下载 It is true, within doors we were warm, the houses being close, thewalls thick, the windows small, and the glass all double. Our foodwas chiefly the flesh of deer, dried and cured in the season; breadgood enough, but baked as biscuits; dried fish of several sorts,and some flesh of mutton, and of buffaloes, which is pretty goodmeat. All the stores of provisions for the winter are laid up inthe summer, and well cured: our drink was water, mixed with aquavitae instead of brandy; and for a treat, mead instead of wine,which, however, they have very good. The hunters, who ventureabroad all weathers, frequently brought us in fine venison, andsometimes bear's flesh, but we did not much care for the last. Wehad a good stock of tea, with which we treated our friends, and welived cheerfully and well, all things considered.

As the chiefSpaniard said, had they been all there the damage would not havebeen so much, for not a man of them would have escaped; but thecase differed now very much, for two men to fifty was too muchodds. The two men had the happiness to discover them about aleague off, so that it was above an hour before they landed; and asthey landed a mile from their huts, it was some time before theycould come at them. Now, having great reason to believe that theywere betrayed, the first thing they did was to bind the two slaveswhich were left, and cause two of the three men whom they broughtwith the women (who, it seems, proved very faithful to them) tolead them, with their two wives, and whatever they could carry awaywith them, to their retired places in the woods, which I havespoken of above, and there to bind the two fellows hand and foot,till they heard farther. In the next place, seeing the savageswere all come on shore, and that they had bent their coursedirectly that way, they opened the fences where the milch cows werekept, and drove them all out; leaving their goats to straggle inthe woods, whither they pleased, that the savages might think theywere all bred wild; but the rogue who came with them was toocunning for that, and gave them an account of it all, for they wentdirectly to the place.详情
