-
,ed -, and the reft of our men coming from
thbe vcffel, adked me, I What they should do?
whether they should get their guns to kill
Shefe two P But I perfutded them other.
i ie, and desired them to be quiet, fheuiing
SAeir inability to defend us from what would
follow, :bin to put our truth in the Lord, who
wa able to defend to the uttrmoft.
.,L fiher walked towards the place where
or Ack and lame were, (the two Indian
uen following me) and I told them the 'n-
Sdisas were come, and coming upon us; and
-.whilft the two Indians flood with a wild;
;furious countenance, looking upon us, -I
thmight within myfelf to give them fome
tobacco and pipes, which they greedily
fIamtched from mie, and making a fnuffing
t ittfe, like a wild beat, turned their backs
Sqn us, and ran away.
..We communed together, and considered
tlar condition, being among a bcabarous
,people, fuoh as -were generaly'.ccdartted
i en eaters, and believed thefe two were
bgone to alarm their peopl&C' We fat our-

( 22 )
In this deep c6ncernment, fome of .us were
not left without hopes ; bleffed be the name
of the Lord, in whom we trufted.
As we were under a deep exercise and
concernment, a motion arofe from one of
us, that if we Ihould put ourselves under the
denomination of Spaniards (it being known
that that nation had fome influence on them)
and ohe of us, named Solomon Creffon, fpeak-
ing the Spanilh language well, it was hoped
this might be a means for our delivery; to
which, moft of the company affected.
Within two or three hours after the de-
parture of the two Indians, fome of our
people being near the breach or strand, re-
turned and faid, The Indians were coming
Sin a very great number, all running and
Stbouting.' About this time the form was
much abated, the rain ceafed, and the fun
appeared, which had been hid from us several
days; and molt of the Indians went to the
veffel, casting forth whatever they could la)
hold on, except rum, fugar, molaffes, beef
and pork but their Caffekey, (for fo they
call their king) with about thirty more, came
down to us in a furious manner, having a
dismal afpe&, and foaming at the mouth
their weapons were large Spanifh knives,
except their Cafekey's, who had a bayonet
that belonged to the master of our veffel;
they rushed in upon us, and cried Nickaleer,
Nickalcer We understood them not at firft,

I( 3 )
they repeating it to us often, at laft they
:Efpania, or Spaniard. By which we
dczftood them, that at the firft they meat
i lh but they were anfwered to the
ter in Spanilh, Yea; to which they re-
ad, No Efpania, no; but all cried, Nick-
ter Nickaleer: we, fitting on our chefs,
taes, and trunks, and fome on the ground,
e Indians surrounded us, but we ftirred nor
poved not, but fat all, or moft of us, very
fm and ftill, and fome of us in a good
cime of spirit, being freely given up to the
dl of.God. U -. .
Whilft we. were thus fitting as a people
lmoAt unconcerned, there bloody-minded
rtBatures placed themselves each behind one,
ki.king and throwing away the bufhes that
arseigh, or under their feet; the Caffekey
Splaced.himfelf behind me, landing on
cheft which I fat upon, and they all had
r arms, extended, with their knives in
rir hands, ready to execute their bloody
i, ome taking hold of us by the heads,
their knees fet againfl our fhouldcrs
in this pofture they seemed to wait for
CGatkey to begin: thiy were;highk in
,, which, we understood not; btiucion a
n,it plaUi&the Lord to work ioader-
fWage men wereftruck ddmbr and'like
mazed, for the pace of a quarter of an
4,wlaioh. time. their bbuntenance fell,

( 24 )
ad ,they looked like another people. T
then quitted their place. they had taken be-
hind us, and came in amongft us, requiring
to have saltlow.chefit, trunks, and boxes
unlocked, which. being ,dane, thbyfdivided
aU-tiht was in them, Our money theCaffekey
took to himself, privately hiding it in ther
lu&Ch t dhen they went to pulling off out
clothes, leaving each of us only a pair of
breeches, or an old coat, except my wife,
and child, Robert Barrow, and our mafteri
from whom they toakbut:lictethiat day:
having thus done, they afked us again, Nick-
aler, Nickaleer But we anfwered, by lay-
iig, Penfilvania.
, We then began to enquire after St. Auguf-
tine, alfo we would talk of St. Lucia, which
was a town that lay about a degree. w the
northward; but they cunningly would ifce
to persuade us, that they both lay to the
fouthward: ,we ifignified to them, that they
lay to the northward; and:we talked of thi
Harana, that lay to che. ouchward. Theft
places they had heard of, and knew which
iaythbey dy. -
At lrbgsthteCaffekeyold'us, hw'long.i

not to hear us mention St. Augufinte.

SW gave them to underfiand, that w
ame that way, and were for the northward;

frived that the Caffrkey's heart was tendered
' awards us, for he kept mostly with us, a04
Sjid th remaining part of that day keep off
thepetty robbers, who would have had our
ew iags from us. Some time before night
,o had a shower of rain, wn which thp

me leaves to lie upon.
SAbout this time our veffel lay dry on
