棋牌大嘴棋牌官方网站官方I consented to this readily, and went immediately on board, and thetwo men with me. As soon as I came to the ships side, my partner,who was on board, came out on the quarter-deck, and called to me,with a great deal of joy, "We have stopped the leak - we havestopped the leak!" - "Say you so?" said I; "thank God; but weighanchor, then, immediately." - "Weigh!" says he; "what do you meanby that? What is the matter?" - "Ask no questions," said I; "butset all hands to work, and weigh without losing a minute." He wassurprised; however, he called the captain, and he immediatelyordered the anchor to be got up; and though the tide was not quitedown, yet a little land-breeze blowing, we stood out to sea. ThenI called him into the cabin, and told him the story; and we calledin the men, and they told us the rest of it; but as it took up agreat deal of time, before we had done a seaman comes to the cabindoor, and called out to us that the captain bade him tell us wewere chased by five sloops, or boats, full of men. "Very well,"said I, "then it is apparent there is something in it." I thenordered all our men to be called up, and told them there was adesign to seize the ship, and take us for pirates, and asked themif they would stand by us, and by one another; the men answeredcheerfully, one and all, that they would live and die with us.Then I asked the captain what way he thought best for us to managea fight with them; for resist them I was resolved we would, andthat to the last drop. He said readily, that the way was to keepthem off with our great shot as long as we could, and then to useour small arms, to keep them from boarding us; but when neither ofthese would do any longer, we would retire to our close quarters,for perhaps they had not materials to break open our bulkheads, orget in upon us.
网站大嘴The gunner had in the meantime orders to bring two guns, to bearfore and aft, out of the steerage, to clear the deck, and load themwith musket-bullets, and small pieces of old iron, and what camenext to hand. Thus we made ready for fight; but all this while wekept out to sea, with wind enough, and could see the boats at adistance, being five large longboats, following us with all thesail they could make.大嘴棋牌官方网站棋牌官方Two of those boats (which by our glasses we could see were English)outsailed the rest, were near two leagues ahead of them, and gainedupon us considerably, so that we found they would come up with us;upon which we fired a gun without ball, to intimate that theyshould bring to: and we put out a flag of truce, as a signal forparley: but they came crowding after us till within shot, when wetook in our white flag, they having made no answer to it, and hungout a red flag, and fired at them with a shot. Notwithstandingthis, they came on till they were near enough to call to them witha speaking-trumpet, bidding them keep off at their peril.网站
大嘴It was all one; they crowded after us, and endeavoured to comeunder our stern, so as to board us on our quarter; upon which,seeing they were resolute for mischief, and depended upon thestrength that followed them, I ordered to bring the ship to, sothat they lay upon our broadside; when immediately we fired fiveguns at them, one of which had been levelled so true as to carryaway the stern of the hindermost boat, and we then forced them totake down their sail, and to run all to the head of the boat, tokeep her from sinking; so she lay by, and had enough of it; butseeing the foremost boat crowd on after us, we made ready to fireat her in particular. While this was doing one of the three boatsthat followed made up to the boat which we had disabled, to relieveher, and we could see her take out the men. We then called againto the foremost boat, and offered a truce, to parley again, and toknow what her business was with us; but had no answer, only shecrowded close under our stern. Upon this, our gunner who was avery dexterous fellow ran out his two case-guns, and fired again ather, but the shot missing, the men in the boat shouted, waved theircaps, and came on. The gunner, getting quickly ready again, firedamong them a second time, one shot of which, though it missed theboat itself, yet fell in among the men, and we could easily see dida great deal of mischief among them. We now wore the ship again,and brought our quarter to bear upon them, and firing three gunsmore, we found the boat was almost split to pieces; in particular,her rudder and a piece of her stern were shot quite away; so theyhanded her sail immediately, and were in great disorder. Tocomplete their misfortune, our gunner let fly two guns at themagain; where he hit them we could not tell, but we found the boatwas sinking, and some of the men already in the water: upon this,I immediately manned out our pinnace, with orders to pick up someof the men if they could, and save them from drowning, andimmediately come on board ship with them, because we saw the restof the boats began to come up. Our men in the pinnace followedtheir orders, and took up three men, one of whom was just drowning,and it was a good while before we could recover him. As soon asthey were on board we crowded all the sail we could make, and stoodfarther out to the sea; and we found that when the other boats cameup to the first, they gave over their chase.棋牌官方W.A. - My dear, I bow my knees in token of my submission to Himthat made me: I said O to Him, as you call it, and as your old mendo to their idol Benamuckee; that is, I prayed to Him.详情
