彩平分分彩平刷后2万能码刷后When they saw what their circumstances were, the first thing theyconcluded was, that they would, if possible, drive the savages upto the farther part of the island, south-west, that if any morecame on shore they might not find one another; then, that theywould daily hunt and harass them, and kill as many of them as theycould come at, till they had reduced their number; and if theycould at last tame them, and bring them to anything, they wouldgive them corn, and teach them how to plant, and live upon theirdaily labour. In order to do this, they so followed them, and soterrified them with their guns, that in a few days, if any of themfired a gun at an Indian, if he did not hit him, yet he would falldown for fear. So dreadfully frightened were they that they keptout of sight farther and farther; till at last our men followedthem, and almost every day killing or wounding some of them, theykept up in the woods or hollow places so much, that it reduced themto the utmost misery for want of food; and many were afterwardsfound dead in the woods, without any hurt, absolutely starved todeath.
分分彩平When our men found this, it made their hearts relent, and pitymoved them, especially the generous-minded Spaniard governor; andhe proposed, if possible, to take one of them alive and bring himto understand what they meant, so far as to be able to act asinterpreter, and go among them and see if they might be brought tosome conditions that might be depended upon, to save their livesand do us no harm.分分彩平刷后2万能码刷后分分It was some while before any of them could be taken; but being weakand half-starved, one of them was at last surprised and made aprisoner. He was sullen at first, and would neither eat nor drink;but finding himself kindly used, and victuals given to him, and noviolence offered him, he at last grew tractable, and came tohimself. They often brought old Friday to talk to him, who alwaystold him how kind the others would be to them all; that they wouldnot only save their lives, but give them part of the island to livein, provided they would give satisfaction that they would keep intheir own bounds, and not come beyond it to injure or prejudiceothers; and that they should have corn given them to plant and makeit grow for their bread, and some bread given them for theirpresent subsistence; and old Friday bade the fellow go and talkwith the rest of his countrymen, and see what they said to it;assuring them that, if they did not agree immediately, they shouldbe all destroyed.彩平

The threeIndian slaves carried them a large quantity of bread, some riceboiled up to cakes and dried in the sun, and three live goats; andthey were ordered to go to the side of a hill, where they sat down,ate their provisions very thankfully, and were the most faithfulfellows to their words that could be thought of; for, except whenthey came to beg victuals and directions, they never came out oftheir bounds; and there they lived when I came to the island and Iwent to see them. They had taught them both to plant corn, makebread, breed tame goats, and milk them: they wanted nothing butwives in order for them soon to become a nation. They wereconfined to a neck of land, surrounded with high rocks behind them,and lying plain towards the sea before them, on the south-eastcorner of the island. They had land enough, and it was very goodand fruitful; about a mile and a half broad, and three or fourmiles in length. Our men taught them to make wooden spades, suchas I made for myself, and gave among them twelve hatchets and threeor four knives; and there they lived, the most subjected, innocentcreatures that ever were heard of.分分彩平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.详情
