Save Money On Flights

When We Took Leave They Followed Us To Our Boat; And, Seeing The Musquets Lying Across The Stern, They Made Signs For Them To Be Taken Away, Which Being Done, They Came Alongside, And Assisted Us To Launch Her.

At this time it was necessary for us to look well after them, for they wanted to take away every thing they could lay their hands upon, except the muskets.

These they took care not to touch, being taught, by the slaughter they had seen us make among the wild- fowl, to look upon them as instruments of death.

We saw no canoes or other boats with them, two or three logs of wood tied together served the same purpose, and were indeed sufficient for the navigation of the river, on the banks of which they lived. There fish and fowl were in such plenty, that they had no occasion to go far for food; and they have but few neighbours to disturb them. The whole number at this place, I believe, does not exceed three families.

It was noon when we took leave of these two men, and proceeded down the north side of the bay, which I explored in my way, and the isles that lie in the middle. Night, however, overtook us, and obliged me to leave one arm unlooked into, and hasten to the ship, which we reached by eight o'clock. I then learnt that the man and his daughter stayed on board the day before till noon; and that having understood from our people what things were left in Cascade Cove, the place where they were first seen, he sent and took them away.
