Captain R, being taken prisoner by the Indians
at a battle in North America, was carried to their
town to be sacrificed in their usual barbarous man-
ner. He was tied to a stake, and on the verge of
the most cruel tortures, when an old Indian of
authority, starting up, reprieved him from death
and took 1) him for a slave. His treatment was
humane, and his servitude tolerable. A year and
a half passed in this manner, when an engagement
happened between the English and Indians. The
old man taking the Captain to an eminence, ad-
dressed him as follows: » My friend! you see
the men of your country are going to attack
us. You have lived with me a year and a
half. You came to me totally ignorant, but I
have made 2) a man of you. I have taught 3)
you to build canoes, to kill beaver, to hunt,
and to scalp your enemy. Are you not obliged
to me?" The Captain expressing his grati-
tude, the Indian asked him: .Have you a
father?" — .1 believe he is living," replied the
Captain. — • Poor man! I pity him. Know, I
was once a father! my son fell at my side, fell
gloriously covered with wounds; — but I re-
venged his death: I scalped and then killed
his enemy."... Making here a pause, he pro-
ceeded : » Behold that sun ! with what bright-
ness it shines to you!... Since that day a cloud
has darkened all its radiance in my eyes....
See that tree, which blossoms so fair for you,
to me it has lost all its beauty..,. Go. .. re-
turn to your father. Let the sun shine with
all its brightness for him, and the tree appear
in all its beauty." —
1) to take. 2) to make. 3) to tcach.
