手机 All this went on as I expected; and they told me, especially WillAtkins, who now seemed to speak for the rest, that they loved theirwives as well as if they had been born in their own native country,and would not leave them on any account whatever; and they didverily believe that their wives were as virtuous and as modest, anddid, to the utmost of their skill, as much for them and for theirchildren, as any woman could possibly do: and they would not partwith them on any account. Will Atkins, for his own particular,added that if any man would take him away, and offer to carry himhome to England, and make him captain of the best man-of-war in thenavy, he would not go with him if he might not carry his wife andchildren with him; and if there was a clergyman in the ship, hewould be married to her now with all his heart.
比分比分The first part of the proposal was so generous and kind they couldnot but be very thankful for it; but they were in very greatconsternation, especially the passengers, at the notion of beingcarried away to the East Indies; they then entreated me that as Iwas driven so far to the westward before I met with them, I wouldat least keep on the same course to the banks of Newfoundland,where it was probable I might meet with some ship or sloop thatthey might hire to carry them back to Canada.手机比分即时足球比分足球
手机I thought this was but a reasonable request on their part, andtherefore I inclined to agree to it; for indeed I considered thatto carry this whole company to the East Indies would not only be anintolerable severity upon the poor people, but would be ruining ourwhole voyage by devouring all our provisions; so I thought it nobreach of charter-party, but what an unforeseen accident madeabsolutely necessary to us, and in which no one could say we wereto blame; for the laws of God and nature would have forbid that weshould refuse to take up two boats full of people in such adistressed condition; and the nature of the thing, as wellrespecting ourselves as the poor people, obliged us to set them onshore somewhere or other for their deliverance. So I consentedthat we would carry them to Newfoundland, if wind and weather wouldpermit: and if not, I would carry them to Martinico, in the WestIndies.比分比分手机比分即时足球比分足球The wind continued fresh easterly, but the weather pretty good; andas the winds had continued in the points between NE. and SE. a longtime, we missed several opportunities of sending them to France;for we met several ships bound to Europe, whereof two were French,from St. Christopher's, but they had been so long beating upagainst the wind that they durst take in no passengers, for fear ofwanting provisions for the voyage, as well for themselves as forthose they should take in; so we were obliged to go on. It wasabout a week after this that we made the banks of Newfoundland;where, to shorten my story, we put all our French people on board abark, which they hired at sea there, to put them on shore, andafterwards to carry them to France, if they could get provisions tovictual themselves with. When I say all the French went on shore,I should remember that the young priest I spoke of, hearing we werebound to the East Indies, desired to go the voyage with us, and tobe set on shore on the coast of Coromandel; which I readily agreedto, for I wonderfully liked the man, and had very good reason, aswill appear afterwards; also four of the seamen entered themselveson our ship, and proved very useful fellows.手机比分比分From hence we directed our course for the West Indies, steeringaway S. and S. by E. for about twenty days together, sometimeslittle or no wind at all; when we met with another subject for ourhumanity to work upon, almost as deplorable as that before.
