wards on foot-to Yarmouth, where, as unfortunate men,
we were used with great humanity, as well by the
magistrates of the town, who assigned us good quarters,
as by particular merchants and owners of ships, and had
money given us sufficient to carry us either to London
or back to Hull, as we thought fi. -
Had I now had the sense to have gone back to Hull,
and have gone home, I had been happy, and my father,
as in our blessed Saviour's parable, had even killed the

fatted calf for me; for hearing the ship I went away in
was cast away in Yarmouth Roads, it was a great while
Before he had any assurances that I was not drowned.
But my ill fate pushed me on now with an obstinacy
that nothing could resist; and though I had several
times loud calls from my reason, and my more com-
- posed judgment, to go home, yet I had no power to do
it. I know not what to call this, nor will I urge that it
is a secret overruling decree that hurries us on to be the
instruments of our own destruction, even though it be
before us, and that we rush upon it with our eyes open.
Certainly, nothing but some such decreed unavoidable
. misery, which it was impossible for me to escape, could
have pushed me forward against the calm reasoning
and persuasions of my most retired thoughts, and
against two such visible instructions as I had met with
in my first attempt.
My comrade, who had helped to harden me before,
and who was the master's son, was now less forward
than I. The first time he spoke to me after we were at
Yarmouth, which was not till two or three days, for we
were separated in the town to several quarters; I say,
the first time he saw me it appeared his tone was
altered; and, looking very melancholy, and shaking his
head, he asked me how I did, and telling his father who
I was, and how I had come this voyage only for a trial,
in order to go farther abroad: his father, turning to me
with a very grave and concerned tone, "Young man,"
says he, you ought never to go to sea any more; you
ought to take this for a plain and visible token that yo
are not to be a seafaring man." "Why, sir," said I,
will you go to sea no more? That is another case,"
said he; "it is my calling, and therefore my duty; but
as you made this voyage for a trial, you see what a taste
Heaven has given you of what you are to expect if you
persist. Perhaps this has all befallen us on your ac-
count, like Jonah in the ship of Tarshish. Pray,"
S continues he, what are you; and on what account did
you go to sea?" Upon that I told him some of my
story; at the end of which he burst out into a strange
kind of passion: What had I done," says he, "that
such an unhappy wretch should come into my ship? I
would not set my foot in the same phip with thee again
for a thousand pounds." This indeed was, as I said, an
excursion of his spirits, which were yet agitated by the
sense of his loss, and was farther than he could -have
authority to go. However, he afterwards talked very



gravely to me, exhorting, me to go back to my father, This was the only voyage which I may say was

father's house,-which hurried me
into the wild and indigested notion of raising my
fortune; and that impressed those conceits so forcibly
upon me, as to make me deaf to all good advice, and
to the entreaties and even the commands of my father;
-I say, the same influence, whatever it was, presented
the most unfortunate of all enterprises to my view;
and I went on board a vessel bound to the coast of
Africa; or, as our sailors vulgarly called it, a voyage to
It was my great misfortune that in all these adven-
tures I did not ship myself as a sailor; when, though I
might indeed have worked little harder than ordinary,
yet at the same time I should have learnt the duty and
office of a fore-mast man, and in time might have
qualified myself for a mate or lieutenant, if not for a
master. But as it was always my fate to choose for the
worse, so I did here; for having money in my pocket
and good clothes upon my back, I would always go on
board in the habit of a gentleman; and so I neither
had any business in the ship, nor learned to do any.
It was my lot first of all to fall into pretty good
company in London, which does not always happen to
such loose and misguided young fellows as I then was;
the devil generally not omitting to lay some snare for
them very early; but it was not so with me. I first got
acquainted with the master of a ship who had been on
the coast of Guinea; and who, having had very good
success there, was resolved to go again. This captain

valleys, though they were upon the rock, they would
n away, as in a terrible fright; but if they were feed-
ing in the valleys, nd I was upon the rocks, they took
no notice of me; from whence I oneludedthat by the
position of their otic, their sight was so direted do
war, that they did not readily see objects that we
above them; so aftenerds, I took this method,-I
always climbed the rock first, to get above them, and
then had frequently fair mark.
The first shot I made among these creators, I killed
he-geoat, which had a little id by her, which she gave
suck to, which grieved me heartily; for, when the old
one fell, the kid stood stock still by her, till I came and
took her up; nod not only so, but when I carried the
old one with me, upon my shoulders, the kid followed
me quite to my inloeuee; upon which, I laid down tihe
dam, and took the kid in my rmn, dcaried it over
my pale in hopes to have bred it up tame; but it
would not eat; so I was forced to kill it, and eat it
myself. These two supplied me with fles a great
while, for I ate sparingly, and saved my provisions, my
bread especially, much as I possibly could.
Having now kxed my habitation, I toud it absolutely
necessary to provide a place to make a fre in, nd fuel
to burn; and what I did for that, and also how I en-
ltgoed my cave, and what couenience I made, I shta
give a full account of in its place ; but I must now give
some little acout of myself,and of my thoughts about
living, which, it may well he supposed, were not a few.
I had a dismal prospet of my condition for, as I was
not cast away upon that islad without being driven, as
is said, by a violent storm, quite out of the ourse of our
intended oyage, nd a great way, vi. some hundreds of
leagues, out oft the ordinary oo eof the trade of man-
kind, I had great e n to consider it aa determination
of H -vea, that in this demlnte plee, nd io this deso-
late manner, I should end mylife. The tears would run
plentifully down my face when I made these refl-
tons and sometimes I would epostulate with myself
why I'e-odcono should tlhus completely rui His crea-
tures, anod reader them so absolutely miserable; so

S.-,, .o o i be thankful for such a
But something always returned swift upon me to
check these thoughts, nd to prove me; and parti-
cularly one day, walking with my gun i my hand by
the a-side, I was very pensive upon the subject of my
present condition, when reason, e it were, expostulated
with me the other way,thnus: "Well, yo are in a deso-
late condition, it is true; but, pray remember, where

Then it occurred to meagain, how well I was furnished
for my subsistence and what would have been my case
if it lad not happened whichh as a hundred thousand
to oe) that the ship floated from the place where she
first struck, and as driven o near to the shore, that I
had time to get all these things outof her; what would
have been my case, if I had been forced to have lived in
the condition in which I at first came on shore, without
necesnires of life, or necessies to supply nd procure
them? "Particularly" mid I aloud (though to myself),
"what should I have done without a gun, without
ammunition, without any tools to make anythingor to
work with, without clothes, bedding. a tent, or aoy
manner of covering? and that now I had all them in
sufficient quantity and w as in a fair way to provide
myself in such a mumner as to live without my gn,
when my ammunition wa spent: so that I had a toler-
able view of subsisting, without any want, as long I
lived; for I considered from the beginning, how I would
provide for the accidents that might Happen, and for the
time that was to come, even not only after my emuni-
ion should be spent, but even after my health and
strength should decay.
I cnfess, I had not entertained any notion of my
ammunition being destroyed at one blst--I mean my
powder being blown up by lightning; and this made
the thoghtsof itso surprising to me, when it lightened
and thundered as I ohbered just now.
And now being to enter itoo a melancholy reltion of
a scene of ilent life, such, perhaps, as was never heard
of in the world before, I shall take it from its begin-
ing, and continue it in its order. It was, by my
accout, the 30th of Beptember, when, in the manner
a above said, I first set foot upon this horrid island;
when the sen, being to us in its atumnal equinox, wa
almost just over my head: for Ireckoned myself, by
observation, to be in the latitude of nine degrees twenty-
two minutes north of the line.
After I bad been there about ten or twelve days, it
came into my thoughts that I should los myreckonino
of time for want of books, and pen andink, and should
even forget the Sabhath days; but to prevent this, I cut
with my knife upon a largo post in capital letter, and

mahng it into a great co, I set up on the shore where
I first landed, 1 came on shore here on the 30th of
September, 1659."
pn the side of this square post I ncut ever day a
notch with my knife, and every seventh notch wneem
long again the rest, and every frst day of the month,
as long again as that long one; and thus I kpt my
calendar, or weekly, monthly, and yearly reckoning of
In the next place, we are to observe that among the
many things which I brought out of the ship, in the
several voyages, which, as above mentioned, I made to
it, I got several tlingp of less value, but not at all less
useful to me, which I omitted setting down before; as,
in particular, pens, ink, and paper ; several parcels iu
the captaiu's, mte', gunner's, and carpenter' keeping;
three or four ompeosee, some mathematical instru.
ments, dials, pepetive, charts, and books of navig-
tion; all which huddled together, whether I might
want them or no: also, I found th-e very god Bibles,
which came to me in my crge from England, and which
I hbad packed up among my things; some Portuguese
books also; and, among them, two eo three Popish
praye-book, and several other books, all which I care-.
luUy secured. And I must not forget, that we had in
the ship adog, and two cats, of hose eminent history
I may have occasion toy somethingin its place; for
I carried both the ats witl me; and for the dog, he
jumped out of the ship of himself, ad swam on shore
to me the dlayafter I went on shore with my first cargo,
and w a trusty servnt to me many years; I wanted
nothing that he could fetch me, nor any company that
he could make up to me; I only wanted to lave him
talk to me, but that would not do. As I observed
before, I found pens, ink, and paper, and I husbnded
them to the utmost; and I shall show that whilo my
ink lasted. I kept tholgs very enact, but after that was
gone coIuld not, for I could not make any ink by any
means tht I could devise.
And this pnd tis in d that I wanted many things,
notwithstamling all that I had aomaed together ; and
of thee, ink was one; as als a spade, pick-axe, and
lIovel, to dig or remove the rth ; needles, pi, ad
thread: as for linen, I soon learned to wnt that without
much difficulty
This want of tools made every work I did go on
h avily; and it was near a whole year before I had
antiely finished my little pale, or surrounded my habi-
tation. The piles or stake which were as heavy as I
could well lift, were a long time in cutting and pre-
paring in the woods,,nd more, by faro brintnng home ;
sO that I spent sometimes two days in euttLn and
bringing home one of those posts, and a tlird day in
driving it into the ground ; for which purpose, I got a
heavy piece of wood at first, but at last bethought
.ynif of one of the iron crows; which, honeo.r,
though I foind it, made driving those posts or piles
verylabotious and tdious work. Bt hat need I have
been concerned at the tediousness of anything I had to
do, seeing I bad time enough to do it in nor hnd I alny
other employment, if that hMi been over, at least that
I could foresee, except the ranging tile island to seek for
food, which I did, more or l, every day.
I now began to consider seriously my ondition,and
the circumstances I was reduced to; and I drew up the
state of my affairs in citing, not s much to leave
them to any that were to come after me-for I was
likely to have but few heirs-en to deliver my thoughts
from daily poring upon them, and affliting my mind:
and m my asou began now to mater my depondeney,
I.began to comfort myself as ell as I could, and to set
thegood against the evil, that I might have something
to distinguish my case from worse; and I stated very
impaytially, like debtor and creditor, the comfort I
en.oyod against the miseries I suffered, thus --

Upon the whole, here was an undoobted testimony,
that there was scace ay condition in the world e
miserable but there was meeting negative or nome-
thing positive to be thankful for in it; and let this
stand as n direction, from the experience of the most
miserable of all conditions in this world: that we may
always bind a it something to comfort onrelves from,
and to et, in the description of good and evil, on the
crdit side of the account.
Having no brought my mind a little to relish my
condition,ad given over looking out to toee f I
could spy a chip-I say, giving over these things, I began
to apply myself to arrange my way of vingand to
make things e easy to me as I uld.
I have alre-ly described my habitation, which wa a
tent under the side of a rock, surrounded with a strong
paleof posts nd cables; but I might now thermal it
wall, for I raised a kind of wall up against it of turf*,
about two feet thick on the outside; and after some
time (I think it was year and a half) r ised rafters
from it, leaning to the rock, and thatched or covered it
with boughs of trees, nud such tling as I could get, to
keep out the rain; which I found at some times of the.
year very violent.
I have already observed how I brought all my goods
into this pale, and into the cve which I had made be-
hind me. But I must observe, too, that a t t this wa
a confused heap of goods, which,as they lay in no order,
o they took up all my place; I had no room to tu
myself: soI set myslf to enlarge my ve n d work
farther into the earth for it was a oo sandy rock,
which yielded easily to tlo labor I bestowedon it: and
so when I found I wa pretty safe as to beasts of
prey,I worked sideways, to the right hand, into the
rock; and then,turning to the rightagain, worked qite
out, and mo de me a door to come out on the ouide of
my pale rfortifiation. This gave me not only egreo and
regress, as it ewas a back way to my tent and to my
storemouse, but gave me oom to store my goods.
And now I began to apply myself to make such
neessary things as I found I nost wanted, prtieuiarly
a chair and a table; for without these I was not able to
enjoy the few mm-fort, I had in the world; I could not
write or eat, or do several things, with so much pleasure
without a table: so I went towork. And bere I must
nrels o.brve, that as reason is the substance and origin
of the mathematics, so by stating and squaring every-
thing by reason, and by nking the most ratiol judg-
ent of things, every man may be, in time, master of
every mehanicart. Ilad never hndlodatoulinmy
life; and yet, in time, by labour, application, and cn-
trivee, I found, at last, that I wanted nothing but I
could have made it, especially if I had bad tools.
However, I made abundance of things, even without
tools; and some withno more tools th an nade and a
hatchet, which perhaps werenever made that way before,
and that with infinite labour. For example, if Iwanted
a board, I' had no other way but to cut down tree, set
it on an edge before me, and he it flat on either side
with myae, till I had brought it to be thin as plank,
anod then dub it smooth with my ade. It istrue,by this
method I would make but one bard out of a whole tee;
but this I had no remedy for but patience, any more
than I had for the prodigious deal of time and labour
which ittook me up to make a plank or bea: butm
time or labour was little worth, and to it was a w
employed one way n another.
However, I made me a tableand chair, as I observed
bove, in the first place; and this I did oet of the short
pieces ofboards thatlbrought on my raft fromthe ship.
But when I had wrought some beards a above, I
made large shelves, of the breadth of a foot nds half,
one over another all alog one side of my cave, tolay all
my ools, nails, and iron-work on; and, in a word, to
separate everything at large into their place, that I
moght come rsdly at them. I knocked pieces into the
wall of the rock to hang my gns and all things that
would hanup: so-tht, had my cave been to been,
it loked mie-a general magazine of all neceary tng

N.B.-I took such care of it that it lived, and the
leg grew well and a strong a ever; hut, by my
nursing it long, it grew tame, and fed upon the
little green at my door, and would not go away. This
was the first time that I entertained a thought of
breeding up some tame creatures, that I might have
food when my powder and shot was all spent.
Dc. 28, 2, 31.-Gret heats, nd no breeze, so
thatthere was no stirring abroad, e pt in the evening,

January l.--Very hot still: but I went abroad early
,d late with my gun, ud lay stillin the middle of the
day. This evening, going farther into the valleys which
lay towards the centre of the island, I found there were
plenty of goats, though eeeedmgly shy, and hard to
come at; however, I resolved totryif I could not bring
mny dog to hunt them down.
Jan,. f.-Accordingly, the next day I went out with
my do, and set him upon the goats; but I was ms-
tUiaen,fo they all faced about upon the dog, and
he knew his danger too well, for he would not come
toar them.
J,r. 3.-I began my fence, or wall; which, being still
jealous of my being attacked by somebody, I resolved
to make very thick and strong.
N.B.-This wall being described before, I purposely
omit wlat was said in the journal; it is sufficient to
oluerve, that I was no le.s time than from the 3rd of
Jauouaty to the 14th of Apnl working, fiishiug, andl
".grfecting this wall, though it was no moro thn aoboutm
twenty-four yards in length, being a halftciloe, fram
e.. place in the rock to other place, about eight
yids from it, the door of the cave bein in the centre
bchbin it.
All this time I worked very hard, the rains hindering
me many days, nay, sometimes weeks together; but I
thought I should never be perfectly secure till this wall
was finished; and it is sre credible ;hat inexpresi-
bl lboleur everything was done with. especially the
bringing piles out of the wods, and driving them into
the ground; for I made them much bigger than I
need to have done.
heno this wall was finished, and the outside double-
fenced, with a turf wall raid up close to it, I persuaded
myself tat if any people were to o on shore there,
they would not pereeive anything like a habitation ; and
it was vry well I did so, as may be observed hereafter,
upon a very remarkable sion.
During this time I made my rounds in the oods for
game every day when the rain permitted me, and made
frequent discoveries in these walks of something or
other to my advantage; particularly, I found a kind of
wild pigeons, which build, not wood-pigeos in a ttee
but rather as house-pigeons, in the boles of the rouks
and taking some young ones, I endeavored to breed
them up tame, and did so; but when they grew oldei
they flew away, which perha was at first for want Oi
feeding them, for I had nothing to give them; however
I frequently found their nests, and got their young
ones, which we very good meat. And now, in th,
managing my household affairs, I found myself wantiog
in many things, which I thought at first it as impos-
sible for me to make; as, indeed, with some of them i
was: ,for intance, I could never make a cask to t
hoped. I had a small runlet or two, as I observed
before; but I would never arrive at the cpacity ol
making one by them, though I spent many weeks about
it; Iould neitherput in the headsnor join thoestaes
true to one another as to make them hold water; so I
ve that also over. In the next place, I w at a great
loss for candles; so that a sooo as ever it was dark
which was generally by seven o'clock, I a obliged tU
go to bed. I remembered the lump of bes-wa witd
which I made caules in myAfrian adventure; but h
lad none of that now ; the only remedy I had was, tha
wln I had killed a goat saved th tallow,and witl
a little dish made of clay, which I baked in the sn, tu
which I added a wick of some oakum, I made me I
mp; kd this gave me light,though not a u ear stead
light like a candle. In the middle of all my labour ii
lt.ppened that, rummagiog my things, I found a littl
ling, which, as I hinted before, had ben filled with cor
for the feeding of poultry-not for this voyage, bh
before, as I suppose, when the hip eame from isbon
The little remainder of orm that had been in the bt
was all devoured by the rats, and I sa noting in th
bag but husks and dust; and being willing to have th<
bag for some other use (I think it was to put powde
iu, hen I divided itfor frar of the lightning, or som,
acl ue), I shok the husks of corn out of it on on
side of my fortifiation, under the rock.
It was a little before the great amis just now men

tioned that I threw this stu away, taking no note,
and not much as remembering that I had thrown
anything there, when, about a month after, or there-
abouts, I saw some few stalks of something green
shooting out of the ground, which I fancied might be
some plant I had not seen; but I as surprised, nd
perfectly astonished, when, after a little longer time, I
saw about ten or twelve ers come out, which wer
perfect green barley, of the same kind as oor European
-nay, as or English barley.
It is impossible to express the astonishment and con-
fusion of my thoughts on this occasio. I had hitherto
actd upon no religious foundation at all; ideed, I i ha
very few notions of religion in my head, nor had
entertained any senseof anythingthat had befallen me,
otherwise than as chance, or, as we lightly say, what
plass God without so much inquiring into the end
of Providenc in these things,or Hisrder in governing
events for the world. But after I sa barley grow
there, in a climate which I knew was not proper for
orn, and especially that I knew not how itam e there,
it startled me strangely, and I began to suggest that
God had miraculously used His grain togrow without
any help of seed sown, and that it as so directed
puly for my sutenan on that ild, miserable place.
This touched my heart a little, and bought tears out
of my eyes, and I began to bless myself that such a
digy of nature should happen upon my aunt; and
is was the more strange to me, because I saw near it
ill, all along by the side of the rock, sme other
sggling stalks, which proved to be stalks of rioe, and
ich I knew, ecaue I had seen it grow in Africa;
when I wasasho thCr.
I not only thought these the pure productions of
providence for my support, hut, not doubtingthat thelr
w more in the ple, I went all over that part of the
island whe I had been before, peering in every corner,
and under every ro, to se for mor of it, but I could
uot find ny. At last it ocurred to my thoughts, that
I shook a ag of chickens' meat out in that place; and
then the wonder began to ceose; and I must coafess,
my religious thankfulnes to God's providence began
to abate, too, upon the discovering that all this was
nothing but wha common: though I ought to have
been as thankful for so strange and unforeseen a prvi-
dece, as if it had been miraculous; for it was really
the work of Providence to me, that should order or
appoint that ten or twelve grains of o should remain
unspoiled, when the r-ts ld detrayed all the rest, as
if it had been droppedfrom hen; as also that I should
throw it out in that partieula place, here, it being in
the shade of a high rock, it spmg up immediately;
where, if I had thrown it anywhe else, that time,
it had been burnt up and destroyed.
I carefully saved the ears of this corn, you may be
sure, in their season, which was about the end of June;
laying up every orm, resolved to sow them all
gain, hoping, in time, to have s-me quantity, suficint
to uply me with broad. But it was not till the fourth
your tht I could allow myself the least grain of this
wm to eat, and eve then but sparing, I shall ay
ftrwards,in its order; forI lost all that I sowedth
trt season, by not observing the proper time; for I
sowed it jut before the dry season, so that it never
e up at all, at least not as it would have done; of
whch in its plae.
SBsides th barley, there wer, as above, twenty or
thirty stalks of rice, which I preserved with the same

S ut to retrntomyJournal :-
I worked exsively hard thee three or four months,
to getmy wall done; and the 14th of April I dosed it
p,ontriving to gointo it,notby a door,bt ovr the
wall, by a ladder, that there might be no sign on the
outside of my habitation.
April -1 finished th ladder; so I went up the
ladur to the top,and then pulled it up after me, and
lt itdown inthe inside. Thiswa complete inlore
to me; for within I had oom enough, and nothing
Should cme at me from without, unless it could first
mount my wall.
SThe very next day after this wall was finished, I had
almost had all my labour overthrown at once, and
myself killed. The case was thus:--As I wasbusyin
the insid, behind my tent, just at the entrance into my
cave, I was terribly frighted with a most dreadful
surprising thing indeed; for, all on a sudden, I found
the earth come crumbling down from the mroof of my
t cave, and from the edge of the hill over my head, and
.two of the posts I had set np in the cave ucked in a
frightful manner. I was heartily scared; but thought
nothing of what was really the cause, only thinking
thatthtthetopof my cve was fallenin,aome of it had
done before: and for fear I hold eburin it, I
forward to my ladder, and not thinking myself safe
Sther neither, I got over my wall for fear of the pieces
of the hill, which I expected might roll dow upon me.
I had no sooner stepped down upon the firm ground,


than I plainly sawmt u a terobleo earthquake; for the
ground I stood o shook three times at about Wigt
minutes' distance, with three such shocks a wold hieB
overturned the s gt building that could b pped
o have stood other earth ; d a great pie of the top
of a k which stood about half a mile from me aset
the a fell down, with och a terrible noiae s I never
heard in all my life. I perceived al theve w
put into violent motion by it; and I believe the shoch
ere stronger mderth water than on the island.
I wa so much amazed with the thing itself, having
never felt the like, nor dioursed with any one that
had, that I was like one dead or tnpefied; and the
motion of the erth made my stomach sick, lke one
that- atossedat ma; but the noise of thefalling of
the rock awaked me, as it were, and rousig me from
the stupefied condition I was in, filled me with horror;
adlIthoughtofnothilngthanbuttheill falling ponmy
tent and all my household gods, ad buryg a t once;
and this unk my ry soul within me a s n-d t fme.
After the third shock was over, and I felt nomor f
some time,Ibegan totake outrage; and yet I had not
heart enough to go over my wall again, for fear of being
buried alive, but sat still upon the ground greatly e.t1
down and disconlat, not knowing what to do. All
this while, I had not the least serious religious thought;
nothing bt the common Lord, have mery upon me!"
and when it wan over, that went away too.
While I sat thus, I found the ai overtast, and grow
cloudy, as if it would rain. Soon after that, the wind
arose by littlittle, so that in less than half an
hour it blew a mow t dreadful hurricane, the sea was all
on a sudden covered over with foam and froth; the
shore was covered with the breach of the water; the
trees were tom up by the roots; and a terrible storm it
was. This held about three hours, and tlen beganto
abute: and in two hours more itwasquite calm, nd
began to rain very bard. All this whileI t upon the
ground, very much terrified and dejected; when on a
sudden it cam into my thoughts, that these winds and'
rain being the coasequenes of the earthquake, the
earthquake itself wam spent and over, and I might
venture into my ve again. With thi thought, my
spirits began to revive; and the rain alm helping to
persuade me, I went in and at down in my tent ut
the rain was o violent, that my tent ws ready to be
beaten down with it; and Ias forced to go ito my
cave, though very much afraid d anuneasy, for fear it
should fall on my head. This violent rain forced me to
a new wor viz. to ct a hole through mynew fortifica-
tion, lik a ik,to let the water go out, which would
else have flooded my ave. other I had been in my
tavo for some time, and found still no more shocbs of
the earthquake follow, I began to be mo composed.
oud now, to support my spirits, which indeed wanted
it ry much, I went to my itttle store, and took a small
sup of rum; which, hower, I didthen and always very
sparingly, knowing I would have no more when thatwa
gone. It continued raining all that night, and great
part of the next day, so that I could not tir abroad:
but my mind being more imposed, I began to think o
what I had best do; concluding, that if the island was
subject to these earthquakes, there would be no iving
for me in cav., but I must onasidr of building ltte
but in an open place, wch I h t lg nd with a ''
sI had done here, aoud makemysfsecuefom ld
hearts or men for I nicluded if I stayed where I was,
I should certainly, one time or other, be bured aleve,
With these thoughts, Ireolved to remove my tent
from the place where it stood, which wa just under the
hangig precipice of the hill; and which, if it should be
shaken again, would certainly fall upon my tent; and
spent the two next days, being the 19th and BOth '
April, in contriving where and bow to remove my hntbl- '
taotion. The fear of being awallowed op ali mde me
that I never slept in quiet; and yet the apprehension of
lying abroad without any fence was almost equal to it;
but still, when I looked about, and aw how etrything
was put in order, how pleasantly cocealed I wa, ad
howm sae from dauer, it made me very loath to rem e.
In the mean time, it occurred to me tht it would re-
quire a vast deul of time for me do this, and that I
must be ontented to venture where I was, till I had
formed a mpfor myself, d had secumed itsoo to
remove to it. So with this resolution I composed my-
lf for a tim, and relied that I wouldgotoork with
all sped to builldme a. it with pile and cabls., ., tin
a crle, s before, nd set up my tent in it, when it was
finished; butthat I would venture to stay where I was
till itt to remove. hThs was the 21t

But it was rather exclamtion, suh as, "Lord, what
mistableral rcnu m I! If I should be sic, I hall
certainly die for wmnt of help; and what will become of
me" Then theaters burst out of my eyes, and I
oouldynomore fora good while. In thm interval
the good advice of my father came to my mind, and
presently his prediction, which I mentioned at the
beginning of this story, vi. that if I did take this
foolish step God would not bless me, and I would have
leis.ur herftor to reflect pon having neglected hi
monel, when there might he none to sist in my
rovory. "NoW," said I aloud, "my dear father's
words are come to pass; God's jsti has overtek
me, rod I haeo none to hlp or hear me. I rejected
the voice of Providence, which had meriflly put me
in a poture or station of life whrin I might haver
been happy adeay; but I would neith see itmyself,
nor learn to know the being of it frommy parents.
I leftthine to mou over my folly, and now I am left
to mourn odr the consequence of it. Irefused thoi
help and distance, who would have lifted me in the
world, and would have made everything ay to me;
and now I have difcultiet to struggle with, too gret
for even nature itself to support, and no aistan, no
telp, no comfort, no advie." Then I cried out, "Lor
be my help, or I am in great distress This was the first
prayer, if I y call itso, that I had made for many years.
But to returnto my Journal:-
JuA, 28.-Having been somewhat refreshed with the
slp I had had, and the fit being entirely off I got up;
and though the fright and terror of my dream was
very greot, yet I oidered that the fit of the oague
would turn again the next day, and now o my time
to get something to refresh and support myself when
Should be ill and the first thing I did, I filled a large
square aembotte with moter, and set it upon my tble,
in rachof my bed; and ot take off the chill or aguish
disp ition of the ter, I put bout a quarter of a pint
ofm into it, and mixed them together. Then I got
me a piece of the goat's flesh, and broiled it on the
coals, but could eat very little. I walked about, but
was very weak, and withal very sad and heaoy-hearted
under a sense of my miserable condition, dreading the
return of my distemper the next day. At night, I
made my supper of three of the turtle's eggs, which
I mted in the ashes, d t, we it, in the shell,
and this was the first it of meat I had evr asked
God's bl inmg to, that I could remember, in my whole
life. After I had eaten, I tried to walk, but found
myslf so weak, that I could hardly carry a gun, for
I never went out without that; o I went but a little
way, ad sat do upon the ground, looking out upon
the sea, which as just before me, and very clm and
smooth. As I st here, some such thoughts asoothese
occurred to meW:--hat is this earth and sem of which
Have seen so much? When isitproduced? And
what am I, and all th th their creatures, wild and tame,
humanandbrutal? When orweo ? Surewe reall
made by some secret power, who formed the earth and
sea, the air and sky. Ad who is that? Then it
followed most naturally, it is God that h made all.
Well, but then, it me on strangely, if God has made
all these things Heguidehi and governs them all, and
al things that conrm them for the power that would
make l things, must certainly have power to guide
and direct them. If so, nothing can happen in the
great ircuit of His works, either without His knowledge
or appointment.
And i nothing happens without His knowledge. He
knows that I am here nd m in this dredful condition;
and if nothing happens without His appointmet, He
has appointed a thisto befall me. Nothing erred to
my thought to mconth ict any of these onclion, and
therefore it rested upon me with grater force, that
it must needs be that God had appointed all this to
befall me; that I wa brought into this miserable cir
cugrmatem by His direorteon, He havintog the sole power,
not ofme oyhutofeverythingthat hapo t
world. I ediatey rit oowd,-Why h Goddone
thistome? Wht haveIdone to be thmused? My
conscience presently checked me in that inquiry, as if I
had blasphemed, and methougt it spoke to me like a
voico-"Wretch! dostthou mho what thou hast done?
k hback upon a dreadful misspent lif, and ask thy-
self what thou hast ot dane ? Ak, why is it thatthou
wert not long ago destroyed? Why wermt thou not
drowned in Yarmouth Bolds; killed in the fight when
the ship wa taken by the Salee man of war; devoured
by the wildbeastson the ot of ria; or drowned
e, whe an theew perished but toyself D? tMtyu
sk, What have I done? I was struck dumb with
these reflection, one astonished, and hd not a wod
to say,-no, not to answer to myel, t roe up pensive
and sad, and walked hack to my reteat, nd t up
over my wall, if I had been going to bed; bt my
thought were oadly disturbed, and I had no inclination
too eosl ; s I Bat down in my chair, od lighted my
lmp for it ba tob dr No, tho ppral'he
sion of the return of my distemper terrifed me vmy
much, it otenred to my thought, that the Branlian
take no physic but their tohembacco for almost ao dlstem-

pr, and I had a piee of a rol of tobacco in one of
the hests, whih was quit cured, and some also that
was gen, and not quite cured.
I went, directed by Hoarn no doubt; for in this
hest I found a cur both for oul ao d body. I opened
the chest, and found what I looked for, the tobacco;
and as the few books I had saved lhey there too, I took
out one of the Bibles rhich 1 mentioned before, rod
which to this time I had notfound leisure r ilintio
to look into. I say, I took it out, and brought both
that and the tbao withmetothe tabl. hat use to
make of the tobho I knew not, in my distemper, or
whether it was good for it orno: but I triedseral
eperments with it, as if I was resolved it should
hit one way or other. I rsttook a piece of leaf, d
chewed it in my mouth, which indeed, at rt almost
stupefed my brain, the tobacco being green d stron,
ano that I had not been much used to. Then I tooe
some and steeped it an hour or two in some rum, and
rolled to tote a dose of it when Ilay down: and,
astly, I burnt some upon a pan of coals, and held my
nose o over the smoke of it m log a I could bear
it, o well for the heat, os almost for suffo tion. In
the interval of this operation, I took up the Bible, rd
began to read; but my head was too much disrobed
with the tobacco to ear reading, at least t that time ;
only, having opened the book usually, the first words
that occurred to me wer these, "Cal on me in the day
of trouble,and Iwill deliver the, and thou sh lt rify
me" Thee words were very apt tomy c, 'd mle
some impression upon my thoughts at the time of read-
tog them, though not so much or they did afteorards;
for, a for being ddlied, the word had no found, as I
may say, to me ; the thigh was so remote, so impossible
in my apprehenson of things, that I hgan to ry.,the
children of Israel did when they were promised i sh to
eat,"Can God spread a table in the wilderne ?" o I
hegan to y, "Can God hielf deliver me from this
pola?" Andoasitwas notfor m y yr that hopes
appeared, this prevaoiled very often upon my thoughts;
but, however, the words made a great impression upon
me, and I mused upon them very often. It grew ow
late, d the tobacco had, s I mid, dazed my head o
muoh tht indinedtosleep; soIleft mylamp burning
hi the ve, lest I should want anything in toe night,
and w t tobed. Butbefor I lay dow, I did what I
ne0v had done in all my life-I kneeled daon and
prayed to God to fil the promise to me, that if I called
upon him in the day of trouble, he would deliver me.
After my broken and imperfect pyer was oer, I
dr nte in hio h I had stmped too toahoo, whih
w so stog ad rank f the toaco that I could arel
get it don; immediately upon this I went to bed,
ond presently it flew up into my head iolently; buot
I fell into a sound leep,and waked no more till, by
the sun, it must necssatriy be near three o'clock i the
afternoon of the next day-r y, to this hour I am partly
of opinion that I lept all the next day and night, and
till almost three the day after; for otherwise, I know
not how would lo e a day out of my reckoning i the
days of the w it appeared o years after I had
done; for if I had lt it by rising and recrossing the
Line, I should have lost mom timn one day; but cr-
tainly I loeta day in my account, and never knew which
way. Be that, horeer, on u y or the other, when
I awaked I found myself exceedigly refreshed, and
my spirits lively and cheerful; when I got up Iwra
stronger than I was the day before, and my stomach
better, for I washungry; d, in short I had nofit the
next day, but continued mouh altered for the better.
This ws the 29th
The 30th as my well day, of course, and I wet
abhrod with my gun, but did not care to travel too far.
I killed asea-fowlrtwo, something like a brand goo,
and brought them home; but was not very forward to
eat them; o I eat some more of the trtle's eggs,
which were y good. This. reining I renewed the
medicine, which I had supposed did me good the day
befor-the tobacco stped in rum; only I did nottake
so muh oa before, nor did I chew any of the leaf, or
hold my head over the moe however, I ws not so
well the next day, whih was the firt of July, as I
hoped I should hve been; forI hd a little spice of the
old fit, but it a not muoh.
Jul 2.-I renewed the medicine all the three wyr;
and dsed myself with it as at first, and doubled the
qmatiy which I drank.h
July 3-I mIsed the fit for good and al though I
did not rover my full strength for ome weeks after.
Whi w I wa thus gathering stregth my thoughts ran
exceedingly opon tis Seripte, "I wilt deliver thee ";

both my sorrows and my joys; my very desire aled
my affections changed their gusts,and my delights sre
perfectly new from what they were at my first coming,
or, indeed, for the two years past.
Before, as I walked about, either on my hunting, of
for viewing the coutry, the anguish of my soul at my
condition would break out uponme on a sudde,and my
try heart would die within me, to think of the woods,
the mountains, the deserts I aaas mi, and how I was a
prisoner locked up with the eternal be and bolts of
the ocean, in an uninhabited wildeess, without re-
demption. In the midst of the goeatst composer of
my mind, this would break out upon me like a rtom,
and make me wring my hands and weep liHe a child.
Sometimes it would taeme in the middle of my work,
and I would immediately sit down and sigh, and loo
upon the ground for an hour or two together; and this
was still worse to me, for ifI could burt out to tear,
or vent myself by words, it would go off, and the grief,
having exausted itself, would abate.
But now I began to exercise myself with new
thoughts: Idaily read the Word of God, and applied all
the comforts of itto my preut atate. One moving
being very sad, I opened the Bible upon thee words I
will never, never leave thee, nor foake thee." Im-
mediately it occurred that these words were to me;
why else should they be directed ina such manner just
at the moment during ovhenmy onenditiomi
as one foraken of God d man "Wel, then," id
I, If God does not forsake me, of what ill consequence
an it be,or what matters it, though the world should
all forsake me, seeig on the other hand, if I had all the
world, a d should los the favour and hbising of God,
there would be no com ri in the loss?"
From this moment, I began to conclude my mind,
that it w possible for me to be mo happy in this for-
saken, solitary mndition, than it was pobable I should
ever have been in any other particular state in the
world; and with this thought I was going togie thanks
to God for bringing me to this place. I know not what
it was, but something shohced my ind at that thought,
od I durst not speak the words. How canet thou be-
omesuchaypocrite," said I, even audibly," to ptemd

Godfor being there, yet I sinerely gave thanks to God
for opening my eyes, by whatever affiiting proidene,
to see the former onditi of my life, ad to mon
for my wickedness, ead repent. I neer opened the
Bible, or shut it, but my very soul within me blessed
God for directing my friend England, without my
order of mine, to pack it up among my goods,and f
assisting me afterwardto sae it out of the wreck of
the ship.

of going out with gun, I had one bo, to make

Sthe water to it, I wa obliged to let

wiser the next time: indeed, the next time, though I
could not get a tree proper for it, and was in a place
where I could not get the water to it at ay less
distance than, as I have aid, near half a mile, yet, a I
saw it was practicable at last, I never gave it over; and
though I was near two years about it, yet I ner
grudged my labour, in hopes of having a boat to go off
to e at lat.
However, though my little perdguo was finished, et
the sle of it wa not t all ansrable to the design
which I had in view when I made the first; I mean of
venturing over to the trrt firm, where it wam above
forty mtile brod ; a~oerdingly, the smallness of my bot
aisted to put an end to that dig, andnow I thought
no moreof i As I had a boat my next deig was to
make a cruie round the island; for a I hadbeen on
the other side in on place, crssin, as I hae already
decibed it, over the land, so the distovetiet I made in
that little ]o ey made me vereager to see other
parts of the coast; and no I had a boat,I thought of
nothing but sailing roud the island.
For this purpose, that I might do everything with
discretion and conideratio, I fitted up a little mat in
my bot, nd made a l tooout of otof the piees
of the ship's sails which lay in store, d of which I had
a great stoeek by me. Having fitted my mat ad ail,
and tried the boat, Ifound she would sail very well
then I made little locker, or boxes, at each endof my
boat, to put provisions, n, er ammunition, c.,
into, to be kept dry, either from rain or the spray of
the sea; ad a little, long, hollo place I cut in the
inside of the bott, where I could lay my gun, making a
lap to lmg down over it, to keep it dry.
I fixed my oumbla also in a step at the site, like a
mat, to stand over my head, ad keep the heat of the
sun off me, like an awning; and thus I every now and
tlen took a httle voyage upon the sea: but never went
fet out, not far from the little creek. At last, being
eager to view the circumfereno of my little kingdom,
Ireved upon my cruise; o, d cotrdoily I victualled
my ship for the voyage, putting in two doen of lof-a
(ckes I shouldrather call them) of harley read, an
earthen pot full of parched rice (a food I ate a great
deal of), a little bottle of rum, half a goat, ad powder
ad shot for killing more, and two large tch-oats,
of those which, l I mentioned before, I had sed out

on this voyage, and I fod it much longer than I -
pect; for though the island itself as not very

great ledge of rocks lie out about two league into the
sea, some above water, some under it; and beyond that
a shoal of sand, lying dry half league mor, s that I
was obliged to go a great way ot to sea to double the
When first I discovered them, I was going to give

hoe far it might oblige me to go out to ea ad, abov
all, doubting how I should get back again: so I came to
an anchor; for I had made a kind of an anchor with
a piece of a broken grappling which I got out of
tile ship.
Having secured my boat, I taok my gun and wmt
on shore, climbing up a liIll, which seemed to overlook
that point where I a the full extent of it, and
resolved to centre.

I not got first upon thishiill, I believe it would hare
been so; for there wa the me current on the other
aide the island, only that it et off at a frtr distance,
and I a there as a strong eddy under the ehore; so
I had nothing to do but to get out of the frit current,
and I should pr ntly be in an eddy.
I lay here, however, two days, became the wind
blowing pretty freh at ES.E ad that being jast con-
trary to the current, made a great branch of the sea

upon the point; ao that it was not safe for me to keep
too lowe to the laore for the booth, nor to go too for
off, because of the stream.
The third day, in the morning, the wnd having bated
overnight, the was calm, and I ventured: but I am
a warning to all ash and ignorant pilot; for no sooner
wa I ometo the point, when I a nt even my boat'
length from the shore, but I fond myself in a great
depth of water, and a current like the uic of a mill:
it carried my boat along with it with th violence that
all I could do could not keep her O moch on the
edge of it; but I found it harried me farther and
far fthroot he eddy, which as on my left and.
There was nownd stirring to help me,and all I could
do with my paddles signified nothing: and now I be-
gan to give myself over for lost for as the current

distance they must join again, and then I ta irrecover-
ably gone; or did I ee any possibility of avoidingit;
that I hd no prospect before me but of perishig,
not by the sea, for that ws calm enugh, but of steting
from haunger. I had, indeed, found a tortoise on the
hore, as big almost a I could lift, ad had tossed it into
the bat; ad I hod a gteat jot of freh totr, tht isto

And now I aw how easy it a for the providence of
God to make even the maot miserable condition of
mankind wore. Now I looked back uon my deablte
solitary island, a the most plott pl ain the world,
and ll the hppine my heart could wish for was to be
but there again. I stretched out my hands to it, with
eager wihe: 0 happy desert'" said I, "I shall
never see thee more. 0 miserable creature! hither
am I going ?" Then I reproached myself with my
unthanul temper, and that I had repined at my
slitary condition; and now what would I give to be
on shor e again! Thus, e never see the true
state of on condition till it is illustrated to by its
contraries, nor know how to value what we enjoy, but
by the mantof it. It is sarcely possible to imagine
the onsteruation I was now in, being driven from my
loved island (for so it appeared to me now to be) into
the wide ocean almost two league, ad in the utmt
desairof eve recovering it again. Hower, I worked
h r till indeed my strength almost exhated, and
Bept my beot as much to the northward, that ia, to-
rsrds the side of the -crrent which the eddy lay on,
asI possibly could; hen about noonaa the surpassed
the meridin, I thought I felt a little breza of wind in
my face, springing up from St.E. This cheered my
heart a little, and especially hen, in about half a
hoormo, it blo pretty gentle gale. By this time,
Ihad gotat a frightl distance from the island, and
had the least cloudy or hazy weather intervened, I had
been undoe another may, too; for I had no compass
on board, and should never have knonO how to have
steered towards the island, if I had but onoe lat sight
of it; but the weather continuing clear, I applied my
self to get up my mast again, and spread my sail,
standing amay to the north as much as possible, to get
out of the current.
Jut as I had set my mast and sail, and the boat be-
gan to stretch away, I saw even by the clearno of the
water some alteration of the current as near; for
where the eau nt as so strong the water wee fol;
hbut perceiving the water clear, I found the nrent
abate; ad presently I fond to the east, at about half
a mile, a breach of the aum upon moe m s th

the main atres of it ran aay more southerly, l ng

repulse of the rocks, and made a streg eddy, which am

to them upon the ladder, or t be raecued from thieves
jost going to murder them, or who have been in such
ettemiti may gmess what my present surprise of joy
was, and howgladly I put my boat into the stream of
this eddy; ad the wind also freshening, how gladly I
pred myil to it,runnig cheerfully before the ind,
ad with a strong tide or eddy under foot,
Thi eddy cared me about a league in my way back
again, directlytowards the island, but about two league
more to the northward than the eurent which carried
me awayat first; so that when I came near the island,
I foaond myself open to the northern shore of it, that
is to ay, theot hera nd of the island, opposite to that
hih I-went out from.
When I hd made something more than a league of
way by th help of this rent or eddy, I found it wa
spet, and served me no farther. Howevera, I found
tbat being between two groat eurrente, vi. that on the
moth ide, which lad hurried me amy, and that on the
north, which ay about a league on the there side; I
say, between these two, in the wake of the island, I
fernd the water at leut till, and rnnng no wa y; and

having still s breem of wind fair for me, I khpt on
etering diey for the islad, though rat making aeh
freh way as I did before.
About four o'clock in the evening, being tbm within
a league of the island, I found the point of the rocks
which oasonei d this dleater, stretching out, a is
desarid before, to the southward, and eting off the
current more southerly, had, of corse, made another
eddy to the north; and this I found vey strong, bnt
not directly setting the way my ourse lay, which was
due west, but almost full north. Howeer, having
heah gle, I etroethed cr this eddy, santiag noth-
west; and in about an bor came within about a mile
of the shore, where, it being maooth water, I an got
to land.
When I was on hore, I fell on my kees, and gave
God thanks for my deliverace, realving to lay aide
all thoughts of my deliveane by my boat; and
frehing myself = th sch things a I had. I bought
my boat close to the shore, in a lithe ae that f had
spied under some tee, and laid me down to seep,
being quite spent with the lbour and fatigue of the

momrng to make my way toward along the shore,
and to seif there was noreea heremigoht yop

her. In about three miles, or tbereabout, tilngthe
shore I ceame to a very good inet or bay, about a mile
over, which narrowed till it came to avery little riet
or broo, where I found a very convenient harbor for
my boat, and where he lay if he hadbeen in a little
doc made on purpose for her. Here I put in, and
having towed my boat very afe, I went on shore to
look about me, and see where I w.
I soon found I had but a little passed by the place
where Ihad be before, then I traveled on foot to
that shore; so taking nothing out of my boat but my
gun ad umbrella, for it was exceedingly hot, I began
my march. The way w comfortable enough after
such a voyage a I had been upon,and I reached my
old Ibower in the evening, here I found evey thing
standing as I left it; for I always kept it m good
order, being a I said before, my ontry-house.

times, obin, Hobic, Robin Crusoe: poor obin

I was dead asleep at rt, being fatigued with row-

and with waking the latter part, that fdid not wake
thoroughly; but dozing between slesping ad waking,
thought I dreamed that smetody'pole to me ; bt a

However, evt though I knew it was the parrot, and

the aversion which naure gave me to these hellish
wretches was such, that I was as fearful of seeing them
as of seeing the devil himself. I did not so much as go
to look after my boat all this time, but began rather to
think of making another ; for I cduld not think of ever
making any more attempts to bring the other boat
round the island to me, lest I should meet with some
of these creatures at sea; in which case if I had
happened to have fallen into their hands, I knew what
would have been my lot. .
Time, however, and the satisfaction I had that I was
in no danger of being discovered by these people, began
to wear off my uneasiness about them; and I began to
live just in the same composed manner as before, only
with this difference, that I used more caution, and kept
my eyes more about me than I did before, lest I should
happen to be seen by any of them; and particularly,
I was more cautious of firing my gun, lest any of them,
being on the island; should happen to hear it. It was,
therefore, a very good providence to me that I had
furnished myself with a tame breed of goats, and that
I;had no need to hunt any more about the woods, or
shoot at them; and if I did catch any of them after
this, it was by traps and snares, as I had done before;
so that for two years after this, I believe I never fired
my gun once off, though I never went out without it;
and what was more, as I had saved three pistols out of
the ship, I always carried them out with me, or at least
- two of them, sticking them in my goat-skin belt. I also
furbished up one of the great cutlasses that I had out
of the ship, and made me a belt to hang it on also;
so that I was now a most formidable fellow to look
at when I went abroad, if you add to the former
description of myself, the particular of two listols, and
a great broadsword hanging at my side inWbelt, but
without a scabbard.
Things going on thus, as I have said, for some time,
I seemed, excepting these cautions, to be reduced to my
former calm, sedate way of living. All these things
#tended to show me, more and more, how far my con-
dition was'from being miserable, compared to some
others; nay, to many other particulars of life, which it
might have pleased God to have made my lot. It put
me upon reflecting how little repining there would be
among mankind at any condition of life, if people
would rather compare their condition with those that
were worse, in order to be thankful, than be always
comparing them with those which are better, to assist
their murmurings and complaining.
As in my present condition there were not really
many things which I wanted, so, indeed, I thought that
the frights I had been in about these savage wretches,
and-the concern I had been in for my 6wn preservation,
had taken off the edge of my invention for my own
conveniences; and I had dropped a good design, which

night and day, I could think of nothing but how I might
destroy some of these monsters in their cruel, bloody
entertainment; and,,if possible, save the victim they
should bring hither to destroy. It would take up a
larger volume than this whole work is intended to be,
to set down all the contrivances I hatched, or rather
brooded upon, in my thoughts, for the destroying these
creatures, or at least frightening them so as to prevent
their coming hither any more: but all this was abortive;
nothing could be possible to take effect, unless I was to
be there to do it myself: and what could one man do
among them, when perhaps there might be twenty or
thirty of them together with their darts, or their bows
and arrows, with which they could shoot as true to a
mark as I could with my gun.
Sometimes thought of digging a hole under the
place where they made their fire, and putting in five or
six pounds of gunpowder, which, when they kindled
their fire, would consequently take fire, and blow up all
that was negr it: but as, in the first place, I should be
unwilling to waste so much powder upon them, my store
being now within the quantity of one barrel, so neither
could I be sure of its going off at any certain time, when
it might surprise them; and, at best, that it would do
little more than just blow the fire about their ears and
fright them, but not sufficient to make them forsake the
place: so I laid it aside; and then proposed that I
would place myself in ambush in some convenient place,
with my three guns all double loaded, and in the middle
of their bloody ceremony let fly at them, when I should
be sure to kill or wound perhaps two or three at every
shot; and then falling in upon them with my three
pistols and my sword, I made no doubt but that, if there
were twenty, I should kill them all. This fancy pleased
my thoughts .for some weeks, and I was so full of it
that I often dreamed of it, and sometimes, that I was
just going to let fly at them in my sleep. I went so far
with it in my imagination, that I employed myself
several days to find out proper places to put myself in
ambuscade, as I said, to watch for them, and I went
frequently to the place itself, which was now grown
more familiar to me : but while my mind was thus filled
with thoughts of revenge and a bloody putting twenty
or thirty ofe them to the sword, as I may call it, the
horror I had at the place, and at the signals of the bar-
barous wretches devouring one another, abetted my
malice. Well, at length I found a place in the side of
the hill, where I was satisfied I might securely wait till
I saw any of their boats coming; and might then, even
before they would be ready to come on shore, convey

whimsical thought, and I reproved myself often for the and accordingly, I prepared two muskets and my all entered into any discussion of in my thoughts, any
simplicity of it: for I presently saw there would be the ordinary fowling-piece. The two muskets I loaded with farther than my passions were at first fired by the
want of several things necessary to the making my beer, a brace of slugs each, and four or five smaller bullets, horror I conceived at the unnatural custom of the people
that it would be impossible for me to supply; as, first, about-the size of pistol bullets ; and the fowling piece I of that country; who, it seenas, had been suffered by
casks to preserve it in, which wasa thing that, as I have loaded with near a handful of swan-shot of the largest Providence, in His wise disposition of the world, to have
observed already, I could never compass: no, though size; I also loaded my pistols with about four bullets no other guide than that of their own abominable and
I spent not only many. days, but weeks, nay months, each; and, in this posture, well provided with ammu- vitiated pas-ions; and, consequently, were left, and
perhaps had been so for some ages, to act such horrid
tYings, and receive such dreadful customs, as nothing
but nature, entirely abandoned by Heaven, and actuated
I by some hellish degeneracy, could have run them into.
But now, when, as I have sdid, I began to be weary of
the fruitless excursion which I had made so long and so
far every morning in vain, so my opinion of the action
itself began to alter;. and I began, with cooler and
calmer thoughts, to consider what I was going to en-
gage in : what authority or call I had to pretend to be
judge and executioner upon these men as criminals,
whom Heaven had thought fit, for so many ages, to
suffer, unpunished, to go on, and to be, as it were, the
executioners of His judgments one upon another: how
far these people were offenders against me, and what
right I had to engage in the quarrel of that blood which
they shed promiscuously upon one another. I debated
this very often with myself thus: "How do I know
what God himself judges in this particular case ? It is
certain these people do not commit this as a crime; it is
not against their own consciences reproving, or their
light reproaching them; they do not know it to be an
offence, and then commit it in defiance of divine justice,
as we do in almost all the sins we commit. They think
CRUSOE FLEES TO HIS FORTIFICATION. it no more a crime to kill a captive taken in war, than
we do to kill an ox; or to eat human flesh, than we do
in attempting it, but to no purpose. In the next place, nation for a second and third charge, I prepared myself to eat mutton."
'I had fo hops to make it keep, no yeast to make it for my expedition. When I considered this a little, it followed necessarily
work, no copper or kettle to make it boil; and yet with After I had thus laid the scheme of my design, and in that I was certainly in the wrong; that these people

accomplishing it, when once I had it in my head to begin coming near the island, or standing over towards it; but many occasions, put whole troops of men to the sword,

left for bullets. It was now the month of December, as I said above,
I fancied myself now like one of the ancient giants in my twenty-third year; and this, being the southern
solstice (for winter I cannot call it), was the
particular time of my harvest, and required
me to be pretty much abroad in the fields,
when, going out early in the morning, even
before it was thorough daylight, I was sur-
prised with seeing a light of some fire upon
the shore, at a distance from me of about two
miles, toward that part of the island where I
had observed some savages had been, as before,
and not on the other side,-but, to my great
affliction, it was on my side of the island.
I was indeed terribly surprised at the sight,
and stopped short within my grove, not daring
to go out, lest I might be surprised; and yet
I had no more peace within, from the appre-
hensions I had that if these savages, in ram-
bling over the island, should find my corn
standing or cut, or any of my works or im-
provements, they would immediately conclude
that there were people in the place, and
would then never rest till they had fond
me out. In this extremity I went back
directly to my castle, pulled up the ladder
after me, and made all things without look
as wild and natural as I could.
Then I prepared myself within, putting
myself in a posture of defence. I loaded
all my cannon, as I called them-that is to
say, my muskets, which were mounted upon

me with the greatest care and caution imaginable. And
now I found, to my great comfort, how happy it was
that I had provided a tame flock or herd of goats, for I
durst not upon any account fire my gun, especially near
that side of the island where they usually came, lest I
should alarm the s wages; and if they had fled from
me now, I was sure to have them come again with
perhaps two or three hundred canoes with them in a
few days, and then I knew what to expect. However,
I wore out a year and three months more before I ever
saw any more of the s vages, and then I found them
again, as I shall soon observe. It is true they might
have been there once or twice ; but either they made no
stay, or at least I did not see them; but in the month

over for the main. This was a dreadful sight to me
especially as, going down to the shore, I could see the
marks of horror which the dismal work they had been
about had left behind it, viz. the blood, the bones, and
part of the flesh of human bodies eaten and devoured
by those wretches with merriment and sport. I was so
filled with indignation at the sight, that I now begad to
premediate the destruction of the next that I saw
there, let them be whom or how many soever. It
seemed evident to me that the visits which they made
thus to this island were not very frequent, for it was
above fifteen months before any more of them came on'
shore there again,-that is to say, I neither saw them
nor any footsteps or signals of them in all that time ;
for as to the rainy seasons, then they are sure not to
come abroad, at least not so far. Yet all this while I
lived uncomfortably, by reason of the constant appre-
hensions of their coming upon me by surprise: from
whence I observe, that the expectation of evil is more
bitter than the suffering, especially if there is no
room to shake off that expectation, or those appre-
During all this time I was in the murdering humour,
and spent most of my hours, which should have been
better employed, in contriving how to circumvent and
fall upon them the very next time I should see them,-
especially if they should be divided, as they were the
last time, into two parties; nor did I consider at all
that if I killed one party-suppose ten or a dozen-I
was still the next day, or week, or month, to kill
another, and so another, even ad infinitum, till I should
be, at length, no less a murderer than they were in being
man-eaters-and perhaps much more so. I spent my
days now in great perplexity and anxiety of mind,
expecting that I should one day or other fall into the
hands of these merciless creatures; and if I did at any
time venture abroad, it was not without looking around

w- LIFE Ai

He was a comely, handsome fellow, perfectly well
made, with straight, strong limbs, not too large, tall and
well shaped; and, as I reckon, about twenty-six years
of age. He had a very good countenance, not a fierce
and surly aspect, but seemed to have something very
manly in his face; and yet he had all the sweetness and
softness of a European in his countenance too,especially
when he smiled. His hair was long and black, not
curled like wool; his forehead very high and large; and
a great vivacity andpsparkling sharpness in his eyes.
The colour of his skin was not quite black, but very
tawny; and yet not an ugly, yellow, -nauseous tawny, as
the Brazilians and Virginians, and other natives of
America are, but of a bright kind of a dun olive-colour,
that had in it something very agreeable, though not
very easy to describe. His face was round and plump ;
his nose small, not flat like the Negroes; a very good
mouth, thin lips, and his fine teeth well set, and as
white as ivory.
After he had slumbered, rather than slept, about half
an hour, he awoke again, and came out of the cave to
me; for I had been milking my goats, which I had in
Sthe inclosure just by: when he espied me, he came run-
ning to me, laying himself down again upon the ground,
with all the possible signs of an humble, thankful dis-
position, making a great many antic gestures to show it.
At last he lays his head flat upon the ground, close to
S my foot, and sets my other foot upon his head, as he
Shad done before; and after this, made all the signs to
me of subjection, servitude, and submission, imagin-
able, to let me know how he would serve me so long as
he lived. I understood him in many things, and let him
know that I was very well pleased with him. In a little
time I began to speak to him, and teach him to speak to
me; and, first, I let him know his name should be
FUIDAY, which was the day I saved his life: I callV
him so for the memory of the time. I likewise taught
him to say Master; and then let him know that was to
be my name: I likewise taught him to say Yes and No,
and to know the meaning of them. I gave him some
milk in an earthen pot, and let him see me drink it
before him, and sop my bread in it; and gave him a
cake of bread to do the like, which he quickly complied
with, and made signs that it was very good for him. I
kept there with him all that night; but, as soon as it
was day, I beckoned to him to come with me, and let
him know I would give him some clothes; at which he
seemed very glad, for he was stark naked. As we
went by the place where he had buried the two men, he
pointed exactly to the place, and showed me the marks
that he had made to find them again, making signs to
me that we should dig them up again and eat them. At
this, I appeared'very angry, expressed my abhorrence of
it, made as if I would vomit at the thoughts of it, and
beckoned with my hand to him to come away, which he
did immediately, with great submission. I then led him
up to the top of the hill, to see if his enemies were
gone; and pulling out my glass, I looked, and saw
plainly the place where they had been, but no appear-
ance of them or their canoes; so that it was plain they
were gone, and had left their two comrades behind them,
without any search after-them.
But I was not content with this discovery; but having
now more courage, and consequently more curiosity, I
took my man Friday with me, giving him the sword in
his hand, with the bow and arrows at his back, which I
found he could use very dexterously, making him carry
one gun for me, and I two for myself; and away we
marched to the place where these creatures had been;
S for I had a mind now to get some fuller intelligence of
them. When I came to the place, my very blood ran
chill in my veins, and my heart sunk within me, at the
horror of the spectacle; indeed, it was a dreadful sight,
at least it was so to me, though Friday made nothing of
it. The place was covered with human bones, the
ground dyed with their blood, and great pieces of flesh
left here and there, half-eaten, mangled, and scorched;
and, in short, all the tokens of the triumphant feast
they had been making there, after a victory over their
enemies. I saw three skulls, five hands, and the bones
of three or four legs and feet, and abundance of other
parts of the bodies; and Friday, by his signs, made me
understand that they brought over four prisoners to
feast upon; that three of them were eaten up, and
that he, pointing to himself, was the fourth; that there
had been a great battle between them and their next king,
of whose subjects, it seems, he had been one, and that
they had taken a great number of prisoners; all which
were carried to several places, by those who had taken
them in the fight, in order to feast upon them, as was done
S here by these wretches upon those they brought hiter.
I caused Friday to gather all the skulls, bones, flesh,
and whatever remained, and lay them together in a
heap, and make a great fire upon it, and burn them all
to ashes. I found Friday had still a hankering stomach
after some of the flesh, and was still a cannibal in his
nature; but I showed so much abhorrence at the very
thoughts of it, and at the least appearance of it, that he
durst not discover it: for I had, by some means, let him
know that I fould kill him if he offered it.


When he had done this, we came back to our castle;
and there I fell to work for my man Friday; and first of
all, I gave him a pair of linen drawers, which I had out of
the poor gunner's chest I mentioned, which I found in
the wreck, and which, with a little alteration, fitted him
very well; and then I made him a jerkin of goat's skin,
as well as my skill would allow (for I was now grown a
tolerably good tailor); and I gave him a cap which I
made of hare's skin, very convenient, and fashionable
enough; and thus he was clothed, for the present,
tolerably well, and was mighty well pleased to see him-
self almost as well clothed as his master. It is true, he
went awkwardly in these clothes at first: wearing the
drawers was very awkward to him, and the sleeves of
the waistcoat galled his shoulders and the inside of his
arms; but a little easing them where he complained
they hurt him, and using himself to them, he took to
them at length very well.
The next day, after I came home to my hutch with

him,-I began to consider where I should lodge him; and,
that I might do well for him and yet be perfectly easy
myself, I made a little tent for him in the vacant place
between my two fortifications, in the inside of the last,
and in the outside of the first. As there was a door or
entrance there into my cave, I made a formal framed
door-case, and a door to it, of boards, and set it up in
the passage, a little within the entrance; and, causing
the door to open in the inside, I barred it up in the
night, taking in my ladders, too; so that Friday could
no way come at me in the inside of my innermost wall,
without making so much noise in getting over that it
must needs awaken me; for my first wall had now a
complete roof overit of long poles, covering all my tent,
and leaning up to the side of the hill; which was again
laid across with smaller sticks, instead of laths, and then
thatched over a great thickness with the rice-straw,
which was strong, like reeds; and at t e hole or place
which was left to go in or out by the ladder, I had
placed a kind of trap-door, which, if it had been

attempted on the outside, would not have opened at all;
but would have fallen down and made a great noise: as
to weapons, I took them all into my side every night.
But I needed none of all this precaution; for never man
had a more faithful, loving, sincere servant than Friday
was to me; without passions, sullenness, or designs,
perfectly obliged and engaged; his very affections were
tied to me, like those of a child to a father; and I dare
say he would have sacrificed his life to save mine, upon
any occasion whatsoever: the many testimonies he gave
me of this put it out of doubt, and soon convinced me
that I needed to use no precautions for my safety on his
This frequently gave me occasion to observe, and that
with wonder, that however it had pleased God in His
providence, and in the government of the works of His
hands, to take from so great a part of the world of His
creatures the best uses to which their faculties and the
powers of their souls are adapted, yet that He has


bestowed upon them the same powers, the same reason,
the same affections; the same sentiments of kindness
and obligation; the same passions, and resentments of
wrongs, the same sense of gratitude, sincerity, fidelity,
and all the capacities of doing good, and receiving good,
that He has given to us; and that when He pleases to
offer them occasions of exerting these, they are as ready,
nay, more ready, to apply them to the right uses for
which they were bestowed, than we are. This made
me very melancholy sometimes, in reflecting, as the
several occasions presented, how mean a use we make
of all these, even though we have these powers en-
lightened by the great lamp of instruction, the Spirit
of God, and by the knowledge of His word added to
our understanding; and why it has pleased God to hide
the like saving knowledge from so many millions of
souls, who, if I might judge by this poor savage, would
make a much better use of it than we did. From hence,
I sometimes was led too far, to invade'the sovereignty
of Providence, and, as it were, arraign the justice of so

-long discourse with him about the devil, the origin of
him, his rebellion against God, his enmity to man, the
reason of it, the setting himself up in the dark parts of
the world to be worshipped instead of God, and as God,
and the many stratagems he made use of to delude
mankind to their ruin; how he had a secret access to
our passions and to our affections, and to adapt -his
snares to our inclinations, so as to cause us even to be
our own eptmpters, and run upon our destruction by our
own choice.
I found it was not so easy to imprint right notions
in his mind about the devil as it was- about the being
of a God: nature assisted all my arguments to evidence
to him even the necessity of a great First Cause-an
overruling, governing Power-a secret directing Provi-
dence; and of the equity and justice of paying homage
to Him that made us, and the like; but there appeared
nothing of this kind in the notion of an evil spirit; of
his origin, his being, his nature; and, above all, of his
inclination to do evil, and to draw us in to do so too:
and the poor creature puzzled me once in such a manner,
by a question merely natural and innocent, that I scarce
* knew, what to say to him. I had been talking a great
deal to him of the power of God, His omnipotence,
His aversion to sin, His being a consuming fire to the
workers of iniquity; how, as He had made us all, He
could destroy us and all the world in a moment; and
he listened with great seriousness to me all the while.
After this, I had been telling him how the devil was
God's enemy in the hearts of men, and used all his
malice and skill to defeat the good designs of "Provi-
dence, and to ruin the kingdom of Christ in the world,
and the like. Well," says Friday, "but you say God
is so strong, so great; is He not much strong, much
might as the devil?" "Yes, yes," says I, "Friday;
God is stronger than the devil: God is above the devil,
and therefore we pray to God to tread him down under
our feet, and enable us to resist his temptations and
quench his fiery darts." "But," says he again, "if God
much stronger, much might as the wicked devil, why
God no -kill the devil, so make him no more do
wicked ?" I was strangely surprised at this question;
and, after all, though I was now an old man, yet I was
but a young doctor, and ill qualified for a casuist, or a
solver of difficulties; and at first I could not tell what
to say; so I pretended not to hear him, and asked him
what he said: but he was too earnest for an answer to
forget his question, so that he repeated it in the very
same broken words as above. By this time I had
recovered myself a little, and I said, God will at last
punish him severely; he is reserved for the judgment,
and is to be cast into the bottomless pit, to dwell with
everlasting fire." This did not satisfy Friday; but he
returns upon me, repeating my words, "'Reserve at
last!' me no understand: but why not kill the devil
now; not kill great ago?" "You may as well ask
me," said I, why God does not kill you or me, when
we do wicked things here that offend him: we are
preserved to repent and be pardoned." He mused some
time on this: Well, well," says he, mightily affec-
tionately, "that well: so you, I, devil, all wicked, all
preserve, repent, God pardon all." Here I was run
down again by him to the last degree: and it was a
testimony to me, how the mere notions of nature,
though they will guide reasonable creatures to the
knowledge of a God, and of a worship or homage due
to the supreme being of God, as the consequence of our
nature, yet nothing but divine revelation can form the
knowledge of Jesus Christ, and of redemption pur-
chased for us; of a Mediator of the new covenant, and
of an Intercessor at the footstool of God's throne; I
say, nothing but a revelation from heaven can form
these in the soul; and that, therefore, the gospel of our
Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, I mean the Word of
God, and the Spirit of God, promised for the guide and
sanctifier of His people, are the absolutely necessary
instructors of the souls of men in the saving knowledge
of God, and the means of salvation.
I therefore diverted the present discourse between
me and my man, rising up hastily, as upon some sudden
occasion of going out; then sending him for something
a good way off, I seriously prayed to God that He would
enable me to instruct savingly this poor savage; assist-
ing, by His Spirit, the heart of the poor ignorant
creature to receive the light of the knowledge of God'
in Christ reconciling him to Himself, and would guide
me to speak so to him from the Word of God, that his
conscience might be convinced, his eyes opened, and his
soul saved. When he came againto me, I entered into
a long discourse with him upon the subject of the re-
demption of man by the Saviour of the world, and of
the doctrine of the gospel preached from heaven, viz.
of repentance towards God, and faith in our blessed
Lord Jesus. I then explained to him as well as I could
why our blessed Redeemer too knot on Him the nature
of angels, but the seed of Abraham; and how, for that
reason, the fallen angels had no share in the redemp-
tion; that He came only to the lost sheep of the house
of Israel, and the like.
I had, God knows, more sincerity than knowledge in


all the methods I took for this poorcreature's instruction,
and must acknowledge, what I believe all that act upon
the same principle will find, that in laying things open
to him, I reallyinformed and instructed myself in many
things that either I did not know, or had not fully con-
sidered before, but which occurred naturally to my mind
upon searching into them, for the information of this
poor savage; and I had more affection in my inquiry
after things upon this occasion than ever I felt before:
so that, whether this poor wild wretch was the better
for me or no, I had great reason to be thankful that
ever he came to me; my grief sat lighter upon me; my
habitation grew comfortable to me beyond measure:
and when I reflected that in this solitary life which I
have been confined to, I had not only been moved to
look up to heaven myself, and to seek the Hand that
had brought me here, but was now to be made an instru-
ment, under Providence, to save the life and, for aught
I knew, the soul of a poor savage, and bring him to the
true knowledge of religion, and of the Christian
doctrine, that he might know Christ Jesus, in whom is
life eternal; I say, when I reflected upon all these
things, a secret joy ran through every part of my soul,
and I frequently rejoiced that ever I was brought to
this place, which I had so often thought the most
dreadful of all afflictions that could possibly have
befallen me.
I continued in this thankful frame all the remainder


of my time; and the conversation which employed the
hours between Friday and me was such as made the
three years which we lived there together perfectly and
completely happy, if any such thing as complete happi-
ness can be formed in a sublunary state. This savage
was now a good Christian, a much better than I; though
I have reason to hope, and bless God for it, that we
were equally penitent, and comforted, restored peni-
tents. We had here the Word of God to read, and no
farther off from His Spirit to instruct, than if we had
been in England. I always applied myself, in reading
the Scripture, to let him know, as well as I could, the
meaning of what I read; and he again, by his serious
inquiries and questioning, made me, as I said before, a
much better scholar in the Scripture knowledge than I
should ever have been by my own mere private reading.
Another thing I cannot refrain from observing here also,
from experience in this retired part of my life, viz. how
infinite and inexpressible a blessing it is that the know-
ledge of God, and of the doctrine of salvation by Christ
Jesus, is so plainly laid down in the Word of God, so
easy to be received and understood, that, as the bare
reading the Scripture made me capable of understanding
enough of my duty to carry me directly on to the great
work of sincere repentance for my sins, and laying hold
of a Saviour for life and salvation, to a stated reforma-
tion in practice, and obedience to all God's commands,

and this without any teacher or instructor, I mean
human; so the same plain instruction sufficiently served
to the enlightening this savage creature, and bringing
him to be such a Christian as I have known few equal
to him in my life.
As to all the disputes, wrangling, strife, and conten-
tion which have happened in the world about religion,
whether niceties in doctrines, or schemes of Church
government, they were all perfectly useless to us, and,
for aught I can yet see, they have been so to the rest of
the world. We had the sure guide to heaven, viz. the
Word of God; and we had, blessed be God, comfortable
views of the Spirit of God teaching and instructing by
His word, leading us into all truth, and making us both
willing and obedient to the instruction of His word.
And I cannot see the least use that the greatest know-
ledge of the disputed points of religion, which have
made such confusion in the world, would have been to
us, if we could have obtained it. But I must go on
with the historical part of things, and take every part
in its order,
After Friday and I became more intimately acquainted,
and that he could understand almost all I said to him,
and speak pretty fluently, though in broken English, to
me, I acquainted him with my own history, or at least
so much of it as related to my coming to this place;
how I had lived there, and how long; I let him into the
mystery, for such it was to him, of gunpowder and'


bullet, and taught him how to shoot. I gave him a
knife which he was wonderfully delighted with; and I
made him a belt, with a frog hanging to it, such as in
England we wear hangers in; and in the frog, instead
of a hanger, I gave him a hatchet, which was not only
as good a weapon in some cases, but much more useful
upon other occasions.
I described to him the country of Europe, particu-
larly England, which I came from; how we lived, how
we worshipped God, how we behaved to one another,
and how we traded in ships to all parts of the world.
I gave him an account of the wreck which I had been
on board of, and showed him as near as I could, the
place where she lay; but she was all beaten in pieces
before, and gone. I showed him the ruins of our boat,
which we lost when we escaped, and which I could not
stir with my whole strength then; but was now fallen
almost all to pieces. Upon seeing this boat, Friday
stood musing a great while, and said nothing. I asked
him what it was he studied upon. At last says he,
" Me see such boat like come to place at my nation." I
did not understand him a good while; but, at last, when
I had examined further into it, I understood by him,
that a boat, such as that had been, came on shore upon
the country where he lived: that is, as he explained it,
was driven thither by stress of weather. I presently
imagined that some European ship must have been cast


away upon their coast, and the boat might get loose From this time, I confess, I had a mind to venture
and drive abore; but was so dull that I never on overad ee if I would possibly jon with those bearded

into the water: but when she was in, she would have

Wnen she was. in the water, though the wu so big,
it amazed me to ee with what dexterity and how swift
my man Friday uld matnae her, turn her, and paddle
her along. So I asked him if he would, and if we might
venture over in hr. Yes," he maid, we venture over
in her very well, though reat hlow wind." However,
I had a farther design that he knew nothing of, and
that was, to make a mast und a sail, and to fit her with
an anhor and cable. As to a maut, that was easy
enough to get; I pitched upon a ght young
edar-re, whichI found near theplnu, andwhih there
wer great plentyof in the island, and I set Friday to
work to cut it dow, and gave him directions ho to
shape and order it. But as to the sail,thatwa my
particular cae I knew I bad old sll rather pieces
of old sails,enough; butas Ihad had them now eax-and-
twenty y by me, and had not been very eflto pre-
serve them, nout imagiig that I should ever have this
kind of use for thm di nut doubt but they were all
rotten; and, indeed, most of them were so. However,
I found two pines, which appeared pretty good, and
withthes Iwent to wor; and with a great deal of
pains, and awkward stitching, you maybe sue, for want
of needles, I at length made a hree-cornered ugly thing,
like what we call in England a shoulder-of-mutton sat,
to go with a boom at bottom, and a little hor sprit at
the top, such usually our ships' loag-boats sal with,
and such as I beat knew how tomangea it was such
a one as I bad to the boat in which made my escape
from Barbary, as related in the fst part of my story.
I was nor two months performing this lst work,
viz. rigging and fittig d my msts and ail; for I finished
them very complete, mhing a small stay, and a sail, or
foresail toit, to aist if we should turn to windwad;
and, what aa more than all, I fixed a rudder to the
stem of her to steer with. I was but a bungling ship-
wright, yet ao I knew the usefulness, and evn nces
sit of such a thing, I applied myself with s much
p s to do it, that at last I brought it to pam; though,
nideting the many dull contrivances Ihed for it that
failed, I think it cot me almost u much abouas
making the boat.
Afterall this was done,I had my man Fridaytoteach
a to what belonged to the navigation of my boat; for,
though he knew very well how to paddle a cano, he
knew nothing of what belonged to a sail and a r:dder;
and was the moat amazed when he saw me work the
boat to and again in the ea by the rudder, and how
the sail gibbed, and filled tils way or that way, as the
co e we sailed changed; I sy, when he sw this, he
stll like one astonished d uamuo d. However, uith
a little use, I made all thee things familiar to him, and
he became a expert sailor, except that of the comlss
I could make him understand very little. On the other
hand, there was very little cloudy weather, und
seldom or never any fogs in these parts, there was tlhe
le occasion for a compass, seeing the stars were always
to be s by night, and the share by day, except in
the rainy seasons, and then nobody cared to sti abad
either by land or sea.
I wa now entered on the seven-and-twentieth year
of my captivity in this place; though the three last
yea that I had this creature with me ought rather to
be left out of the account, my habitation being quite of
another kind than in all the rest of the time. I kept
the ammoeary o y Ideg here wth th me
thankfulness toGod for His mercies asat first: and if
I bad such cause of acnowledgment at first, I had
much more so now, having such additional testimonies
of the care of Providene over me, and the great hops
I had of being effetually and spedily delivered; for I
had an invinible impesmiot upon my thoughts that
my deliverane aas at and,and tlat I should not be
other year in this place. I wont on, however, with
my hlsuandry; digging, planting, and fencing,asusual.
I gathered nd cured my graps,nd did ever neces-
ary thing before.
The rany sean was, in the meantime, upon me,
whoa I kept more within doors than at other times.
We bestowed e our new essel as secure as we could,
bringing her up into the crek, where, I said in the
beginning, I laded my rafts from the ship; and hauling
her up to the shore at high-water mark, I made my
man Friday dig little doc, ust big enough to hold
her, and just deep enough to give her water enough to
flt in; and then, whenthe tide was out, we made a
strog dam across theendofit, to eep the water out;
and sohe laydry as to the tide from the sea: andt
keep the rain off, we lanid a great many boughs of tree,
so thick that was as well thatched a and
thus wa waited for the months of November adm
December, in which I designed to make my adventure.
W'hen the settled eason began to come in, a tie
thought of my design returned with the fair weather,I
aspreparing daily for the voyage. And the first thing
I did was to lay by a certain quantity ofprovison,
being the st afor our voyage: and intendedin awee
or a fortnight' time, to open the docb, and Iounch out

thi kind, when I called to Feday, d bid him to go to
the sea-hore, adsee if he would nnd a turtle or tortoise,
a thing which we generally got once wee, for the
saie of the egg well a the flesh. Friday had not
been long gone hen he came running back, and flew
over my outer wall, or fence, like one that felt not the
ground, or the steps he set his feet on; and before I
had time to p him, hecries onttome,O master!
0 master! 0 sorrow! 0 bad!"-" What's the matter,
Friday?" says I. "0 yonder there," sys he, "one,
two, three canoes; one, two, three By this my of
speaking, I conchlded there were six; but on inquiry I
found there were but three. "W yell, Friday ys I,
"do not be frightened." So Iheartened him upas well
as I could. However, I saw the poor fellow was most
terribly scared, for nothing ran in his head but that
they wee come t look for him, and would cut him in
pieces aud eat him; and the poor feflluw trembled so
that I siareely knew what to do with him. I comforted
him as well as I could, and told him I was in a much
dangr as he, and that they would eat me as well
him. But,"sa I, "Friday, we must resolve to ght
them. Cn you fight, Friday ?" "Me shoot," ays he,
"but there come many great number." "Nd mtter

SI went and fetched a ged
dram of rum and gave him; for I had been so good a
husband of my rum, that I had a great deal left When
he had drunk it, I made him take the two fowling-piec,
whcbh we always carried, and load them with large
swan-hot, as big as small pistol-bullets. Then I took
four muskets, and loaded them with two slugs, and five
small bullets ech; and my two pistols I loaded with a
bece of ballets ech. I hung my great sword, as usual,
naked by my sie, rod gave Friday his hatchet. When
I had thus prepared myself, I ook my perspctive-gl ,
and went up to the sine of the hill, to see wht I reuld
discover; and I found quickly by my glass, that there
were one-and-twenty savage, three prisoners, and three
canoes ; and that their whole business seemed to bethe
triumphant banquet upon tlese three human bodies; a
barbous feast indeed! but nothing more than, as I
bhad observed, as usual with them. I observed .lo,
that they had landed, not where they had done when
Piriday made his escape, but nearer to my creek, where
the shore was low, and where a thick wood eame almost
clom down to le sa. This, withthhe abhorrence of the
inhuman errand these wretehe came about, filled me
with such indierotion that I came do again to
Friday, and told him I wa resolved to go do tothem,
and kill them all; and asked him if he would stand by
me. He had now got over his fright, and his spirits
being a little raised with the dram I had given him, he
wa very cheerful, nd told me, a before, he would die
when I bid die.
In this fit of fury I divided the arms which I had
charged, a before, betwn us; I gave Friday one
pistol to stick in his girdle, and three guns upon his
sbhoulder,and I tookone pistol and the other three guns
myself;d in this posture we m hed ot. Itook a
-mail bottle of rum in my pocket, and gave Friday a
Sge bag with morepowde d bullets; and to orders,
I charged him to keep close behind me, and not to stir,
or shoot, or do anything till I bid him, and in the mean
time not to speak a word. In this posture I fetched
a ompas to my right hand of near a mile, a well to
get over the creek to got into the wood, so that I
could come within shot of them before I should be dis-
revred, which I had seen by my glass it wes ea y to do.
While I was making this march, my former thoughts
returning, I began to abate my re.olution:-I do not
mean that I entertained any fer of their number, for,
as they were naked, unarmed wretches, it is certain I
was superior to them-nay, though I had been alone.
But it occurred to my thoughts, what call, what oca-
sion, much e what necessity, I w in to go d dip
my hands in blood, to attack people who had neither
done or intended me any wrong? ho, a to me, ere
innocent, and whose barbarous customs were their own
disaster, being in them atoken, indeed, of Gods having
left them, with the thher nations of that part of the
world, to such stupidity, and to such inhuman course,
but did not call me to take upon me to be judge of
their actions, much ler an executioner of His justice,-
that whenever He thought it He would take the cause
into Hi own hands, cd by national vengeance punith
them as a people for national crimes, but that, m the
meantime, it was none of my busines,-that it wa
trne Friday might justify it, because he w a declared
enemy, din a state of war with those very particular
people, and it was lawful for him to attack them,-but
I couldnot aytheame with regardtomylf. These
things were warmlypreseed upon my thonghto all the
way a I went, that I resolved I would only go and

direct; buttat ulea something offered that was mo
eall to me than yet I ne of, I would not meddle
with them.
With tis resolution I entered the wood, d with l
possible wariness d ilenee, Fiday following lose at
my heels, marched till I rme tothe st of the wood
on the side which was next to them, only that one
corner of the wood ay betweenme and them. Hee I
called ftly to Friday, nd showing him a great tree
which was jt at the eer of the wod, I bade him go
to the tree, nd bring me word if he could ee there
&enl. what they were doing. He did so, and came
mmedely b to me, and told methe might b

oanther lay bound upon the snd a little from them,

nation, but one of the bearded men e had told me of
that ome to their country in the boat. Iwafilldd with
horror at te er namig of the whito bearded man;
and going to the tree, I aw plisoly by my glass a white
man, who lay upon the beach of the sea with his hands
and his feet tied with flags, or things like ruhe, and
that he an European, and bad clothes on.
There w another tree, and a litte thicket beyond it,
about fifty yards nrer to them than the where I
was, which, by going little way about, I saw I might
come at undiscovered, and then I should be within
half a shot of them ; mI withheld my passion, though
I was indeed enraged to the highest degree; and going
back about twenty paces, I got behind some busehs,
which held all the war till I ome to the other tree, nd

I asked him what he thought would become of them
there, and if they had formed any design of making
their escape. Ho rid they had many o ttions
about it; but that having neither veoel, nor toolso
build one, nor provisions of any rind, their ounoils
always endod in teaM and despuir. I asked him how he
thought they would receive a peoposl from me, which
might tend towards o escape ; and whether, if the
ere all here, it might not be done. I told him wiz
freedom, I feared mostly their toeochery and rll-nsage
of me if put my life in their hands; forth gratitude
was no inherent virtue in the nature of man, no did
men always sqre their dealings y the obligation
they had received, so much as they did by'the ad -
tages they epeoted. I told him it\would be very had
that I should be the instrument of their dliveronc,
and that they should afterwards m ke me their prison
in New Spain, here an Englishman was certain to bh
made a sacrifie, rwht neceeasdty,or what accident e
brought him thither; and that I had rather be de=hmr
up to the mvages, ad he devoured alive, than fail into
the merciles elaws of the priests, and e carried ito
the Inquisition. I added that, otherwise, I was pe
suaded, if they wre all here, we might, with o many
hands, build a barque large enough to carry us ll away,
either to the .Brails southward, or to the islands or
Spanish coast northward; hut that if,in requital, they
should, hen I had put weapons into their hands, carry
me by force among their oo pole,I might ill-used
for my kindness to them, md maime my cae worse than
it was before.
Ho answered, with a great deal of eandour and
ingenuouse, th thatheir condition w s miserable,
and that they wre s sensible of it, that he believed
thly would abhor the thought of usng any ra0 un.
kindly that should contribute to their delivereane; and
that, if I pleased, he mould go to them, with the old
man, and discourse with them about it, and rtur
agains,d d rig me theirser; that he would make
cnditions with them upon their solemn oath, that they
should h absolutely unde my direction, as their mm-
mandr and captin; and they should swr upon the
hol sacraments and gospel to e true to me, ad go to
such Christia country a I should agree to, d no
othie; and to be directed wholly and absolutely my
orders, till they were Iaded safely in such country
I intended; and that he would brig a contract from
them, under their h hds, for that purpose. Then he
told d first osear to me himsel, that he
would never stir from me s lng as be lived, till I ga
him orders; and that he would tace my side to the hot
drop of his blood, if there should happen the lea
breach of faith among his motrymen. He told m
they wem al of them very ciil, honet men, ad they
weo under the gratest dits imagible, havin
neither weapons nor clothes, nor any food, but at th
mercy and dis etion of the svagses; out of all hope
of ever returning to their own country; and that h
was re, if I would undert their relief, they would
live amd die by me.
Upon these sotmraces, I'reolved to ventme to
relieve them, if possible, ad to =nd the old savage
and this Spaniard over to them to treat. But whcn we
had got all things in readiness to go, the Spaniard
himself started an objection, whih had so much pru-
dence in it on one hand, and so much sincerity on
the other had, that I could not hot be very wrll
rtisfied in it; ad, by his advice, put off the daliver-
ance of his comes for at last half a r. The cae
was thus: he had been with us now abot a month
during which time I had let him see in what manner
had provided, with the sasitanoe of Providence, for my
support; and he sw evidently what stock of cor ad
rice I had lad up; which, though it was more than
suffient for myself, yet it was not suffisent, without
good huhendey, for my family, now it was increased to
four; hbt much lose would it he suffient if his ountry-
men, who were, s he said, teen, till live, should
come over; and leat of all would it be suffcieot to
victual or vessel, if we should boild one, for a oage
toany of the Christian nloiesof Ameic ; Bs e told
me he thought it wold be more advisble to let hiom
and the other two dig and cutirto some more land, s
much as I would apreo seed to sow, and that swe should
wait another harvest, that we might hare a supply of
corn for his contrymen, whethey should come; for
want might e a temptation to them to disagese, or sot
to think themselves delivered, otherwise than out of one
diffclt into another. "You know," ys yhe, "the
children of Israel, though they rmjoied at first for their
being delivered oat of Egypt, yet rehelled ven against
God Himself, that delivered them, when they rame to
wat.hbrad in the wildrro "
His cation wu so u ble,and his advice s good,
that I could not =ht be mewell pleased with his pro-
po as well as I Wu tld ih hids fidelity; so we
fell to digging, I four o s aa woll as the wooden
tool, we wemre frid with ptnmttd;,t d, in about

a month's time, by the end of which it wamoae d-time,
we bad got so much land sod trimmed pu we
cowed two-snd-twenty bheohle of barley on, and sixteen
jars of rioe, hith wAe, i hort, all the seed we had to
spare: indeed, we left ouosve haarely sufficiet for our
own food for the ox month that we ad to epect o
op; that is to recning from the time we set ou
deed aide for sowng; for ist i ot to he opposed it i
six months in the -round ih that country.
Havin no society enough, and our number behog
uffelent toput us out of fear of the savages, if they
had ome, oless their number had been very great, we
went freely all over the island,wheever we found occa
sion ; and as we d oa escape or deliverance upon ou
thought, it was impoasibla, t least for me, to have the
means of it out of mine. For this purpose, I marked
out sverl trees, which I thought fit for our ek, and
I et FPiday ad his father to cut them down ; son the
I caused the Spaoard,to whom I imparted my thought
on that affair, to oversee sd direct their work. I
showed them with whot indefatigable pas I hd
hewed -.lorge tree into single plks, and I cusd
them to do the like, il thy made about a dozen lge
pl'anh of good oak, n r two feet broad. thirty-tiro fe
long, and from two inches to four inch tic: what
prodligio labour it took up, anoy one may imagine.
At the same time, I cntrived to increase my litl
flock tamere gats a much as I could; ad for thi
purposeI made Friday and the panird go out one
day, and myself with Friday the net day (for we took
our turos), and by this means we got about twenty
youog kids to breed up with the rest; for whenever wa
shot the dam, w saved the kids, and added them to
our flck. But, above all, th season for curig the
grapes omig on, I m ed such a prodigoquantity
to hung up i the sa, tht, I lieve, hd we een
at Aliut, where the rains of the sn m cured, we
could have tilled sixty or l ghtyhbrruls; sd these
with or bred, formed s great part of our food-very
good living, too, I asure you, for they ae exceedigly
It was nor hart, d our rop in good order: it
wa not the moat plentiful increase I had seen in the
island, but, however, it was moug h to a er our end;
for, from tweuty-two bushels of rle, we brought
and thrashed out above two hundred and twety
bushels; and the l int poportionaof the rice; whih
was store enough fe our food to the next harvest,
though all the sixteen Sp=nrds had been on shore
with me; or, if we had been ready fr a voyage, it
would very plentifully have ictualiled our ship to have
carried us to any pt of the world, that is to say,
part of America. When we had ths housd and
secured our magai of corner, we fell to wmark to make
more wichrware, via great baskets, in which we kept
it; and the Spaniard wa very handy and dexterous a
this part, and often bimed me that I did not make
some thing for dfence of this kind of work but I saw
need of it.
And now having a full supply of food for all the
guests I expected,I ave the Spniard leve to go over
tothe min to see what h cold do with those he had
left behind him the. I gave him a strict charge not
tho g y mm would not first swe, in the
presence of himself and the old avge, that he would
no way injure, fight with, or attc the peron K he
should find in the island, who was s hind to snd
for them in order to their delivered; but that they
mould stand by him ad defend him against all sueh
attempts, and wherevr they wnt, would be entirely
under and subjeted to his ommnmd and that this
should be pot in writing, and signed in their hands.
How they wre to have done this, when I knew they
had neither pn ninkt, was a question which we never
asked. Undarnth instructions, the Spaniard and the
ld savage, the father of Fridy, went away in one of
the canoe which th might he said to ha ome in, or
rather were brought in, hen they came a prmon. to
be devoured by the savge. I gave each of them a
musket, with a relock onit, and aboot eight charge
of powd and hall, charging them to b very good
husband of both, and not to use either of them but
upo orgentoeas
This ws a cheerful work, being the first measures
used by me, in view of my deliver e, fr nowm twty-
seen years and some days. I gave them provisions of
bread, and of dried grapes, sufrfient for themselves for
many dys and ufficit for all the Spaniards fo r about
eight days' time; and wishing them a good voyage, I
saw them go, agreeing with them about a eigol they
should hang out at their return, by which I should kow
them again, when they came back, at distance before
they mme sohore. They ent away, with afa:ir gele,
on the day that tle mon mas ot full, oby my amount in
the month of Ootober ;bat as for an eort reckoning of
days, after I had ene lost it, I. old nev recover it

It was noles than ei ht days I had waited for them
when a straoge and unfoeseeo accident interoeed, of
Which oth like rhas not, porhpo, heen heard of inhistory.
I was fast sleep i my hutch o morning, when my
man Fridy ame running in to me, nd called aloud,
"Master, master, they ao ome, they are come[" I
imped up, and, regordles of daugr, I went as moon
I could get my clothes on, through my little grove,
rhich, by the way, w hy i time gro to be a very
thick wood; I y, regrdless of danger, I went without
my arms, wich as ot my usm to dor : ut Iwu
urpsed, whn, tor my eyes to the rea, I presently
saw a boat about a league and a half distance, sta=d-
ing in for the shore, with ahouldee-of-motton a il, as
they call it, and the wind blowing pretty fat. to bring
them in: also I observed, presently, that they did not
mme from that side which the shore Iay on, but from
the southernmost end of the island. Upon this I
called P eidy in, and bade him lie dose, for thee wero
not the people we looed for, and that we might not
know yet whether they were friends or enemies. In
the next place, I went in to fetch my perspective glss,
to se what I could make of them; and, having taken
the ladder out, I climbed up to the top of the hill, as I
hsed to do when I as appehensive of anything, and to
mrakeh my view the plainer, without being disroverd. I
had scr st my foot upon the hill, when my eye
plainly discovered a ship ying at anchor, at about two
l es and a half dirtano from me, tl.E., but not
shove a league and a half from the osho. By my
observation, it appeared plainly to be an Englsh ship,
snd the hbot appeared to he an English long-boat.
I cannot expre the eonfuson I was in, though the
joy of seeing a ship,and one that I had reaon to lieve
ws manned by my own countrymen, and consequently
friends, w such s I cannot derorbe; but yet I had
oame secret doubts hang about me-I oant tell frm
whene" they mcam-bidding me keep upon my guard.
a the first plfi it ocred to me to comider what,
business sn English ship could have in that part of
the world, since t was not the way to or from y part
of the world where the Eoglish had say tmac; nd I
knew there had been no stos to drive them in there,
in distress; and that if they were really English it was
mot probable h that they we here upon no good deigu;
snd that I hadbetter continue o I masthan fall oto
the hands of thieves and murders.
Let no man despise o secret hints and notices of
anger which sometimes re given him hen he may
thin there is no possibility of its being al. That
such hints and notice are glvn us, I believe few that
have made any obreations of things cnm deny; that
they are ertain discoveries of n invisible world, sod a
onverse of spirit, we cannot doubt; and if the ten-
deny of them sems to he to warn us of danger, why
should re not suppose they me from some friendly
agent (whether spreme or inferior and subodinate, is
not the questio),and that they e given for our good
The preset question asbudantly onfirmse me in the
justice of this reasoning; for had I not been made
cautious by this secret admonitin, come it from hence
it will, I had been done inevitbly, and in a far worse
condition thin before, syou will see pesently. I had
not kept myself long in this pesthre, till I sa the boat
draw near the shore, as if they looked for a crek to
thrust in at, for the convenience of landing; however,
s they did not come quite far enough, they did not se
the little inlet where I formerly landed my rafts, bt
ran their beat on shore upon the beah, at about half
a mile from me; which was very happy for me; for
otherwise they would have landed just at my doo, as
I may sy, and would soon have beaten me out of my
castle, sd perhapo have plundered me of all I had.
Whme they were on shore, I was fully atised they
were Engihmen, at least out of them; one or two
I thought were Dutch, but it did not prove so; there
were in all leven men, whereof three of them I fond
wee armed, and, as I thought, bound; and when the
irat four or ive of them were jumped n shorm, they
took those three out of the boat, as prisons one of
the threes I could perceive using the most passeiota
gesthem of entrety, aflition, and despair even to
id of extmavaganee; the other two, I d peee
lifted up their hands sometimes and apperedon e
indeed, but not to such a degree s the first. I
perfectly confonded at the sght, and knew not what
the meaning of it should be. Friday called out to me
in =bglih, s well as he could, a0 master! you se
English ma eat perise well as savage mas."
"Why Friday," says I, "do you think they are goi
to sat them,then?--"Yes," says Friday, they'lll
eat them.N-" no," soy I, "Fiday; I em afraid
they will murder them, indeed; but you may ey mos
they will not eat them."

It now remained that the apthin ad I should inqire
in:o one another's dircmstnoces I began first, ad told
him my whole hito y, which he heard with an atteti
eve to amonement,--nd particularly at the wondorfol
m0000 of my being fumisthed ith poviono aod
ammunitio; and indeed, a. my story is a whole l-
lection of wonder, it afectd him deeply. But whe
he reflected from thence upon himself, and how I seemed
to hre been preserved thee on propose to sae his life
the tears ran down hi face, and he would not speak
word more. After this ammunition was at a end
I carried him and hi to men into my apartment,
leading them in just where I came out, vi.,t the to
of the bohse, where Irefreshed them with such proviio
as I had, ad showed them all the contri. ae I had
made during my long, long inhabiting that place.
* All I showed them, all I said to them, was pieectly
making; but above all, the aptoain admired my fortif-
atien, ad how perfetly I had conceald my retreat
with a grove of trees, which, having been no plated
nearly twnty years, nd the tree growing much faster
thaoin Englnd, w become a little wood, sothicthat
it as impassible ion y pert of it but at that one side
where I had reserved my little finding pasege into it.
I told lim this wa myocatle and my resdene but that
I had a et in the country, a mot pines have, whither
I would treat npon oooaion, and I would show him
that too another time; but at present our business was
to o o recover the shp. He agreed with
me as to that, but told me he as perfectly at a lss
hat measures to take, for that there were sl si-ad-
twenty hands on board, who, having entered into a
cursed onspiracy, by which they had all forfeited their
lives tothe law, would be hdened in it now by des-
pertion, e would carry it on, noing that if they
ere subdued thy woud be brought to the gallows as
soon as they came to England, or to any of the Englih
colonies, and that, therefore, there would be no batting
thm with small a number e were.
I mused for some time upon what he had said, nd
found it wa a very rational oncluio, and that ther-
fore something was to be o ed on speedily, as well
to draw the men on board into some snae fortheir
surprise, as to prevent their I:ading upon us, and des-
troyin us. T n th:, it presently occurred to me that
in a little while the ship's crw, wondering what was
become of their comrades ad of the ot, would cer-
tainmly om on shore in their other boat to look for
them, and that then, perhaps, they might come armed,
d be too strong forus this he lloed to rational.
Upon this, I told him the first thing we had to do was
to stave the boat, whih lay upon the beach, that they
might not carry her off, and taking aerything out of
her, leave her s far useless s not to befit to swim.
Acordingly we went on board, took the arms which
were left on board out of her, and whatever else we
found there,-lwhich wota bottle of brandy, and mothe
of rum, a few biscuit-coaes, a horn of powder, and a
great lump of sugar in a piece of canv'(the sugar was
five or six pounds); all which was very welcome tome,
especially the brandy and sugar, of which I had had
none left for many yrs.
When we had ried ied ll these things on shlre (the
oars, mast, sail, ad rudder of the boat were carried
away before), we knocked a eat hole in her bottom,
that if they had come strong enough to mater us, yet
they could not carry off the boat. Indeed, it as not
much in my thoughts that we could be able to recover
the ship; but my view ws, that if they went amay
without the boat, I did not much question to make her
again fit to carry us to the Leeward Islands, and all
upon ur friends the Spniards in my way, for I had
them still in my thoughts.
While we ere thus preparing our designs, and had
first by main strenth hved the boat po the beach,
so high that the tide would not float her off at high-
water mark, and bides, hd broke a hole ino her bottom
too big to be quickly stopped and were set downmmusing
what we should do, we hmrd the ship fire a gun, and
make a waft with her ensgn a a ignal for the boat to
come on board: but no bot tired; and they hired
everl timee, making other signals for the boat. At
laot, hen all their signals ad firing proved fruitless,
nd they found the boat did not stir, saw them, by
the help of my glasse, hoist another boat out, and row
towards the shore; and we foed, as they approached,
that there were no as than en me in he, and that
they had firearms with them.
SAs the ship lay almost two leagues from the hore
we hd a full view of them as they came, and a plain
eight evmen of theit f ber=se the tide having set
them a little to the east of the other boat, they rowed
up under shoe, to come to the same place where the
other had landed, and where the boat lay; by this
mean. I my, we had a ful view of them, and the
mptain onew the pero and hrateo of .1a the men
in the boat, of whom, he aid, there wer thrbe em
honest fellow, who, be was re, were led into this
conspiracy by the ret, being ovrpoerd and fright-
cmed ; but that a for the boatswain, who it seem was

the hie offieer among them and all the rest they were
as outrageous any of the chip' crew, ma were no
doubt made desperate in their new enterprise; od
terribly apr hensive he mwa that they would be too
pooerfl for s I smiled at him,and told him that
men in or circnmstancea were pst the operations of
fear' that seeing Immt every condition that could be
wa better than that which we were supposed to be in,
we ooght to expect that the consequence, whether
death or lie, oold bo sure to be a deliverance. I
asked him what he thought of the circumstances of my
life, and whether a deliverao were not worth oventurming
for? And where, ir," said I," is your belief ofmy
being premerod hee onppoeto ave your ife, which
eleatod you a little hiao r my part," said I,
"there meems to be but one thing amiss in all the
prospertof it." "What is that?" sys he. "Why,"
aid I, it i that as you say there are three or four
hoe.st fellows among them, which should be spared.
Had they bee all of the wicked pert of the crew I
should have thought God' pmoidence had singled them
outto deliver them into yo hands; for depend pon
it, evemao that comes ashoe is our nd hall
die or li they behave to u" As I spoke h this with
a raised oi e and cheerful countenc, I found it
greatly encouraged him; so we set vigorously to our
We had, upon the first appearance of thie boats coming
from the ship, conoidored of epamrating our prisoners
and we had, indeed, secured them effectually. Two of
them, of whom the captain ws less assured than
ordinary, I sent ith Friday, ad one of the three
deliverd men, to my .ave, wher they owe remote
enough, and out of danger of being hea or discovered,
or of findin their way out of the woods, if they could
have delivered themselves: here they left them bound,
but gave them proivoinso; aud promised them, if they
continued there quietly, to give them their liberty in a
day or two; but that if they attempted their ieape,
they should be put to death without mery. The
promised faithlly to bear their oninement wi
patience, and were very thankful that they had such
od usage m to have provisions and light left them;
for Fridy gave them candle (such as we made our
selv) for their comfort; and they did not hkw but
that he stood sentinel over them at the ntranm .
The other prson"es ad better usage; two of them
were ept pinioned, indeed, beca o the ptin w not
able to trout them; but the other two mere taken into
my service, upon the captain's recommendation, and
upon their olomuly engaging to live and die with
so with them and them hree hoert men we were seve
men, well armed; and I made no doubt that we should
be able to deal well enough with the ten that were
emieg, considering that the captain had said there
e three orfor honest men among them also. A
oo as they got t the place whom their other boat lay,
thy their boat into the beach and me a on shore,
hauling the boatup after them, which I w glad to
ee, for I was afraid they would rather have left the
boat t nochor some distance from the shore., with
some hmds in her, to guard her, and so wo should not
be able to seize the boat Being on shore,the first thing
they did, they ran al to their other boat; and it w
easy to ee they were under a great urpi to find her
stripped ato of all that w. i her, and a great hole
in her bottom. After they had mused a while upon this,
they up two or three great shouts, hellooing withll
thir might, to try if they could make their ompanions
hear; but all to no purpose: then they cme all
lose in a ring, and fired a olley of their small arms,
whioh,indeed, we heard, cd the echoe made the wood
ring: but it was all one; thoe in the cave, wer er
uemuld not he; nd tho in our keeping, though
they heard it well enough, yet durst give no wer to
them. They wereso astoished at the surprise of this,
thnt, as they told u afterwards, they reolved to go al
board again to their ship, and let them know that
the men were a mrdered, and the long-boot staved;
dingly, they immediately launched their boat again,
got all of them on bard.
The captain was terribly amazed, and en con-
founded, at this, believing they would go on board the
hip gan, nd set sail, giving their omrade over for
lot, and so he hold atill lose the ship, which he was
Shops we should hv e recovered; but he wa quickly
au mch frightened the other way.
hey had not been long put off with the boat, when
e perceived thm all coming on sho again; but with
thi new measure in their condot, whih it seems they
onsulted together upo, vil. to leave threemen in the
bot, and the ret to go on shore, and go up into the
oentey to look for their fellow.. This w a great
diappointmnt to us f now we mower at loss what
to do, or seizing tho seve n men on shore would
be no advantage to f we let the bot escape; because
they would row aay to the ship, and thn the rest of
them mold be e to weigh nd et sail, and so our
reovering the chlp mold he lost. However, we had no
remedy but to ait and see what the isue of things

might present The seven m me o here, and th
three who remained in the bot put her off to good
distance from the hore, and came to :n anchor to wait
for them; so that it m impossible fur o to come oh
them in the boat The that cmne on shar kept
together, marching towards the top of the little hill
under which my habitation lay; and we would se them
plainly, though they would not perceive u We sounld
h een very gld if they would hove omoe necre to
u, so that we might hven fired at them, or that they
would have gone farther off, that we might come
abroad. But whm they were come to the brow of the
hill here they muld see a great ay into the valleys
and wooden, which lay toward the north-eat part, and
where the islad lay lowe the the otetd andmaiooteed
till they werm weary: and not oing, it mem, to
vent far from the shore, nor far fro one other
they sat doe together under a tree to mooider it. Hd
they thought fit to have gone to eep tere the
h part of them had done, they hd done the job
for ns; but they were too full of appeeheniom of
danger to venture to go to sleep, though they mold
not tell what the danger was they had to fear.
The captain made a very Just propona to me upon
this mosultation of their, viz. that perhaps they wuld
all fire a olley again, to endeavour to make their
fellows heard that hd that we hod all say pon them
just at the juncturm when their pieces were all dis.-
charged, and they would certainly yield, and we should
have them without bloodshed. I liked this popol,
provided it was done while e were na enough to
come up to them before they could load their picem
again. But this event did not happen; and w lay
still along tim, very irresolut what core to take.
At leth, I told them there would be nothing done, in
my option till night; and then,if they did notreta
to the boat, perhaps e might find a wayto get between
them ad the shore, and so might use some stratagem'
with them in the boat to get them on shore. We wted
a great while, though very impatient for their emov-'
ing; and were very uneasy, hen, after long consul-
totion, we mw them all start up, and march down
towards the sea: it seems they had -sch dreadful
appreheodons of the danger of the place, that they
rerlved to go on board theship again, give then
companions over for lost and s go n with then
intended voyage with the ohip.
As soon a I period them go towardsthe chme. I
imagined it to be ait rmlly s that they hd give
over their search, and ere going bcrk agan nd the
pti, as soon a I told him mythoughts, was ready
to sink at the apprehension of it: but I prmentl
thought of a stratagem to fetch them bch gin, can
which answered my end to a tittle. I ordered ddy
and the captain's mate to go over the little eok
westard, towards the place here the msang came
on tho when Fidoy mu remeod, and c om u they
came to a little trmg uond, at about half a ml
dista., I bade them hloo out, as lod as they ould
and wait till they found the seamen heard them; that
s sn a ever they heard the earme answer them,
they should reto ot again; and then, keeping out of
sight, take a roud, always answeing hen the other
halooed, to draw them s far into the islnd and among
tle woods a possible, and then wheel about again to
me by such ys I directed them.
They were lust going into the boat when Friday and
the te hallooed; an they presently heard them,
and, answering, ran along the shore westward, towards
the voice they heard, when they were stopped by the
crk, where, the water being up. they could not get
over,d tlled for the boat to come up and them
over; a, indeed, I expected. When they had et them-
selves oer, I observed that the boat being gone a goo .
way ito the creek, d, it were, in a abor within
the land,they took one of the tr men out of her,
to go 'ang with them, and left only two in the boat,

seemed to be a chain of wonders; that such things as
these were the testimonies we had of a secret hand of
Providence governing the world, and an evidence that
the eye of an infinite Power could search into the re-
motest corner of the world, and send help to the miser-
able whenever He pleased. I forgot not to lift up my
heart in thankfulness to Heaven; and what heart could
forbear to bless Him, who had not only in a miraculous
manner provided for me in such a wilderness, and in
such a desolate condition, but from whom every deliver-
ance must always be acknowledged to proceed.
When we had talked a while, the captain told me he
had brought me some little refreshment, such as his
ship afforded, and such as the wretches that had been
so long his masters had not plundered him of. Upon
this, he called aloud to the boat, and bade his men bring
the things ashore that were for the governor; and,
indeed, it was a present as if I had been one that was
not to be carried away with them, but as if I had been
to dwell upon the island still. First, he had brought
me a case of bottles full of excellent cordial waters,
six large bottles of Madeira wine (the bottles held two
quarts each), two pounds of excellent good tobacco,
twelve good pieces of the ship's beef,'and six pieces of
pork, with a bag of peas, and about a hundred-weight of
, biscuit; he also brought me a box of sugar, a box of
flour, a bag full of lemons, and two bottles of lime-juice,
and abundance of other things. But besides these, and
what was a thousand times more useful to me, he brought
me six new clean shirts, six very good neckcloths, two
pairs of gloves, one pair of shoes, a hat, and one? pair of
stockings, with a very good suit of clothes of his own,
which had been worn but very little: in a word, he
clothed me from head to foot. It was a very kind and
agreeable present, as any one may imagine, to one in
my circumstances; but never was anything in the world
of that kind so unpleasant, awkward, and uneasy as
it was to me to wear such clothes at first.
After these ceremonies were past, and after all his
good things were brought into my little apartment, we
began to consult what was to be done with the prisoners
we had; for it was worth considering whether we
might venture to take them away with us or no,
especially two of them, whom he knew to be incorrigible
and refractory to the last degree; and the captain said
he knew they were such rogues that there was no oblig-
ing them, and if he did carry them away, it must be in
irons, as malefactors, to be delivered over to justice at
the first English colony he could come to; and I found
that the captain himself was very anxious about it.
Upon this, I told him that, if he desired it, I would un-
dertake to bring the two men he spoke of to make it
their own request that he should leave them upon the
island. "I should be very glad of that," says the
captain, "with all my heart." Well," says I, I will
send for them up, and talk with them for you." So I
caused Friday and the two hostages, for they were now
discharged, their comrades having performed their
promise ; I say, I caused them to go to the cave, and bring
up the five men, pinioned as they were, to the bower,
and keep them there till I came. After some time I
came thither dressed in my new habit; and now I was
called governor again. Being all met, and tfe captain
with me, I caused the men to be brought before me, and
I.told them I had got a full account of their villainous
behaviour to the captain, and how they had run away
with the ship, and were preparing to commit further
robberies, but that Providence had ensnared them in
their own ways, and that they were fallen into the pit
which they had dug for others. I let them know that
by my direction the ship had been seized; that she lay
now in the road; and they might see by and by that
their new captain had received the reward of his villany,
and that they would see him hanging at the yard-arm;
that, as to them, I wanted to know what they had to
say why I should not execute them as pirates, taken in
the fact, as by my commission they could not doubt
but I had authority so to do.
One of them answered in the name of the rest, that
they had nothing to say but this, that when they were
taken, the captain promised them their lives, and they
humbly implored my mercy. But I told them I knew
not what mercy to show them; for as for myself, I had
resolved to quit the island with all my men, and had
taken passage with the captain to go for England; and
as for the captain, he could not carry them to England,
other than as prisoners in irons, to be tried for mutiny,
and running away with the ship; the consequence of
which, they must needs know, would be the gallows; so
that I could not tell what was best for them, unless they
had a mind to take their fate in the island. If they
desired that, as I had liberty to leave the island, I had
some inclination to give them their lives, if they
thought they could shift on shore. They seemed very
thankful for it, and said they would much rather venture
to stay there than be carried to England to be hanged.
So I left it on that issue.
However, the captain seemed to make some difficulty
of it, as if he durst not leave them there. Upon this, I
seemed a little angry with the captain, and told him that

they were my prisoners, not his; and that seeing I had
offered them so much favour, I would be as good as my
word; and that if he did not think fit to consent to it
I would set them at liberty, as I found them, and if he
did not like it, he might take them again if he could
catch them. Upon this, they appeared very thankful,
and I accordingly set then at liberty, and bade them re-
tire into the woods, to the place whence they came, and
I would leave them some fire-arms, some ammunition,
and some directions how they should live very well, if
they thought fit. Upon this I prepared to go on board
the ship; but told the captain I would stay that night
to prepare my things, and desired him to go on board in
the meantime, and keep all right in the ship, and send
the boat on shore next day for me; ordering him at all
events, to cause the new captain, who was killed, to be
hung at the yard-arm, that these men might see him.
,When the captain was gone, I sent for the men up
to me to my apartment, and entered seriously into dis-
course with them on their circumstances. I told them I
thought they had made a right choice; that if the captain
had carried them away, they would certainly be hanged.
I showed them the new captain hanging at the yard-arm
of the ship, and told them they had nothing less to
When they had all declared their willingness to stay,
I then told them I would let them into the story of my
living there, and put them into the way of making it
easy to them. Accordingly, I gave them the whole
history of the place, and of my coming to it; showed

captain to take them on board, though he hanged them
immediately. Upon this, the captain pretended to have
no power without me; but after some difficulty, and after
their solemn promises of amendment, they were taken
on board, and were, some time after, soundly whipped
and pickled; after which they proved very honest and
quiet fellows.
Some time after this, the boat was ordered on shore,
the tide being up, with the things promised to the men;
to which the captain, at my intercession, caused their
chests and clothes to be added, which they took, and
were very thankful for. I also encouraged them, by telling
them, that if it lay in my power to send any vessel to
take them in, I would not forget them.
When I took leave of this island, I carried on board,
for reliques, the great goat-skin cap I had made, my
umbrella, and one of my parrots: also, I forgot not
to take the money I formerly mentioned, which had
laid by me so long useless that it was grown rusty
or tarnished, and could hardly pass for silver till it had
been a little rubbed and handled, as also the money I
found in the wreck of the Spanish ship. And thus I left
the island, the 19th of December, as I found by the ship's
account, in the year 1686, after I had been upon it eight-
and-twenty years, two months, and nineteen days; being
delivered from this second captivity the same day of the
month that I first made my escape in the long-boat from
among the Moors of Sallee. In this vessel, after a long
voyage, I arrived in England the 11th of June, in the
year 1687, having been thirty-five years absent.

Languedoc and Gascony, all green and flourishing,
though, indeed, at a great distance, and we had some
rough way to pass still.
We were a little uneasy, however, when we found it
snowed one whole day and a night so fast that we could
hot travel; but he bid us be easy; we should soon be
past it all: we found, indeed, that we began to descend
every day, and to come more north than before; and so,
depending upon our guide, we went on.
It was about two hours before night, when, our guide
being something before us, and not just in sight, out
rushed three monstrous wolves, and after them a bear,
from a hollow way adjoining to a thick wood: two of
the wolves made at the guide, and, had he been far
before us, he.would have been devoured before we could
have helped him; one of them fastened upon his horse,
and the other attacked the man with such violence, that
he had not time or presence of mind enough to draw his
pistol, but hallooed and cried out to us most lustily.
My man Friday being next me, I bade him ride up, and
see what was the matter. As soon as Friday came in
sight of the man, he hallooed out as loud as the other,
" O master! "O master! but like a bold fellow, rode
directly up to the poor man, and with his pistol shot the
wolf in the head that attacked him.
SIt was happy for the poor man that it was my man
Eriy. for, having been used to such creatures in his
county, he had no fear upon him, but went close up to
himn and shot him: whereas, any other of us would
have fired at a farther distance, and would perhaps
either have missed the wolf, or endangered shooting
the man.
But it was enough to have terrified a bolder man
than I and indeed it alarmed all our company, when,
with the noise of Friday's pistol, we heard on both sides


the most dismal howling of wolves; and the noise,
redoubled by the echo of the mountains, appeared to us
as if there had been a prodigious number.of them; and
perhaps there was not such a few as that we had no
cause of apprehension: however, as Friday had killed
this wolf, the other that had fastened upon the horse
left him immediately, and fled, without doing him any
damage, having happily fastened upon his head, where
the bosses of tlg- Fridil had stuck in his teeth. But
the man was nrMst bur : for the raging creature had
bit him twice, once in the arm, and the other time a
little above his knee; and though he had made some
defence, he was just tumbling down by the disorder of
his horse, when Friday came up and shot the wolf.
It is easy to suppose that at the noise of Friday's
pistol we all mended our pace, and rode up as fast as
the way, which was very difficult, would give us leave,
to see what was the matter. As soon as we cane clear
of the trees, which blinded us before, we saw clearly
what had been the case, and how Friday had disengaged
the poor guide, though we did not presently discern
what kind of creature it was he had killed,
But never was a fight managed so hardily, and in
such a surprising manner, as that which followed between
Friday and the bear, which gave us all, though at first
we were surprised and afraid for him, the greatest diver-
sion imaginable. As a bear isa heavy, clumsy creature,
and does not gallop as the wolf does, who is swift and
light, so he has two particular qualities, which generally
are the rule of his actions; first, as to men, who are not
his proper prey (he does not usually attempt them,
except they first attack him, unless he be excessively
hungry, which it is probable might now be the case, the
g nd being covered with snow), if you do not meddle
with him, he will not meddle with you; but then you
must take care to be very civil to him, and give him the

road, for he is a very nice gentleman; he will not go a
step out of his way for a prince; nay, if you are really
afraid, your best way is to look another way and keep
going on; for sometimes if you stop, and stand still,
and look steadfastly at him, he takes it for an affront;
but if you throw or toss anything at him, and it hits
him, though it were but a bit of stick as big as your
finger, he thinks himself abused, and sets all other
business aside to pursue his revenge, and will have
satisfaction in point of honour;- that is his first
quality: the next is, if'he be once affronted, he will
never leave you, night or day, till he has his re-
venge, but follows at a good round rate till he
overtakes you.
My man Friday had delivered our guide, and when we
came up to him, he was helping him off his horse, for
the man was both hurt and frightened, when on a
sudden we espied the bear come out of the wood, and
a monstrous one it was, the biggest by far that ever I
saw. We were all a little surprised when we saw him;
but when Friday saw him, it was easy to see joy and
courage in the fellow's countenance: 0, 0, O 0" says
Friday, three times, pointing to him; O master! you
give me te leave, me shakee te hand with him; nw
make you good'laugh."
I was surprised to see the fellow so well pleased:
"You fool," says I, "he will eat you up."--" Eatee me
up! eatee me up!" says Friday, twice over again; "me
eatee him up: me make you good laugh: you all stay
here, me show you good laugh." So down he sits, and
gets off his boots in a moment, and puts on a pair of
pumps (as we call the flat shoes they wear, and which
he had in his pocket), gives my other servant his horse,
and with his gun away he flew, swift like the wind.
The bear was walking softly on, and offered to meddle
with nobody, till Friday coming pretty near, calls to


him, as if the bear could understand him, "Hark ye,
hark ye," says Friday, "me speakee with you." We
followed at a distance, for now being down on the
Gascony side of the mountains, we were entered a vast
forest, where the country was plain and pretty open,
though it had many trees in it scattered here and there.
Friday, who had, as we say, the heels of the bear, came
up with him quickly, and took up a great stone, and
threw it at him, and hit him just on the head, but did
him no more harm than if he had thrown it against a
wall; but it answered Friday's end, for the rogue was
so void of fear that he did it merely to make the bear
follow him, and show us some laugh, as he called it.
As soon as the bear felt the blow, and saw him, he
turns about, and comes after him, taking very long
strides, and shuffling on at a strange rate, so as would
have put a horse to a middling gallop; away runs Friday,
and takes his course as if he ran towards us for help; so
we all resolved to fire at once upon the bear, and deliver
my man ; though I was angry at him heartily for bring-
ing the bear back upon us, when he was going about his
business another way; and especially I was angry that
he had turned the bear upon us and then ran away;
and I called out, You dog! is this your making us
laugh? Come away, and take your horse, that we may
shoot the creature." He heard me, and cried out, "No
shoot, no shoot; stand still, and you get much laugh:"
and as the nimble creature ran two feet for the bear's
one, he turned on a sudden on one side of us, and seeing
a great oak-tree fit for his purpose, he beckoned to us
to follow; and doubling his pace, he got nimbly up the
tree, laying his gun down upon the ground, at about
five or six yards from the bottom of the tree. Ths bear
soon came to the tree, and we followed at a distance:
the first thing he did, he stopped at the gun, smelled it,
but let it lie, and up he scrambles into the tree, climbing

like a cat, though so monstrous heavy. I was amazed
at the folly, as I thought it, of my man, and could not
for my life see anything to laugh at yet, till seeing the
bear get up the tree, we all.rode near to him.
When we came to the tree, there was Friday got out
to the small end of a large branch, and the bear got
about half way to him. As soon as the bear got out to
that part where the limb of the tree was weaker,-
" Ha!" says he to us, "now you see me teachee the bear
dance:" so he began jumping and shaking the bough,
at which the bear began to totter, but stood still, and
began to look behind him, to see h6w he should get
back; then, indeed, we did laugh heartily. But Friday
had not done with him by a great deal; when seeing
him stand still, he called out to him again, as if he had
supposed the bear could speak English,. "What, you
come no farther? pray you come farther;" so he left
jumping and shaking the tree; and the bear, just as if
he understood what he said, did come a little farther;
then he began jumping again, and the bear stopped
again. We thought now was a good time to knock him
on the head, and called to Friday to stand still, and we
would shoot the bear: but he cried out earnestly, "0
pray O pray no shoot, me shoot by and then: he
would have said by and by. However, to shorten the
story, Friday danced so much, and the bear stood so
ticklish, that we had laughing enough, but still we could
not imagine what the fellow would do: for first we
thought he depended upon shaking the bear off; and
we found the bear was too cunning for that too; for he
would not go out far enough to be thrown down, but
clung fast with his great broad claws and feet, so that
we could not imagine what would be the end of it, and
what the jest would be at last. But Friday put us out
of doubt quickly: for seeing the bear cling fast to the
bough, and that he would not be persuaded to come
any farther, "Well, well," says Friday, "you no come
farther, me go; you no come to me, me come to you ;"
and upon this he went out to the smaller end of the
bough, where it would bend with his weight, and gently
let himself down by it, sliding down the bough till he
came near enough to jump down on his feet, and away
he ran to his gun, took it up, and stood still. Well,"
says I to him, "Friday, what will you do now? Why
don't you shoot him ? "-" No shoot," says Friday,
"not yet; me shoot now, me no kill; me stay, give
you one more laugh: and, indeed, so he did; for when
the bear saw his enemy gone, he came back from the
bough where he stood, but did it very cautiously, looking
behind him every step, and coming backward till he got
into the body of the tree; then, with the same hinder
end foremost, he came down the tree, grasping it with
his claws, and moving one foot at a time, very leisurely.
At this juncture, and just before he could set his hind
foot on the ground, Friday stepped up close to him,
clapped the muzzle of his piece into his ear, and shot
him dead. Then the rogue turned about to see if we
did not laugh; and when he saw we were pleased, by
our looks, he began to laugh very loud. "So we kill
bear in my country," says Friday. So you kill them ? "
says I; why, you have no guns."-" No," says he, no
gun, but shoot great much long arrow." This was a
good diversion to us; but we were still in a wild place,
and our guide much hurt, and what to do we hardly
knew; the howling of wolves ran much in my head;
and, indeed, except the noise I once heard on the shore
of Africa, of which I have said something already,
I never heard anything that filled me with so much
These things, and the approach of night, called us off,
or else, as Friday would have had us, we should certainly
have taken the skin of this monstrous creature off,
which was worth saving; but we had near three leagues
to go, and our guide hastened us; so we left him, and
went forward on our journey.
The ground was still covered with snow, though not
so deep and dangerous as on the mountains; and the
ravenous creatures, as we heard afterwards, were come
down into the forest and plain country, pressed by
hunger, to seek for food, and had done a great deal of
mischief in the villages, where they surprised the
country people, killed a great many of their sheep and
horses, and some people too. We had one dangerous
place to pass, and our guide told us, if there were more
wolves in the country we should find them there; and
this was a small plain surrounded with woods on every
side, and a long narrow defile, or lane, which we were
to pass to get through the wood, and then we should
come to the village where we were to lodge. It was
within half an hour of sunset when we entered the
wood, and a little after sunset when we entered the
plain: we met with nothing in the first wood, except
that in a little plain within the .wood, which was not
above two furlongs over, we saw five great wolves cross
the road, full speed, one after another, as if they had
been in chase of some prey, and had it in view; they
took no notice of us, and were gone out of sight in a
few moments. Upon this, our guide, who by the way
was but a faint-hearted fellow, bid us keep in a ready
posture, for he believed there were more wolves a-coming.

=irtoe, and make my coort to the -e by the fattry
of a fual sermon. heo wa, i a few words the ty
of allmy aahr; the emtr of all my eterprises; the
engine that, by her prdene, reduced me to that happy
compass I was in, from the most extravagant and
ruinou project that filled my head, and did mom to
de m rambling genius than mothers t ,
fate nstrtion, a friend's counsel, r all my own
reasoni power could do. I w happen lstning to
her, and 0n being moved by her entreatie ; and to the
last degree desolate and diocatd in the world by the
loss of her.
When she wa gone, the world looked awkwadly
round me. I was much a trainer in it, in my
thoughts, -a I was in the Br alst when I first went
on shore there; and as mch alone, pt for the
assiastnc of servants, as I was in my iad. I kneo
neither what to think, or what to do. I saw the world
busy around me: one part laboring for bread, another
part squandering in vle excess or empty ploeoso,
but equally miserable because the end they propose
still fled from them; for the men of pleasre every
day surfeited of their vice, and heaped up work for
sorrow and repentance; and the men of labour spent
their tregt m daily struggling for bread to maintain
the vital strength they labored with: so living in
daily circuation of sorrow living but to work, and
working but to live, as if daily bread were the only nd
of wearisome life, and a weariome life the only oca-
sion of daily bread.
This put me in mind of the life I lived in my
kingdom, the island; where I suffered no moe core to
grow, because I did not want it; and bred no more
goats, because I had no more use for them: where the
money lay in the drawer till it grew mouldy, and had
the favour to be looked upon in twentyyear.
All these thin ghad I improved them as I ought to
have done, and as reason and religion had dictated to
me, would have taught me to search farther than ma
enjoyments for a full felicity; and that there was
something which certainly was the reason and endof
lif, superior to all these things, and which was either
to be poseamed,or at least hoped for,on this side of the
But my sage counsellor was gone; I was like a ship
without a pilot, that could only run afore thewind. My
thoughts an all awa aan into the old affair; my head
was quite turned with t whimseys of foreign adven-
tures ; and all the pleasant, innocent am months of
my form my garden my attle, and my family, which
ore entirely possessed me, were nothing to me, had
no relsh, and ere like music to one that h no ear, or
fued toooeththt has o taste. In a word, I resolved to
I..re off house-keeping, let my farm,ad return to
London and in a few month. after I did so.
When I came to London,I ws still s uneasy as I
was before; I had no relisl for the place no employ-
met in it, nothing to do hobut to saioter about like an
idle person, of whom it may be said h is perfectly
uselese in God's creatioon, annd it is net one farthing's
matter to the rest of his kind whether h be dead or
alive. This also was the thing which, of all cicm.
stances of life, was the moot my aversion, who ha
been all my days used to on activelife; andI would
often my to myself," A state of idlene is the vey
dregs of life;" and, indeed, I thought I was much mo
u mtblhlemployed when I was twenty-i days making
deal hoerd.
It was now the beginning of the year 1693. when my
nephew, whom,as I have observed before, I had brought
up to the seo, and had made him commandler of a ship,
was come home from a short voyage to Bilboa, beog
the first he had mde. He came tome, and told me
that some merchants of his acquaintance had been pro-
posing to him to go a voyage for thm the East
Indies, and to China, as private traders. "And now.
unle," sayshe."if you will go to sea with me, I will
engage to laud you upon your old habitation in the
island; for we are to touh at the Brazils."
Nothing can be a greater demonstration of a future
state, and of the existence of an invisible world, than
the omnrrence of second causes with the ide of things
which we form in our minds, perfectly reserved, and
not communicated to any in the world.
My nephew knew nothing how far my distemper of
wandering ws returned upon me, and I knew nothing
of what he had i his thought to say, when that very
morning, before hecame to me, I had,in great deal
of confuion of thought, and evolving every port of my
cirumstances inmy mind, ome to this resolution, that
I would go to Lisbon, and consult with my old e-
captain; and if it was rational and practiable, I would
go and see the island gin, and what wo become of my
people there. I had pleased myself with the thoughts
of peopling the ple, and ocrylng inhbitas from
hence, getting a patent for the poaeon, and I know
not what; when, inthe middle o all this, i comes m
nephew. a0I hae maid, with hio projool of rarryiyg mt

Inaword,the schme hit so exactly with my bempr,
that it to ay, the peposesion I a under, and of
which I havesid so much, that I told him, in a few
words, if he agreed with the memhants, I would go
with him; hbut Itold him I wold not promise to go
ty further thanmyowninand. Why, sir," ays he,
"you don't want to be left there again, I hope ?"
"Bt," said I. "can you not take me up again 00 you
return? He toldme it would not be poasibl to do
so; that the merchants would never allow him to come
that y with a laden lship of sh value, it being a
month's sil out of his way, and might be three o
four. Beside, sir. if I should bisarrye," aid he,
"and not return at all, then yn y woldbe ost reduced
to the condition you mwere in before."
This wao very otional; but we both found out a
remedy for it; which was to cary framed sloop on
board the ship, which being taken in pies, might, by
the help of some oarpentder, whom we agreed to carry
with us, e set up n in the island, and finished fit
to go to sea in a few days. I wa not long resolving;
for, indeed, the importunities of my nephew joined o
effeetoally with my inclination, that nothing cou
oppose me; on the other hand, my wife being dad,
none concerned themselves so much for me as to
persuade me to one way or the other, exceptmy aniet
good friend the widowr, who arnestly struggled with
me to consider my years, my easy ircumstaces, and
the needless hazard of a long oyas e; and above all,
my young children. But it wa all to no purple: I
had an irresitible desire for the voyage; and I told
her I thought thee was something so uncommon in the
impresonsa I had upon my mind, that it wold be
kind of resisting Prvidene if I should attemptto st
at home; after which she ceased her expotulatiors
and joined with me, not only in making provision for
my voyage, but also in settling my family ffairs for my
absenr and providing for the education of
children. In order to do this, I made my will, a
settled the estate I had in such a manner for mo
children, andplaced in such hands, that I na perfectl
Iay and tstifted they would have t done them,
whatever might befall me; and for their eduatio, I
left it wholly to the widow, with a sufcient main-
tenanc to herself for her care: all which she richly
deserved; for no mother cold have taken m are
in their education, or understood it better: and s shea

My nephew was ready to sal about the beginning of
Jnuaey, 194-5l; and I, with my man Friday, went on
board, in tbe Downs, the 8th; having, besides that
sloop which I mentioned above, very considerable
argo of all kinds of necessry things for my roloy;
whi oh, if I did not find in good condition. I resolved to
leave so.
Pirt, I carried with me some -rnrts whom I pur-
posed to place them as inhabitants, or at lent to set
on work there upon my account, while I stayed and
either to leave them them or car rythem forward,
they should appear willing: particularly I carried two
carpentrs, a smith, and a very handy, ingoiouo fellow.

make of earth or of wood: in word, we called him
our Jck-of-ll-trdes. With these I carried a tailor,
who had offered himself to go a passenger to the East

appeared at W.N.W. Upon this, we cooled it moe

noise of guns just before, we claded thatit would not
be far off, we stood directly towards it, and were re-
aenrly matited we should discover it, because the
further we sailed, the greater the light arpeand;
though the weather being hazy, we ould not peceive
anything but the light for a while. In about half

had saved some money and some things of nvle in
their hot, caught hesty out of the flames adn if we
would sacept it, they were ordered to make an offer of
it alltous; they only desired to be t onshora some-
where in our ay, where, if poible, they might get
psasge to Franes. My nephew wisLhed to pt their
money at ftit word, and to ecnider what to do with
themafterwards; but I ovenled him in that prt, for
I inew what it s to be st so shore in a stane
ornty; and if the Portugueseaptin that too me up
atsea had esed me sand taken all I had for m

a slave at tae Brazil as I had been at Barbary, the mer
being sold to a Mahometa escepted; and perhaps a
Portuguee is not amuh better masterthan a Tur, if
not, in some Ms muh worse.
I therefore told the French captain that we had taken
them up in their dress, it wa true, bt that it was
our duty to doeo, we were fellow.-estures; and we
would desire to be o delivered, if we we rin the like
or ny other extremity; that we had done nothing for
th buwht we believed they would have donor for
us, if we had been in their se, and they in our; but
th them up to save them, not to plunder
them; and it would be a most barbrous thing to take
that little from them which they had saved out of the
fire, and tlen set them n shoreand leave them; that
this would be frst to save them from death, and then
kill them noumelues: ve them from dremnig. and
abandon them to staring ; and,thrfore, I would not
let the lest thing be taken from them. As to setting
them on sre, I told them, indeed, that as an eeeed
ing de cult to us for that he ship wa bound tohe
Rast Indies; and though we were driven out of our course
to the westward a very gretway, s d perhaps wero
directed by Heven an purpose for their deliera yet
it wA impossible for wilfully tochabge or voyage
on their prti6lar eusnt; nor could my nephew, the
captain, wanser it to the freighters, with whom he we
under chapter to pursue his voyage by way of Brazil;
and all I knew we could do for them was, to put our
selves in the way of meeting with other ships homrward
bound from the West Ildie, and get them a passage,
if osible, to England or France.
The firt part of the proposal was so generous and
kind, they could not but b very thankful for it; but
they were in very great onsteiaMion, epecially the
passengers, at the notion of being carried away to the
East Indies; they then entreted me, that e I woa
driven so far to the westwrd before I met with them,
I would, at least, keep on the same course to the Banks
of Newfoundland, where it was probable I might meet
with sme ship or sloop that th hi to carry
theen back to Canada.
I thought tllis was but a reasonable request on their
part, nd therefore I inclined to gre to it; for,
mdeed, I considered that to carry this whole company
to the East Indies, would not only be an intolerable
severity upon thepoor people, but would be ruisining
or whole voyage, hy devouring all our proviion; so I
thought it no breach of charter-party. but what an un-
foseen accident made absolutelyecessry to us. and
in which no one could y we ere to blame; for the
laws of God Vnd nature would have forbid tlit we
should refuse to take up two boats full of people in
such a distressed condition; and the nature of thie
thing, as well respectiug ourselves the poor ioile,
obliged us to set them on shore somewhere or oterfo
their deliverane. So I eonsentad that wo would carry
them to Newfoundlaud, if wind snd wether would per
mit; and if not, that I wold earry them to Martnio,.
in the West Indies.
The wind continued fresh easterly, but the weather

Aboat two days after this they bad the father ati.
faction of seeing three of the sauge, mce come
driving a shore, ad, at some distance from them, two
drowned me, by which they had reson to believe that
they had met with a storm at sea, whih had overset
some of them; for it had blo very bud the night
after they went off. However, u some might miscarry,
O, on the other hand, ough of them esupede to inrm
the rest s welot of what they had done I of what had
happened to them; and to whet them on to sothe
enterprise of the same nature, which they, it smm,
resolved to attempt, with asuffldeint force to carry all
before them; for except what the first ma ha told
them of inhabitants, they could say little of it of their
oa knowledge, for they ver mw one man; d the
fellow being killed that had affirmed it, they had no
there whites to confirm it to them.
It w five or six months after this before they heard
may moea of the ravages, in which time our men were
in hopes theyhad either forgot their form bad lck,
or given oer hopes of better; when, oa a sdden,
they wee invaded with a most formidable feet of no
less than eght-sd-twety canoes, full of saves,
armed with boes ad arows, great cluba woode
swords, and oh like enginesof w ;ar d theyheught
such numbers ith them, that, in short, it put all or
people into the utmost consternation.
As they ame on shore in the evening, and at the
easternmost side of the island, our men had that night
to onsult and oe ider what to do. Inthe firat place,
knowing that their being entirely concealed wee their
only safety before, and would be much more so now,
while the number of their enemies would he so great,
they resahed, irst of all, to take dowa the hats which
were built for th ttwo Englishmen, and drive away their
goats to the old ave; because they supposedthe svuges
would go directly thither, a oon a it as day, to pty,
the old game over again, though they did not now lnd
within two leagues of it. nlathe next place they drove
away ail the flocs of goats they had at the old bower,
: Illed it, which belonged to the Spanirds; end, in
laort, left as little appearance of inhabitants anywhere
;weeas poible; sd the next morenig erlythey pasted
themreles, with all their force, at the plantation of
the two mn, to waitfor their coming. As they guessed,
.. it happened: tese new invaders, lfing their caos
.:t the east end of the islad, came rangingalong the
.hore, directly towards the place to the number of two
hundred and fifty, a near as our men uld judge.
Our army wa but small indeed; but, that which ws
worse, they had not arms for all their number. The
whole a-eot, it seem, sted thus: first, as to men,
stventeen Spaniard, five Englishmen, old Friday, the
lhree slaves taken with the women, who proved very
f.ithfol, and three other aleve, who lieed with the
Spaniards. To arm these, they had eleven mukets, five
istels, three fowling-piece, five muskets, or fowling-
pi.re, which were taken byme from the mutinous sea-
men whom I reduced,two swords, and three old halberds.
To their slave they did not gie either musket or
fusee; but th had each a halbed, or a long staff, like
a quater-stafft with a great pike of iron, fastened into
,arh end of it, and by his ide a hatchet; also every one
uf our men had a hatchet. Two of the women would
hot be prevailed upon but they would come into the
fight, and theyhad bows and arrows, which the Spaniards
had taken from the savages when the first action hap-
pened, which Ihave spoken of, where the Indians fought
with one another; and the women had hatchets too.
Tie chief Spanmard, whom I described so often, aom-
mended the whole; and Will Athine, who, though a
dreadful fellow for wicedss, w a most daring, held
fellow, cmma.ded under him. The saeges came
forward lie lions; and ear me, which wa the orst
of their fate, had no advantage in their situation ; only
that Will Atkins, who nowproved a most useful fellow,
with six men, was planted just behind a mall thicket
of hushes, as an advanced guard, with orders to let the
firt of them peas by, nd then fire into the middle of
them, d as soon a he had fired, to make his erteat
snimbly rashe oldronnd a prtf the wood,and so
come in behind the Spaninrd, where they stood, having
athieht of trees before thm.
Wheu the mvagre me on, they ran struggling about
ery y in heaped, out of all manner of oder,nd
Will Atin let about fifty of them pass y him; then
seeing the astcome in a Wvee thick throng, he orders
three of his men to fire, having laded their msskets
with six or seven bullets apisee, about as big a large
istel bullets. How many they killed or woauded they
okew not, but the onsternton and sm prise in-
expreible ong the avges; they were frightened t
the last degree to hr h a dreadful oin, and e
their men killed, and others hurt, hut ee nobody that
did it; when, in the middle of their fright, Will
Atkins and his there three let fly agdn mona the
thike.st of them ;and in le then a minute, the fle
three being loadedagain, gave them a third volley.
Had Wilt Atins amd his me. eied hmedistefy,
oo they had fired, as they were ordered to do, m
had the ret of the body heea at hand, to have pored
in their shot contiumely,theo agea hae eefeta

routed; for the trmv that wa among them came
prinp~mtly ito thl t they wes killed by the gods
with thunder and l ing and d se nobody that
hurt them. Bet i ti staying to load agais,
discovemred the heat: some of the snoge who were at
a distance pying them, eame upon them behind; and
though Atns end his maen red at them alo, two or
three times, and killed a e twenty, retiring as fast as
they muld, yet they wooded Atkis himself, ad killed
one of his fellow ng man with their arws as they
did afterwards one Spniard, and one of the lndian
slave who same with the women. This lae was a
moet gallant fellow, and fought most desperately,
killing five of them with his own hand, having no
weapon but one of the armed staves anda hatchet.
Our men being ths had laid at, things wod ded, and
two other men killed, retreated to a rising ground in the
wood; and the paniards, after fing thr eevolleys upon
them, retreated also; for their number was so great
and they wre so desperate, that though abore fifty of
them were killed, and more than as m y wounded, yet
they he in teeth of our men, fearles of
danger, ead shot their arw like cloud ; and it was
observed that their wounded men, who we not quito
disabled, were made outrageous by their wounds, and
fought like madmen.
When our men repeated, the1 left the Spaniard and
the Englishman that were killed behind them: and the
images when they came up to them, killed them over
again a watched manner, breaking their ams, legs,
ad heads, with their clubs and wooden swords, hie
trae savages; but finding our mn were gone, they did
not seem inclined to pursue them, but drew themselves
p in a ring which is, it seems, their custom, and
shouted twice, in token of their victory; after which,
they hadthe mortifltion to e several of their wounded
men fall, dying with the more loss of bloed.
The Spaniard geormer having drawn hise little body
up together upon a rising ground, Atkins, though le,
was wounded, would have had them march nd charge
again altogether at one: but the Spaniard replid-
"Seigunio Atious, you m how their wounded men
eight let them alone till morning; all the wonded
meoon will be stiff and soe with their wounds, and faint
with the lao of blood; and so we shall have the fewer
to encage." This advice was good: but Will Atkins
replied merrily,"That is true, ignior, and so shall I
too; and that io the reason I would go on while I am
warm."-" Well, Seignior Atkhi," says the Spaniard,
Syou have behaved gallantly, and done your part; w
wdil fght for ou if yo nnot come on; but I thin it
best to stay till morning:" sothey waited.
But it was a clear m ight ght ht, d they fon
the srages in great disorder about their dead and
wounded men, and a great noise and hurry among them
where they lay, they afterwards reeled to fall upon
them in the night; especially if they could come to give
them but one volley hafor they were discovered, which
they had a fair opportunity to do; for one of the
Eagishmen in whae quarter it wa where the fight
began, led them round between the woods and the sea
side westward, and then tuaning short mouth, they came
so near where the thickest of them lay, that, before
they were an or heard, eight of them fired in am g
them, and did dreadful execution upon them; in half a
minute more, eight othem fired after them, perng i
their small shot in asuch a qantit, that abhdaea
were killed and wounded; and all this while they were
not able to see who hurt them, or which way to fly.
The Spaniards charged again with the utmost ex-
pedition, and then divided themselves into three bodies,
ad resolvedto fall in among them all together. They
had in each body eight perseaons, that is to sy, twety-
twa.,adt trom e men, who, by the ay, fought
desperately. They divided the remrms equally in h
arty, as well as the halberda and staves,. They would
harve had the women kept bech, but they said they were
resolved to die with their husbeand. Having thus
formed their little army, they marched out from among
the trees, and me up to the teeth of the enemy,
shoutig ad hallooin g lou they could; the svage
stood altogether, but were in the tmot
hearing the noise of our men from three s
together. They would have fought if they had seen use
for as Bsoa as we eama near enough to be seen, some
arows were shot, ad poor old Friday was woled,
though not dangeroly. Bat our me gave them n
time but running p to them, ed among them three
ways, nd then fel in with the bntt-enda of their
muscets, their swords, armed braves, and hatchets, and
lid about them so well, that, in a word, they set up a
dismal sreming and howling, flying to sae their lvem
which way oever they Id.

of them driven by the geothe e ea m high upon th
ihore that it srequld infinite toil to get them off; and
some of them wm even dhed to piees u gains the
beach. Or men, though glad of their vitory, yet got
little rest that night but having refreshd themselves
as well as they ould they resolved to march to that
part of the isand where the av where we fled, eand e
what posture they were in. This nemearily led them
overthe pla where the fight had been, and where they
found several of the poor ceatore not quite dead, ad
yet pe.t reverng life; a sight disgreeble enough to
generous minds, for a truly great man, though obliged
bythe law of battle to destroy his enemy, thkes no
delight inhis miery. Howev, there wa no need to
give any orders in this ase; for their own avages, who
were their srant, s thd the poor creatures
with their hatchets.
At length they came in view of the place wha the
more miserable remains of the sage' army lay, where
th y appeared about a hundred still ; their patre was
generally sitting upon the ground, with their ,ne up
towards their mouth,nd the head put between the two
hands, leaning don upon the knee When our men
ame within two musket-shot. of them, the Spniard
governor ordered two muskete to be fired, without ball,
to alarm them; this he did, that by their eountenan
he might hmow what to expect, whether they wre still
in heart to fight, or were so heartily beaten a to he
discouraged, and so he might manage acoedingty. This
stratagem took: for as sn a the avges heard the
first gun, and the flash of the second they started
up upon their feet in the gretest condemnation imgin-
ble; and as our men advanced swiftly towads them,
they all ran Meoaming and yelling away, with a ind of
howling noise, which our men did not undetuand, snd
helad never heard before; and thus they ran up the hills
into the country .
At first or me had much rather the weather had
been calm, and they had all gone away to ea; but they
did not then nsider that this might pmohbly have
been the occasion of their coming again suorh multi-
tudai s not to be resisted, or, at least, to come so may
and so oen, a would quite desolate the islead, sd
starve them. Wtll Atklns, therefeoe, wIo, notwith-
standing his wound, ept always with them, proved the
bet eousellor in this a: his adicas to tae the
advantage that offered, and step in between themand
their bats, and so deprive them of the mepoeity of
ver rretming any more to plague th island. They
conslted long about this; and some ware again it tfor
fear of making the retchs fly to the woods ad live
there desperate, ad so they should have them to hunt
like wild beasts, be afraid to stir out abot their buine.s
and have their plantations ontinally rifled, all their
tame goats destroyed, ad, in sh r, he reduced to a life
of ontinl distress.
WiU Athins told them that they hd better hve to do
with a hundred men than with a hundred nations; that
as they must destroy their boat, so they must destroy
the me,or be all of them destroyed themselves. In
a word, he showed them the necessity of it so plainly,
that they all came into it; so they went to work im-
mediately with the boats, ad getting some dy ood
together from a dead m ree, they tried to st some of
them on fe, but they w sowetthat they would not
burn; however, the fire so burned the upper part, that
it oo made them unfit for use at ea.
When the Indias sw what they were about, some of
theme woods, and naming o
near as they they euuld to our men, neeled down and
cried," Oa, O Waamokoa," sod some other words of
their lang tge, which none of the others undntnd
anything of; bat as they made pitiful gestures ad
strange noises, it was ay to understand they begged
to have their boats spared, and that tley would be egee,
sad never come there again. But oeu mm ere no

Bot eoollcting rhat hoM hd id ofmityie them by

returned it back upon him, and told him I granted all
that he hadidto be t, d his part very kind;
that I would direurte with the men opon the point
now, henI came to them; and I knew noon why
they should scruple to let him marry them ail, which I
knew well enough would be granted to be as athantic
and valid in Egldanod f the were married by one of
our own clergymen.
I then pressed him to tell me what wa the second
complaint which he had to make, acknowooledging that I
was very much his debtor for the first, and thanked
him hearty for it. He told me he would the same
freedom andplainness in the second, and hoped I would
take it a well; and this wm, that, notithtandi
these English subjects of mine, as he called them,
lived with these women almost seven years, had taught
them to speak Eglah, and even to ad it, and that
they were, as he perceived, women of tolerable under
standing, and capable of instruction, yet they had not,
tothis hour, taught them anything of the Christin re-
ligion-no, not so much as to know there was a God,
a worship, or in what maIner God s to be served, or
that their own idolatry, aod worhipping they knew not
whom, waa false nd aourd. This, he said, was nn-
montablo neglect, nd what God would certainly call
them to acoount for, nod perhaps at last take the work
out of their hands. H spoke this very affectionately
and warmly.
"I am persuaded says he,"had those menlived in
the vage country hence their wives came, the savages
would have taken more pains to have brought them to
be idolators, and to worship the devil, than any of
these men, sofar a In e, have taken with them to
teach the knowledge of the true God. No, sir" aid
he, though I do not 1nowonledgo yonr religion, e you
mine, yet we would be glad to see the devil's servants
and the subjects of his kingdom taught to know the
general principles of the Christian religion; that they
might, at least, he of God and a -edeemer, and of the
reurrection, and of a future state-things which we all
believe; btthat they might, atleat, be so much near com-
ing into the bosom of the true church thanthaey no
inthe public pmfeson of idolaty and deil-worship,"
I muldholdnolonger: Itook him in my arms and
embraced him eagerly. "Ho far," said I to him,
"have I been from understanding the moot esential
part of a Christian, viz. to love the interest of the
Christian chur,, and the good of other men's sools!
I scare have knomn whot belongs to the being a
Christian."- Oh,sir! do not say so," replied he; this
thing isnotyo fault."-" No," aid I; ut why did
I never lay ittoheart well as you "-" It isnotto
late yet," mid he; "be not too forward to condemn
yourself."-" But what n be donenow ?" said I: "yo
eeI amgoing away."-" Willyou give me leave to talk
with thee poor men about it?l"-"es, with all my
heart, said I "and will oblige them to give heed to
what you say too." As to that," said he," we must
leaie them to the mercy of Christ, but it is your business
to asoist them, encourage them,and instruct them; nd
if you give me leave, and God his blessing, I do not
ot but the poor ignorant souls shallbe brought
home to the greatcircle of Christioity, if not into the
particular faith we all embrace, and that even while
you stay here." Upon this I said,"I shall not only
give you leave, bt give you a thousand thanks for it."
I now pressed him for the third article in which we
were to blne. "Why,relly," ays he, "it is of the
samenatur It is about your poor avag, who ar,
as I may y, yo conered subjects. It is a maxim
ir, that is, or ought tobe received among l-Chrintins,
of what chorh or pretended church oever, that the
Christian knowledge ought to be propagated bl all
posible means, and on al possible occasions. It os on
this principle that our church sends misaionariea into
Peroai, India, and China; and that our clergy, even of
the superior ort, illingly engage in the most hzardouo
oyage, and the most dangerous residence amongst
murderersanid arberine to teach them the knowledge of
the true God, and to bring them over to embrahe the
Christian faith. No, sir, you have euch an opportu-
nity here to have six or seveu.nd-thirty poor avages
brought over from'a state of idolatry to the knowledge
of God, the Maker and Redeemer, that I wonder ho
you an pass such an occasion of doing good, which
is really morth the expense of a man's whole life."
I wa now struck dumb indeed, and had not one word
to y. I had he the spirit of true Christian eal fo
God ad religion before me. As forme, I had not o
much a entertained a thought of this in my heart before,
and I behe I should not have thought of it for lMe

When I came to Will Atkins's house, I found there
the young womn I hoao mentioned cbove, and Will
Atkins' wife, were become intimates; and this pr-
dent, religious young woman had perfected the work

four days after what I have related, yet the new-
haptial savage woman ws made such a Christian a I
hvl sdlom heard of in all my observation or con-
vertion in the world. It came et into mymind in
the morning before Iwent to them. that amongst all

The woman wo orprisdand wa like to have rm
into mistake thatnone of u wee aware of: for he
firmly believed Go had agent the book upon her
hubaond' petition. It wa true that providentioly it
wa o, and might be taken so in a onsequot sese;
but I believe it would haoe been oo difficult matter at
that time to have peosaded the poor woman to have
brlieed that an express messenger came fm Heaven
o purposetobriog that individual book. But it woa
too serious a matter to suffr any delusion to take
place, I turned to the young woman, and told her
we did not desire to impose npon the new convert inher
firet and more ignorant understanding of things, and
begged her to explain to her that God may be very
properly said to nwer our petitions, when, in the
course of his pmrovidne, such things are in a particular
manner broughtto pass a we petitioned for: but we
did not expect returns from Heaen in a miraculous and
particular manner, and it is a merey that it is not so.
Thi the young woman did afterwards effeothlly, so
thatther waanopriestrult ted bore; cd I should
have thought it one of the most unjustifible frauds in
the worldto hve hd it so. Butthe efft upon Will
Atiins is really not to be expressed; and there we may
ho sure tas no delusion. Sore o man ws ever more
thankful in the world for anything of its kind than he
Iwa for the Bible,-nor, I believe, never any man was
glad of a Bible from a better principle; and though he
ad been a mot pmrfligate creature, headstrong, furious,
nd desperately wicked,et this man ia a standing rle
to us all for the well instructing children, viz. that
parents would never give over to teach and instruct,
forever despair of the success of their endeavours, let
the children be ever n refractory, or to appearance in-
sensible to instruction; for, if ere God, in his
providence, touches the consciene of such, the force of
their education returns upon them, and tho early i
steuction of parents is not lost, though it may ha
been many year laid leep, but =omo time or other
they may find the beefit of it. Thus it woa with this
poor w a however ignorant ho was of religion and
Christian knowledge, he found he had come to do with
now more ignorant than himself, and that the leat
of the instruction of his good father that now
c.eto his mind was of use ot him.

some time. The thirdday, in the morning, after a
night of Ia-ne, nfused, and inoiaitent dreams,

and furio with hunger; ead I question, hod not my

I had been a mother, and had had a little child with

Among the rethe he Iupplie sent to my ten ants in

and five scales, about twenty-two hog among them,

All this cao arrived safe, and, an you may easily sup

mid; though, by sigso, I perceived some of them knew
not what woas t tme oaa he l Iwas so terrified
in my thought at this tgus attempt, that I could
not stay therebut went but went back to my own men, ad
resolved to go into the middle of the town, through the
fire, or whatever might be in the way, and pot an end
to it, cost what it would; acordingly, as I came baook to
my men, I told them my solution, and commanded
them to follow me, when, at the very moment, came
four of our men, with the boatewlin at their bhed,
vinhg over heaps of bodies they hod killed, all ove.re
with blood ad dust, ao if they womtod more people to
massacre, when our men hllooed to them as loud as
thy would halloo; nd with much ado one of them
mae them hear, that they knew who wo were, and
me up to us.
As soon as the boatswain saw ut hoa 0t up a hlloo
like a about of triumph, for having, as he thought,
mo!e help come; and, without waiting to hear me
"Captain," says ho,"noble captint I am glad you

action, and would not give us leave to speak a word.
At lot, raising my voice, that I might 0in00 him a
little," Barbarous dog!" said I, what a~m you doing ?

- Why, sir," ys he, "do you know what you do, or
wht theyhavodoao? If you wt a reason for what
we have done, como hither;" and with that he showed
mo the poor fellow hanging, with his that cut.
I confess I ws urged then myself, and at another
time would have been forward enough; but I thought
they had caused their rage too far, mnd remembered
Jab's words to his sons Simeon and Levi: Cured be
their ger, for itwas fir; andtheir rath foritwas
oruel." But I had now a new task ponmy nds; for
when the men I -arried with me saw the sight, as I had
done, I ad mueh to do to restrain them as I should
have bd with the others; nay, my nephew himself fell
in with them, and told me,in their hearing, that he was
only conceded for fear of the men being overpowered ;
nd as to the people, he thought not one of then ought
tolive; for they had all glutted themsrlvs with the
murder of the poor man, and that they ought to be
used like murderers. Upon the words, away rn
eight of my men, with the boatswain d his crew, to
complete their bloody wor; and I, seeig it quite out
of my power to restrain them, came away peosive aud
ad.; for I could not bear the sight, much less the
hoorible noise and 0 ries of the poor wretches that fell
into their hands.
I got nobody to come back with me but the super-
go and two men, and with theo walked back to the
boat. It w a vry great piece of folly in me, I
onfeo to vo.ture ack as it wre alone; for t s it
began now to bo almost day,and the alarm had run over
the cotLy, therm stood about forty mn armed with
lances md bows, at the little place where th twelve or
thirteen houe. stood, mentioned befo%.; but by naci-
dent I misd the lace, and camo directly to the
seaside, and by the thmo I got to the seaside, it was
broad day: immediately I took the pinnace mod went on
board, and sent her back to aoist the men in what
might happen. I observed, about the time that I 0cme
to the boat-side, that the fir was pretty well out, and
tho noi abated; but in about half ln hour afterI got on
board, I heoad a volley of our men's firarms, mod aw
a grt smoke. This, as I understood afterwards, a
our men falling upon the men, wh, a I said, stood at
the few houses on the wayof whom they killed sixteen
or seventee, and st all the house on fire, but did not
meddle with the women or children.
By the time the men got to the shore again with the
pinnace our men began to appear; they ame dropping
in, not in two bodies as they ent, but stealing he
nd there in such a manner, that a small for.e of
reoluto men might have out them all off. But the
dreed of them -w upon the whole country; nd the
men were surprised, and o frightened, that I believe a
hundred of them would have fle at tloe sight of but
five of our men. Nor in all this terrible nation was
there a man that made any osiderabl defence: they
were surprised between the terror of the fire and the
sudden attack of our mte in the dark, that they hew
not which wy toturnthemselves; forif they 1 done
way they were met by on party, if bah again, by
another: thatthey were esorywere knohed do0n;
nor did any of our men reive the least hurt, except
one that sprained his foot, and another that bad one of
his. hand burned

they knew it well enough; O they took no notice of my
dislike. The next day 0we t sail, 00 we n0ver h1nl
any more of it. Ou o men differed in the aoount of the
number they had killed; but according to the bhet of
thedeir atouts, put all tgethr, they filed or destroyed
about one hundred and fifty people, men, women, and
doildoen, and left not a house standing in the town.
Aa for the poor fellow Tom Jeffry, a he ws quite dead
(for his throat was so cut that his head was hl off), it
would do him no .0 -ice to bring him away; 0 thoy
only took him down from the tree wherho woa hoangin
by one hand.
Howevor 0ust our men thought this action I wa
against them in it, and I always, after that time, told
them God would blat the ge; for I looked upon all
the blood they hod that night to be murdor in them.
For though it is true that they had killed Tom Jeffry,
yot Jeffry as the aggsor, had boken the truce, n

just time to get off their boat. I began to upbaid them
with the jlot retribution of Hoave in this Ose; hut
tle boatswain very warmly told me, lie thought I went
further in my censures than I could sow any warrant
for in Scriptue; and referred to Luko iii 4, where
our Saviour iutiomtea that those men on whom the
Tower of Siloam fell wer not sinners above all the
aldlcons ; but that which put me to silence in the eas
was, that not ono of them fie men who were now lost
were of ths who went on are to tho e muao of
Madagascar, so I lways alad it, though our men could
not bear to hear the word masaere with any patience.
But my frequent preaching to them on this subject
had worse consequence than I expected; and the bo t-
sain, who hod been the head of the attempt, came up
boldly to mo one time, and told me he found that I
brought that affair ntinually upon the stage; that I
made unjust refletions upon it, and had ued the men

sure to be waylaid on every side -titat if oe should be
takenas it wore ranming away,we should even condemn
ouroelveo, and there would want no moe evidence to

who 1a hie wes of my mind, and that dwe ehood
certainly be taken. Tht danger a little startled my
ptoer, and all the ship's comopoy, and we imme-
diatoly roaolved to go away tothe oat f Tonqun,
and a on to the maot of Chino,--nd, pusuing toe
first design a to trade, find ome y or other to dipsao
of the hiped veoere be to o.se of the r-s o the
country, such aa wo could get. Thie wupprved of 0
the hbet method for our scrity ; and aEordingly we
steered away NI.NE. kheping above fifty leagues off
from thoe usuul oua to the f u tward. Tit, however,
put us to *oms inconvenience: for. fint, the witdos
when we ome thao t ditant e from the sios, seemed to
bo more s etlily against us, blowing almost trade,a
we call it, from theI E. and .N.E. o tdt we were
long while upon our voyage, and we wre but ill pro-
vided with victuuls for o long a run; and, what wse
still worse, thee was some danger that these Englih
and Dutch ship, whose bat pusued us, whereof a emo
were bound that way, might oves got in before us, and
if not, some other slip bound to China might havo
information of from them, and ptm.e us with the
-e vigour.
I moat confeo I wsa now very oney, and thought
myself, including the late esope from te long-bats,
tohave been in the moat dangerous condition that aver
Iwas in through my pest life; for whatever ill sirm= -
stoanea I hd en in,Iwa never punued for a thief
before; nor had I ever dons anything that meoitod.the
name of dishonest or fuoduleut, much le thievish.
I had chiefly been my own enemy, ors as I may rightly
say, I had been nobody's enemy but my own; but w
I wwofully emburuh ad; for though I was perootly
innoent, I ts in no ronditioo to make that innocence
appear ; and if I had been toen, it ho been nnder a
fsppo"sd guilt of the worst kind. T s mad me very
Mxouo to make an escape, though which ay to do it
I know not or what port or plero w would go to. My
partner endeavroured to eoourago me by deTcribing thI
vel port of that coast, and told me he wold put in
on the coast of Coclhin China, or the Bay of Tonquin,
intending afterward to go to Macao, whers a etmany
Europsan flunilire soitted,-snd particular y tho tu-
sionory priestsawho usually went thither in order to
their oIomg forward to China.
Hiths then we resolved to go; and, accordingly,
though after a tedious course, and verymuch stritened
for proviions, we aroe within sight of the roaot ry
early in the morning ; and pon reaction on the pt
Mrostonoe of danger wo were in, wo resolved to put
into a tmll river, which, boweser, had depth eonogh
of rate for s, aod to see if we old, either overlod
or by the sip' pin ne, ome to know what ship woe

I cannot refrain taking olimo herm what rflectios I
now had upeo the vt variety of my portloulr cir-

spent forty ye in a life of continual difculties, and
was atlot me, as it were, to th prt or haven which
Sll men drive at, i. to have rest nd plenty, should be
a volunteer in now sroro by my owon unhappy
choir; and that I, who had acapel so many dangrs
in my youth, bhoud now come tobo hand in my ohl
age, and in so remote a place, for a crime wzich I
w 0not in the least inclined to, moch lea guilty of.
After thme thoughts, something of religion would come
in; and Iwoold Mo msidering tat this seemed to me
to be a disposition of immediate Prvidene, and I
ought to look upon t and submit to it lsuch. For,
olthougl I was innocent am ot men, I was far from bei
innocent "a to my Maer; and I ought tolook in and
examine what other crim in my life were most obviro
to me, and for which Providerce might justly inflict
this punishm t o a retibution; and thus I ought to
submit to this, jut a I wold to a .hipwre. I ift had
pleaded God o have b ght uch a disasto r upon me.

they did our muntrymen there, and make tome of our
men, by extremity of torture, confess to crime they
never were guilty of,or or own themseles and all of Is
to be pirte, and Bo they would put uto dtli with a
formal appeura ce of justice. and tht they oiaht be
tempted to do this for the gain of our ship and cro,
worth altogether four or five thousand pound. )W
did not consider that the aptains of ships have no
authority to act thus; aud if wo had surndered

when they me to their county. However, if tlay

demand payment of the butcher who was the dgs

part of the farmer, ut the latter said, "Joking

house, it seems as if there was a wife in every comer.
This enraged the king, who said, "Fellow, you aro a

over his bharin, produced his money, cheating the

lingly" answered the little man; "you take the
trunk on yoar shoulder, I will raise all the bache
and nd carry them, and theyare certain the
heaviest." The giant teok the trunl on his shoulder,
but the tailor seated himself on a branch, and net
being able to look round, the giant unconsciously did
all the nork, carrying the little tailor into the bar-
gain. Then hr sat behind, as merry and wicked as
poeuihbe, whistling the aie of "Thrre Tailre, they
rode beyond the Gatesl"as if to carry such tree
were chlds play. The giant, however, after pro-
ceeding part of the way, found the burthen too heavy,
and could do no more, cryg out, Wat I must let
the tree fall I" The Zaor sprang nimbly off, seized
the tree with both arms, as f he had been carrying
it, and aid to the giant, "What a great fellow, and
not able to carry such a tre I"
They continued their wy together, and arriving
at a erry-tree growing by the wayside, the giant
seized thhe to oute tree, where the ripest fruit
hung, bent it down, gave it into the tailor's bhad,
and bid him eat away. But the little tailor wa
much too weak to old thetree down, therefore, hen
the giant let go, it sprang into the air, and the tailor
was carried aluft with it. When he had returned to
the ground unhurt, What is this ?" said the giant;
"have you not strength to hold such a bush as this?"
" do ot want for strength," replied the tailor; "do
you think that was any feat fur one who liad hit
seven with one stroke? I sp goverthe tree, because
the hunters down there are eshating in the thicket
spring over it, if you can." Thegiant made the
attempt, but remained caught in the branches, so
that the little tailor again claimed the advantage
over him.
The giant now said,'' As you are such a brav
fellow, come into our cave, and pass the night with
us." The tailor was ready, and followed hn tohe
rave, where he found several other giants seated by
the fire, each with a roasted sheep in his hand, of
which he was making his supper. The little tailor
looked around, and thought to himself, "It is much
more roomy here than in my workshop." The giant
pointed to bed, an told him he might tke pes-
sion of it for the night; but it was infintey too big
for the little tailor,so he would not lie in it, ut crept
into a corner. When it wa midnight, and the gant
supposed the tailor to be sound asleep, he toakrg

they all went out into the wood, quite forgeting the
tailor; therefore their astonishment may be con-
ceived when they saw him, shortly after, coming
towards them as unconcernedly and boldly a i
nothing had happened. Thining h would do
nothing les than slay them all, they ran away m
their fright, and the tailor saw them no more.
The little man then went on, and after travelling
a long time, he came into the courtyard of a r
palace, and feeling extremely weary, he laid hi lf
on the grass and fell asleep. While lying there,
people came, examined him on all sides, and read on
his girdle, Seven at one stroke "Ah aid
they, what does this great military heo want here
in time of peace -how powerful he must be So
they went to inform the king of his arrival, and
advised that, as he would be so useful and important
in case war should break at, that upon no account h
ohoild be allowed to depart The advice pleased the
king, and he sent oneof his courtiers to attend the
little tailors waking, and to offerhim employment in
the kings service The meenger accordingly stood
patiently waiting by the sleeper, until he stretched
himself and owned his eyes, then fulfilled his com-
mission. "am here for that purpose replied he,
" and am qiteready to enter the kng'sservice." He

ow, the ing's generals were very envious of the
little tador, anedished him a thousand miles away.
"What can be done?" sid they' "if we begin a
quarrel with him, and proceed to lows, his strokes
fall l on and say r at once-we cannot
sunbat to this;" they took their resolution, went
n a body to the kg, and demanded their dismissal.
"We are not calcated," said they, "to stand on the
same footing as a man who kill seven at one blow I"
The king was very story when he found that for the
sake of one man all his old and faithful servants

would lave him, wished that he had never beheld
the stranger, and would willingly have got nd of
him, but he did not dare to dismiss him, because he
feared he would kill him and all his people, andthen
take possession of his kingdom. He reflected long
upon the means of getting ot of the difficulty, and
at last thought of the following. He sent to the
little talor to inform him that, in consideration of
his great fame a hero, he wa about to make the
following proposal to him:-In a large wood in his
dommnons lurked two giants, who committed great
devastation, murdering and robbing i all direction.
No one dared, without risk of his life, to oplopo or
even come into their presence; but d he would con-
quer and kill these giants the king would bestow
upon him his only daughter's had, with half the
kingdom as a dowry; a hundred horsemen should
attend hn on his expedtion, and be ready to assist
him. "Well," thought the tailor, for such a one as
I, beautiful king's daughter and half a kingdom is
no bad thing-I do not have such an offer every day "
So he replied, I will soon overcome the giants, and
do not require the hundred horsemen. Sr I. I
am able to settle seven at one stroke, In J
fear t o ?"
The little tailor set out, followed by the hundred
horsemen; but at the edge of the wood he said to
them, "Wait here for me, I shall be better able to
encounter the giants alone." Then springing nto
the wood, he looked about him right and left, and
after awhile discovered the giants; they were lying
sleep under a tree, and snored so loud that all the
boughs quivered and shak. The httle tailor losing
no time, filled both pockets with stones, and then
ascended the tree; he then placed himself upon the
branch directly over the sleepers, and let one stone
after another fall upon the breast of one of the
giant. The giant sputtered d grubled for some
time, at last he awoke, pushed his eompanio, mid
id to him, What do you hit me for?" "You ar
dreaming?" returned the other; "I have not hit
you." They laid themselves down gain, and the
tailor this time threw a stone on the second giant.
* What is that ?" cried ho; what are you throwing
at me ?" I am not touching you," sacd the other;
"you are dreaming." Thy grumbled andquarrelled
for some time, but bth being tired, theygradually
ceased, and their eyes closed once more. The tailor
began gain, picked out the biggest stone, and hit
the firt giant on his chest cith all his might
"Thisis too bad !" sid be, spring up like aad-
man, and attacking his companion; the latter de-
fended himself in a rage, and their fury increased so,
that tey tore up tree, and fought therewith until
they bth lay dead on the ground. The tilor
now descended from his lurkng-place. "What
a piece of good fortune," aid he, "that they
did not tear np the tree in which I was
seated, or I must have leaped away like a
squirrel I" Drawng his word,he struck two or three
violent blows on the breast of each, and then went to
the horsemen, saying, "The work is done, both are
wounded to death, but I have had hard work; for in
their distress they tore up the trees to defend them-
selves; but that is all in van when one comes like
myself, who hits seven at one blow." "Are you not
wounded?" inquired the horsamen. That would
be flnel" answered the tailor, "not a hair is
touched." The hoememn, however, wer perfectly
incredulous, and rode into the wood. There they
found the giants swimming in their blood, and al
around lay the trees torn p by the routs.
The httle tailor now claimed the promised reward;
but the king repented of his promise, and considered
afrsh howhe could get rid of the hero. Before
yoU marry my daughter, and obtain half the king-
dom," said r, "you must perform another feat
You must capture a unicorn which rs wild in the
wood, and commits great injury." "I fear the
unicorn leas than I did the two giants; seven at one
stroke a my motto." Taking a cord and an axe, he
departed instantly in search of the unicorn, bidding
his attendants wait outside the wood He had not
long to see, the creature soon appeared, and sprang
opoen the tailor instantly, as if to thrust him through
without loss of time. "Softly, softly," aid the
latter, not so fast;" avoiding the charge, rag
nimbly behind a tree, and the creature, light
changmg his direction, ran with violence against the
tree, m ng his horn in the trunk so fi ly that it

resisted all his efforts to extricate it, and was these a
prisoner. "The bird is mine," said the tilor, and
coming round the tree, be first fastened the cod
round the unicor's neck, then with his axe released
the hob from th trk of the tree, and all beig in
order, led bis captive to the king.
The king, however, would not yet bestow the
promised recompense, and required a third proof of
his eociuge before he concluded the amarrige. The
tailor must catch a wild boar which committed grt
depredations, and he should have the ansistanc of
the hunters. Well," said the tailr, thatis child'
lay, let us go at once but he would not take the
hutes with him, at which they were uuel con-
tented, for the wild boar had already given them such
a rceptuon that they were not very anxious to
encounter him again. When the annual perceived
the tailor, he rushed towards bmla uth tlsks gleam-
ig and foaming with rage, in order to bear im to
the ground; but the little tailor was too quick for
hi, and ran into sall chapel that was nar, cap-

It was too heavy to be able to jmp hogh the
undow as the tailor had done. The ahntern ero
called to se te i captive w ith their own eyes; ut
the hero went at once to the king, who, whether ho
would or no, ws now spelled to keep his promise,
and deliver up both his daughter and half hib ktng-
dom; and cold he havo imagined that his onin-aw
as little tailor, doubtless e would have felt still
more reluctant The marriage, however, was cole.
berated with much magnficence and no small
rejiing, and a king made out of a tailor.
After a tiae the young queen heard her conrt

enlightened her as to the birth of the young man,
and she complained to her father the next day,
entreating his asistnce in setting her free from he
husband, who was, she was sure, nothing but atalor.
The king omforteld her as well as he washable, and
bid her leave her door open the next night "My
servants shall wait without," said he, "until he is
asleep, when they will bind and carry hlm on board
a vessel, and yo shall be troubledno more by him.
The young queen wa much pleased to hear this; but
the kin' armour-bearer,who hadhoardall, wasmuch
attached tothe young king, and discovered tohim the
plot Vey wll," repliedhe,"I will poiltheir plan."
Accordingly he went to bed as usual, and when the
een thought hslept,h softly arose and opened the
door, then returned to bed. But the little sailor had

these trousers, or I will lay the yard-measure over
your shoulders. I have slain seen with one stroke,
killed two giants, taken prisoner one unicor and one
wild boar, and shall I be afraid of those who ar
waiting there outside the chamber-door?" When
they heard the tailor speak thus, great fear seized
'pon them, they ran away, as f wild beats were
behind them, and not one would dare to return to
touch him. So the tailor lived the ret of his days
and died a king.

Toi wife of a rich ma once fell sick, and an she
felt her end was approaching, she called her only
daughter to her bedside, and aid, "Dear child, con-
tinue good and kind, and you w always be taken

maiden wnt every day to her mother's grave and
wet ov it, and contind god and ind. When
the winter came, white mantle of snow covered the
grave, but when the warmth of spring had mlted it,
the man took another wife. This wife brought two
daughters home with her, who were beautiful and
fair to look upon, but the reverse in dispaiion and
a sad time now began for the poor steechild. "t

and resolved accordingly. Before the house stood a

ascended to the wolf oi the roof, who snoffed and
peeped, and at last stretched oat his neck so far that
he lot his footing and began to slip: once on the

But such a treacherous act could not remain mn-

then, and when evening tme, put them down to the

nearly that pitch of exeelenee which belongs to a
well-roaeted fowl, and the gnest was looked for. At
length Peggy mid to her master, "If your visitor
does not oo come, I must take the fowls hem the
fire; but it is a pity they are not to be eaten now, for
they are done to a torm.' "Well," mid the master,
"I had better go and hurry my guest." When his
back was turned, Peggy took th spit from the fire,
saying, "It maes one very weam to and ad bate

down, with a jug in her hand, she filled it, and say-
g, God bls yoo, Peggy l" took a good portion
of its content. "One dranoght makes you long for
another," said Margaret, and another instantly fol-
lowed. She then returned to the kitchen, and bast-
ing the fowls with some better, she began agin to
turn the spit; but the odour of the rating fowls
was so tempting, that, thinking to herself, "I won-
der if anything is wanting to improve the flaor "
she touch thd em with her fingers, which she then
licked, and said," Ecellent ow good they are; it
is asin and a shame they should not be eaten jst as
they are ready!" Peggy's anxiety led her to
the window, to discover if the guest and her master
were approaching, bet seeing nothing of them, she
again contemplated the fowl, saying, "One wing
burns already-it wonld be better for me to eat it
which she accordingly did, after cutting it off;
and finding it very good, she said, "The other

seem likely to come; perhaps they have gone some-
where else. "Well, egg," continued she, "be
merry for once; you have begun npon one-take a
little more wine, and finish it; yo will then be con-
tent. Good things ought not to be wasted!"
Following her own platble dvice, another visit was
then made to the cellar, and a good draught taken,
which gave her courage, as well as appetite to inish
the fowl. When that was picked, the master not
ha ing arrived, Peggy looked longingly at the other,
and oid to herself, "It seems a pity to separate
them-they were meant to go together; what is
right for one, is only just towards the other; and I
think that if I take another turn at the wine, and
then see what I can do, I am sure it cannot hurt
me." So Peggy went below, took hearty draught,
and the second fowl followed the first.
Having finished her very satisfactory meal, Peggy
heard her master return, who called out to her,
"Come, Peggy, be ick, my guest will be here
directly." "Verywe, master," replied she, "I am
ready." Her master then went to see if the cloth
were properly aid, and taking the caring-nife,
with which he proposed to operate upon the fowls,
he went to whet it pn the stone threshold While
he was doing so, the gest arrived, and knocked
politely at the house dor. Peggy ran to see who it
was, and when she perceived the visitor, she placed
her finger on her lips, saying, Hush, hsh I-depart
as quickly as you can; most unfortunate will it be if
my master catches yon; it is true he has invited you
to spper, but his intention is nothing less than to
cut of your two ears I Listen bow heis sharpening

rushed down the steps, and moved homewards with
all poible despatch. Peggy, not idle, rn screen

"Why, Peggy," returned her master, what do yon
mean?" "Truly," said Peggy, "he has snatched
the two fowls from the dish, asI was carrying them
np, and has run away with them." "What a fine
tick! said the master, who regretted the fowls, and
and was longing for his spper; he might have
left me one at least; what s to be done?" With
these words, he pursued the supposed delinquent,
having theknife sti h hand, exliming, "'aLet
me have one-only one," meaning that his guest
should leae him one fowl for is supper, and not un
away with both; but the person pursued thought
nothing ess than that one of his ear was wanted,
and therefore ran his best, in order to carry his eas
safely home.
