星捕He then ran on in remarks upon all the little improvements I hadmade in my solitude: my unwearied application, as he called it;and how I had made a condition, which in its circumstances was atfirst much worse than theirs, a thousand times more happy thantheirs was, even now when they were all together. He told me itwas remarkable that Englishmen had a greater presence of mind intheir distress than any people that ever he met with; that theirunhappy nation and the Portuguese were the worst men in the worldto struggle with misfortunes; for that their first step in dangers,after the common efforts were over, was to despair, lie down underit, and die, without rousing their thoughts up to proper remediesfor escape.全民星捕鱼全民

星捕I told him their case and mine differed exceedingly; that they werecast upon the shore without necessaries, without supply of food, orpresent sustenance till they could provide for it; that, it wastrue, I had this further disadvantage and discomfort, that I wasalone; but then the supplies I had providentially thrown into myhands, by the unexpected driving of the ship on the shore, was sucha help as would have encouraged any creature in the world to haveapplied himself as I had done. "Seignior," says the Spaniard, "hadwe poor Spaniards been in your case, we should never have got halfthose things out of the ship, as you did: nay," says he, "weshould never have found means to have got a raft to carry them, orto have got the raft on shore without boat or sail: and how muchless should we have done if any of us had been alone!" Well, Idesired him to abate his compliments, and go on with the history oftheir coming on shore, where they landed. He told me theyunhappily landed at a place where there were people withoutprovisions; whereas, had they had the common sense to put off tosea again, and gone to another island a little further, they hadfound provisions, though without people: there being an islandthat way, as they had been told, where there were provisions,though no people - that is to say, that the Spaniards of Trinidadhad frequently been there, and had filled the island with goats andhogs at several times, where they had bred in such multitudes, andwhere turtle and sea-fowls were in such plenty, that they couldhave been in no want of flesh, though they had found no bread;whereas, here they were only sustained with a few roots and herbs,which they understood not, and which had no substance in them, andwhich the inhabitants gave them sparingly enough; and they couldtreat them no better, unless they would turn cannibals and eatmens flesh.全民全民星捕鱼星捕They gave me an account how many ways they strove to civilise thesavages they were with, and to teach them rational customs in theordinary way of living, but in vain; and how they retorted uponthem as unjust that they who came there for assistance and supportshould attempt to set up for instructors to those that gave themfood; intimating, it seems, that none should set up for theinstructors of others but those who could live without them. Theygave me dismal accounts of the extremities they were driven to; howsometimes they were many days without any food at all, the islandthey were upon being inhabited by a sort of savages that lived moreindolent, and for that reason were less supplied with thenecessaries of life, than they had reason to believe others were inthe same part of the world; and yet they found that these savageswere less ravenous and voracious than those who had better suppliesof food. Also, they added, they could not but see with whatdemonstrations of wisdom and goodness the governing providence ofGod directs the events of things in this world, which, they said,appeared in their circumstances: for if, pressed by the hardshipsthey were under, and the barrenness of the country where they were,they had searched after a better to live in, they had then been outof the way of the relief that happened to them by my means.全民星捕They then gave me an account how the savages whom they livedamongst expected them to go out with them into their wars; and, itwas true, that as they had firearms with them, had they not had thedisaster to lose their ammunition, they could have been serviceablenot only to their friends, but have made themselves terrible bothto friends and enemies; but being without powder and shot, and yetin a condition that they could not in reason decline to go out withtheir landlords to their wars; so when they came into the field ofbattle they were in a worse condition than the savages themselves,for they had neither bows nor arrows, nor could they use those thesavages gave them. So they could do nothing but stand still and bewounded with arrows, till they came up to the teeth of the enemy;and then, indeed, the three halberds they had were of use to them;and they would often drive a whole little army before them withthose halberds, and sharpened sticks put into the muzzles of theirmuskets. But for all this they were sometimes surrounded withmultitudes, and in great danger from their arrows, till at lastthey found the way to make themselves large targets of wood, whichthey covered with skins of wild beasts, whose names they knew not,and these covered them from the arrows of the savages: that,notwithstanding these, they were sometimes in great danger; andfive of them were once knocked down together with the clubs of thesavages, which was the time when one of them was taken prisoner -that is to say, the Spaniard whom I relieved. At first theythought he had been killed; but when they afterwards heard he wastaken prisoner, they were under the greatest grief imaginable, andwould willingly have all ventured their lives to have rescued him.

全民星捕They told me that when they were so knocked down, the rest of theircompany rescued them, and stood over them fighting till they werecome to themselves, all but him whom they thought had been dead;and then they made their way with their halberds and pieces,standing close together in a line, through a body of above athousand savages, beating down all that came in their way, got thevictory over their enemies, but to their great sorrow, because itwas with the loss of their friend, whom the other party findingalive, carried off with some others, as I gave an account before.They described, most affectionately, how they were surprised withjoy at the return of their friend and companion in misery, who theythought had been devoured by wild beasts of the worst kind - wildmen; and yet, how more and more they were surprised with theaccount he gave them of his errand, and that there was a Christianin any place near, much more one that was able, and had humanityenough, to contribute to their deliverance.全民They then gave me an account how the savages whom they livedamongst expected them to go out with them into their wars; and, itwas true, that as they had firearms with them, had they not had thedisaster to lose their ammunition, they could have been serviceablenot only to their friends, but have made themselves terrible bothto friends and enemies; but being without powder and shot, and yetin a condition that they could not in reason decline to go out withtheir landlords to their wars; so when they came into the field ofbattle they were in a worse condition than the savages themselves,for they had neither bows nor arrows, nor could they use those thesavages gave them.
