爰爱 The first thing they did was to cause the old Indian, Friday'sfather, to go in, and see first if he knew any of them, and then ifhe understood any of their speech. As soon as the old man came in,he looked seriously at them, but knew none of them; neither couldany of them understand a word he said, or a sign he could make,except one of the women. However, this was enough to answer theend, which was to satisfy them that the men into whose hands theywere fallen were Christians; that they abhorred eating men orwomen; and that they might be sure they would not be killed. Assoon as they were assured of this, they discovered such a joy, andby such awkward gestures, several ways, as is hard to describe; forit seems they were of several nations. The woman who was theirinterpreter was bid, in the next place, to ask them if they werewilling to be servants, and to work for the men who had broughtthem away, to save their lives; at which they all fell a-dancing;and presently one fell to taking up this, and another that,anything that lay next, to carry on their shoulders, to intimatethey were willing to work.
爰爱The prisoners now began to be a burden to them; and they were soafraid of their escaping, that they were once resolving to killthem all, believing they were under an absolute necessity to do sofor their own preservation. However, the chief of the Spaniardswould not consent to it, but ordered, for the present, that theyshould be sent out of the way to my old cave in the valley, and bekept there, with two Spaniards to guard them, and have food fortheir subsistence, which was done; and they were bound there handand foot for that night.爰爱你直播爰爱
爰爱When the Spaniards came, the two Englishmen were so encouraged,that they could not satisfy themselves to stay any longer there;but taking five of the Spaniards, and themselves, with four musketsand a pistol among them, and two stout quarter-staves, away theywent in quest of the savages. And first they came to the treewhere the men lay that had been killed; but it was easy to see thatsome more of the savages had been there, for they had attempted tocarry their dead men away, and had dragged two of them a good way,but had given it over. From thence they advanced to the firstrising ground, where they had stood and seen their camp destroyed,and where they had the mortification still to see some of thesmoke; but neither could they here see any of the savages. Theythen resolved, though with all possible caution, to go forwardtowards their ruined plantation; but, a little before they camethither, coming in sight of the sea-shore, they saw plainly thesavages all embarked again in their canoes, in order to be gone.They seemed sorry at first that there was no way to come at them,to give them a parting blow; but, upon the whole, they were verywell satisfied to be rid of them.爰爱爰爱你直播爰爱The poor Englishmen being now twice ruined, and all theirimprovements destroyed, the rest all agreed to come and help themto rebuild, and assist them with needful supplies. Their threecountrymen, who were not yet noted for having the least inclinationto do any good, yet as soon as they heard of it (for they, livingremote eastward, knew nothing of the matter till all was over),came and offered their help and assistance, and did, very friendly,work for several days to restore their habitation and makenecessaries for them. And thus in a little time they were set upontheir legs again.爰爱爰爱About two days after this they had the farther satisfaction ofseeing three of the savages' canoes come driving on shore, and, atsome distance from them, two drowned men, by which they had reasonto believe that they had met with a storm at sea, which had oversetsome of them; for it had blown very hard the night after they wentoff. However, as some might miscarry, so, on the other hand,enough of them escaped to inform the rest, as well of what they haddone as of what had happened to them; and to whet them on toanother enterprise of the same nature, which they, it seems,resolved to attempt, with sufficient force to carry all beforethem; for except what the first man had told them of inhabitants,they could say little of it of their own knowledge, for they neversaw one man; and the fellow being killed that had affirmed it, theyhad no other witness to confirm it to, them.
