金洋 I told Atkins all this, and he heard me with great earnestness; butit seemed as if he turned off the discourse to the rest, for hesaid to me he would go and have some talk with his wife; so he wentout a while, and we talked to the rest. I perceived they were allstupidly ignorant as to matters of religion, as much as I was whenI went rambling away from my father; yet there were none of thembackward to hear what had been said; and all of them seriouslypromised that they would talk with their wives about it, and dotheir endeavours to persuade them to turn Christians.
代理When the three wanderers had give this unaccountable history orjournal of their voyage, the Spaniard asked them where their newfamily was; and being told that they had brought them on shore, andput them into one of their huts, and were come up to beg somevictuals for them, they (the Spaniards) and the other twoEnglishmen, that is to say, the whole colony, resolved to go alldown to the place and see them; and did so, and Friday's fatherwith them. When they came into the hut, there they sat, all bound;for when they had brought them on shore they bound their hands thatthey might not take the boat and make their escape; there, I say,they sat, all of them stark naked. First, there were three comelyfellows, well shaped, with straight limbs, about thirty to thirty-five years of age; and five women, whereof two might be from thirtyto forty, two more about four or five and twenty; and the fifth, atall, comely maiden, about seventeen. The women were well-favoured, agreeable persons, both in shape and features, onlytawny; and two of them, had they been perfect white, would havepassed for very handsome women, even in London, having pleasantcountenances, and of a very modest behaviour; especially when theycame afterwards to be clothed and dressed, though that dress wasvery indifferent, it must be confessed.金洋3招代理金洋
代理The sight, you may be sure, was something uncouth to our Spaniards,who were, to give them a just character, men of the most calm,sedate tempers, and perfect good humour, that ever I met with:and, in particular, of the utmost modesty: I say, the sight wasvery uncouth, to see three naked men and five naked women, alltogether bound, and in the most miserable circumstances that humannature could be supposed to be, viz. to be expecting every momentto be dragged out and have their brains knocked out, and then to beeaten up like a calf that is killed for a dainty.金洋金洋3招代理代理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.金洋代理The governor, who found that the having women among them wouldpresently be attended with some inconvenience, and might occasionsome strife, and perhaps blood, asked the three men what theyintended to do with these women, and how they intended to use them,whether as servants or as wives? One of the Englishmen answered,very boldly and readily, that they would use them as both; to whichthe governor said: "I am not going to restrain you from it - youare your own masters as to that; but this I think is but just, foravoiding disorders and quarrels among you, and I desire it of youfor that reason only, viz. that you will all engage, that if any ofyou take any of these women as a wife, he shall take but one; andthat having taken one, none else shall touch her; for though wecannot marry any one of you, yet it is but reasonable that, whileyou stay here, the woman any of you takes shall be maintained bythe man that takes her, and should be his wife - I mean," says he,"while he continues here, and that none else shall have anything todo with her." All this appeared so just, that every one agreed toit without any difficulty.
金洋代理Then the Englishmen asked the Spaniards if they designed to takeany of them? But every one of them answered "No." Some of themsaid they had wives in Spain, and the others did not like womenthat were not Christians; and all together declared that they wouldnot touch one of them, which was an instance of such virtue as Ihave not met with in all my travels. On the other hand, the fiveEnglishmen took them every one a wife, that is to say, a temporarywife; and so they set up a new form of living; for the Spaniardsand Friday's father lived in my old habitation, which they hadenlarged exceedingly within. The three servants which were takenin the last battle of the savages lived with them; and thesecarried on the main part of the colony, supplied all the rest withfood, and assisted them in anything as they could, or as they foundnecessity required.金洋详情
