有官This sharing out the land to them I left to Will Atkins, who wasnow grown a sober, grave, managing fellow, perfectly reformed,exceedingly pious and religious; and, as far as I may be allowed tospeak positively in such a case, I verily believe he was a truepenitent. He divided things so justly, and so much to every onessatisfaction, that they only desired one general writing under myhand for the whole, which I caused to be drawn up, and signed andsealed, setting out the bounds and situation of every mansplantation, and testifying that I gave them thereby severally aright to the whole possession and inheritance of the respectiveplantations or farms, with their improvements, to them and theirheirs, reserving all the rest of the island as my own property, anda certain rent for every particular plantation after eleven years,if I, or any one from me, or in my name, came to demand it,producing an attested copy of the same writing. As to thegovernment and laws among them, I told them I was not capable ofgiving them better rules than they were able to give themselves;only I made them promise me to live in love and good neighbourhoodwith one another; and so I prepared to leave them.ag有官方网站有官

有官One thing I must not omit, and that is, that being now settled in akind of commonwealth among themselves, and having much business inhand, it was odd to have seven-and-thirty Indians live in a nook ofthe island, independent, and, indeed, unemployed; for except theproviding themselves food, which they had difficulty enough to dosometimes, they had no manner of business or property to manage. Iproposed, therefore, to the governor Spaniard that he should go tothem, with Fridays father, and propose to them to remove, andeither plant for themselves, or be taken into their severalfamilies as servants to be maintained for their labour, but withoutbeing absolute slaves; for I would not permit them to make themslaves by force, by any means; because they had their liberty giventhem by capitulation, as it were articles of surrender, which theyought not to break.有官ag有官方网站有官They most willingly embraced the proposal, and came all verycheerfully along with him: so we allotted them land andplantations, which three or four accepted of, but all the restchose to be employed as servants in the several families we hadsettled. Thus my colony was in a manner settled as follows: TheSpaniards possessed my original habitation, which was the capitalcity, and extended their plantations all along the side of thebrook, which made the creek that I have so often described, as faras my bower; and as they increased their culture, it went alwayseastward. The English lived in the north-east part, where WillAtkins and his comrades began, and came on southward and south-west, towards the back part of the Spaniards; and every plantationhad a great addition of land to take in, if they found occasion, sothat they need not jostle one another for want of room. All theeast end of the island was left uninhabited, that if any of thesavages should come on shore there only for their customarybarbarities, they might come and go; if they disturbed nobody,nobody would disturb them: and no doubt but they were oftenashore, and went away again; for I never heard that the planterswere ever attacked or disturbed any more.有官有官CHAPTER VIII - SAILS FROM THE ISLAND FOR THE BRAZILS

有官有官IT now came into my thoughts that I had hinted to my friend theclergyman that the work of converting the savages might perhaps beset on foot in his absence to his satisfaction, and I told him thatnow I thought that it was put in a fair way; for the savages, beingthus divided among the Christians, if they would but every one ofthem do their part with those which came under their hands, I hopedit might have a very good effect.有官In the month of May I began to make all ready to pack up; and, as Iwas doing this, it occurred to me that, seeing all these peoplewere banished by the Czar to Siberia, and yet, when they camethere, were left at liberty to go whither they would, why they didnot then go away to any part of the world, wherever they thoughtfit: and I began to examine what should hinder them from makingsuch an attempt. But my wonder was over when I entered upon thatsubject with the person I have mentioned, who answered me thus:"Consider, first, sir," said he, "the place where we are; and,secondly, the condition we are in; especially the generality of thepeople who are banished thither. We are surrounded with strongerthings than bars or bolts; on the north side, an unnavigable ocean,where ship never sailed, and boat never swam; every other way wehave above a thousand miles to pass through the Czars owndominion, and by ways utterly impassable, except by the roads madeby the government, and through the towns garrisoned by his troops;in short, we could neither pass undiscovered by the road, norsubsist any other way, so that it is in vain to attempt it."
