"but on condition, that if I succeed in putting you
in possession of your ship again, you shall bring
me and my companion to England." "The ship and
all that she contains will belong to you," answered
the Captain. Robinson then gave a musket and a
sword to each of these men. "Your enemies are sleep-
ing," said he: "they are separated from one another;
come, let us endeavour to overpower them without
shedding blood."
They set out, Friday taking with him the ropes
with which the three prisoners had been tied. The
first sailor to whom they came, was stretched out
with his face on the ground, and slept so soundly
that they had already laid hold of his hands and
feet, and stopped his mouth with a pocket-handker-
chief before he awoke. They tied his hands behind
his back and ordered him to remain in that situation
without stirring or crying, and threatened him, that
if he did not he should be shot immediately. They
made him turn his face to the seaside to hinder him
from seeing what would become of his companions.
The second underwent the same fate, was fettered,
turned about, and threatened in the same manner
as the first. When six of these villains were tied in
this manner, the two last suddenly awaked and laid
hold of their arms. "Rogues!" said Robinson to them
with a loud voice: "do you not see your comrades
lying there? Instantly throw down your arms and
submit to us, the least delay will cost you your
lives." They obeyed, and fell on their knees before
their Captain, supplicating his pardon. They were
tied in the same manner as their comrades, and all
brought to Robinson's habitation to be locked up
there , and were told that the sentinel who guarded
them had orders to shoot the first, who might dare
to attempt opening the door by force.
