福彩中国福彩投注网投注When the poor women saw themselves set in a row thus, and fetchedout one by one, the terrors of their condition returned upon themagain, and they firmly believed they were now going to be devoured.Accordingly, when the English sailor came in and fetched out one ofthem, the rest set up a most lamentable cry, and hung about her,and took their leave of her with such agonies and affection aswould have grieved the hardest heart in the world: nor was itpossible for the Englishmen to satisfy them that they were not tobe immediately murdered, till they fetched the old man, Fridaysfather, who immediately let them know that the five men, who wereto fetch them out one by one, had chosen them for their wives.When they had done, and the fright the women were in was a littleover, the men went to work, and the Spaniards came and helped them:and in a few hours they had built them every one a new hut or tentfor their lodging apart; for those they had already were crowdedwith their tools, household stuff, and provisions. The threewicked ones had pitched farthest off, and the two honest onesnearer, but both on the north shore of the island, so that theycontinued separated as before; and thus my island was peopled inthree places, and, as I might say, three towns were begun to bebuilt.

Another observation I mustmake, to the honour of a diligent application on one hand, and tothe disgrace of a slothful, negligent, idle temper on the other,that when I came to the place, and viewed the several improvements,plantings, and management of the several little colonies, the twomen had so far out-gone the three, that there was no comparison.They had, indeed, both of them as much ground laid out for corn asthey wanted, and the reason was, because, according to my rule,nature dictated that it was to no purpose to sow more corn thanthey wanted; but the difference of the cultivation, of theplanting, of the fences, and indeed, of everything else, was easyto be seen at first view.中国福彩投注网投注中国The two men had innumerable young trees planted about their huts,so that, when you came to the place, nothing was to be seen but awood; and though they had twice had their plantation demolished,once by their own countrymen, and once by the enemy, as shall beshown in its place, yet they had restored all again, and everythingwas thriving and flourishing about them; they had grapes planted inorder, and managed like a vineyard, though they had themselvesnever seen anything of that kind; and by their good ordering theirvines, their grapes were as good again as any of the others. Theyhad also found themselves out a retreat in the thickest part of thewoods, where, though there was not a natural cave, as I had found,yet they made one with incessant labour of their hands, and where,when the mischief which followed happened, they secured their wivesand children so as they could never be found; they having, bysticking innumerable stakes and poles of the wood which, as I said,grew so readily, made the grove impassable, except in some places,when they climbed up to get over the outside part, and then went onby ways of their own leaving.福彩
投注As to the three reprobates, as I justly call them, though they weremuch civilised by their settlement compared to what they werebefore, and were not so quarrelsome, having not the sameopportunity; yet one of the certain companions of a profligate mindnever left them, and that was their idleness. It is true, theyplanted corn and made fences; but Solomons words were never betterverified than in them, "I went by the vineyard of the slothful, andit was all overgrown with thorns": for when the Spaniards came toview their crop they could not see it in some places for weeds, thehedge had several gaps in it, where the wild goats had got in andeaten up the corn; perhaps here and there a dead bush was crammedin, to stop them out for the present, but it was only shutting thestable-door after the steed was stolen. Whereas, when they lookedon the colony of the other two, there was the very face of industryand success upon all they did; there was not a weed to be seen inall their corn, or a gap in any of their hedges; and they, on theother hand, verified Solomons words in another place, "that thediligent hand maketh rich"; for everything grew and thrived, andthey had plenty within and without; they had more tame cattle thanthe others, more utensils and necessaries within doors, and yetmore pleasure and diversion too.中国福彩详情
