北京 The three fellows came down to the Spaniards one morning, and invery humble terms desired to be admitted to speak with them. TheSpaniards very readily heard what they had to say, which was this:that they were tired of living in the manner they did, and thatthey were not handy enough to make the necessaries they wanted, andthat having no help, they found they should be starved; but if theSpaniards would give them leave to take one of the canoes whichthey came over in, and give them arms and ammunition proportionedto their defence, they would go over to the main, and seek theirfortunes, and so deliver them from the trouble of supplying themwith any other provisions.
赛车I had perhaps not known this part, if my curiosity had not led me,the weather being fair and the wind abated, to go on board theship. The second mate, who upon this occasion commanded the ship,had been on board our ship, and he told me they had threepassengers in the great cabin that were in a deplorable condition."Nay," says he, "I believe they are dead, for I have heard nothingof them for above two days; and I was afraid to inquire afterthem," said he, "for I had nothing to relieve them with." Weimmediately applied ourselves to give them what relief we couldspare; and indeed I had so far overruled things with my nephew,that I would have victualled them though we had gone away toVirginia, or any other part of the coast of America, to havesupplied ourselves; but there was no necessity for that.北京pk赛车走势软件走势
软件But now they were in a new danger; for they were afraid of eatingtoo much, even of that little we gave them. The mate, orcommander, brought six men with him in his boat; but these poorwretches looked like skeletons, and were so weak that they couldhardly sit to their oars. The mate himself was very ill, and halfstarved; for he declared he had reserved nothing from the men, andwent share and share alike with them in every bit they ate. Icautioned him to eat sparingly, and set meat before himimmediately, but he had not eaten three mouthfuls before he beganto be sick and out of order; so he stopped a while, and our surgeonmixed him up something with some broth, which he said would be tohim both food and physic; and after he had taken it he grew better.In the meantime I forgot not the men. I ordered victuals to begiven them, and the poor creatures rather devoured than ate it:they were so exceedingly hungry that they were in a mannerravenous, and had no command of themselves; and two of them atewith so much greediness that they were in danger of their lives thenext morning. The sight of these people's distress was very movingto me, and brought to mind what I had a terrible prospect of at myfirst coming on shore in my island, where I had not the leastmouthful of food, or any prospect of procuring any; besides thehourly apprehensions I had of being made the food of othercreatures. But all the while the mate was thus relating to me themiserable condition of the ship's company, I could not put out ofmy thought the story he had told me of the three poor creatures inthe great cabin, viz. the mother, her son, and the maid-servant,whom he had heard nothing of for two or three days, and whom, heseemed to confess, they had wholly neglected, their own extremitiesbeing so great; by which I understood that they had really giventhem no food at all, and that therefore they must be perished, andbe all lying dead, perhaps, on the floor or deck of the cabin.北京北京pk赛车走势软件赛车As I therefore kept the mate, whom we then called captain, on boardwith his men, to refresh them, so I also forgot not the starvingcrew that were left on board, but ordered my own boat to go onboard the ship, and, with my mate and twelve men, to carry them asack of bread, and four or five pieces of beef to boil. Oursurgeon charged the men to cause the meat to be boiled while theystayed, and to keep guard in the cook-room, to prevent the mentaking it to eat raw, or taking it out of the pot before it waswell boiled, and then to give every man but a very little at atime: and by this caution he preserved the men, who wouldotherwise have killed themselves with that very food that was giventhem on purpose to save their lives.走势软件At the same time I ordered the mate to go into the great cabin, andsee what condition the poor passengers were in; and if they werealive, to comfort them, and give them what refreshment was proper:and the surgeon gave him a large pitcher, with some of the preparedbroth which he had given the mate that was on board, and which hedid not question would restore them gradually. I was not satisfiedwith this; but, as I said above, having a great mind to see thescene of misery which I knew the ship itself would present me with,in a more lively manner than I could have it by report, I took thecaptain of the ship, as we now called him, with me, and wentmyself, a little after, in their boat.
北京赛车I found the poor men on board almost in a tumult to get thevictuals out of the boiler before it was ready; but my mateobserved his orders, and kept a good guard at the cook-room door,and the man he placed there, after using all possible persuasion tohave patience, kept them off by force; however, he caused somebiscuit-cakes to be dipped in the pot, and softened with the liquorof the meat, which they called brewis, and gave them every one someto stay their stomachs, and told them it was for their own safetythat he was obliged to give them but little at a time. But it wasall in vain; and had I not come on board, and their own commanderand officers with me, and with good words, and some threats also ofgiving them no more, I believe they would have broken into thecook-room by force, and torn the meat out of the furnace - forwords are indeed of very small force to a hungry belly; however, wepacified them, and fed them gradually and cautiously at first, andthe next time gave them more, and at last filled their bellies, andthe men did well enough.走势详情
