Being the third

son of a good family

and not educated to any trade

my head began

to he filled early

with thoughts of leaving

England, to see the world.

And thus against the will,

nay the commands

of my father,

I broke loose

and went out to sea.

How true my father's

prophecy of disaster

for not long after

being in the latitude of

hound for Africa

to buy Negro slaves

for my fellow

planters in the Brazils

a violent tornado

came upon us

which carried us westward.

Far out of the way

of human commerce.

(growling)

My only possession,

my only weapon.

(thunder)

I woke refreshed

and half perished with hunger.

Thirsty, without provisions,

with little hope of survival,

I set out to survey my fate.

No other land in sight.

I was on an island,

and barren by the sea.

The wreck of our ship

stranded during the night.

Ay!

Ay!

Sam!

She might slip from the rock.

I must contrive a raft

and try to save

her precious supplies.

I plundered from

the wreck many chests

with all manner of clothes,

tallow,

gunpowder,

the carpenter tools

and scores of useful articles,

not to forget that

fellow survivor, Sam.

Gold.

Yet, what use to me.

However, on second thoughts.

Tinder,

steel,

flint,

fire.

Fire!

Worth more to me,

than all the

gold in the world.

How often had I seen

my servants do this,

Yet I a master of servants

couldn't even

build my own fire

Rex!

Ah Rex.

You are alive,

you are alive too.

Rex.

(loud crashing sound)

What was that, Rex?

What is it?

She was gone.

That fearful sound had been

the death cry of our poor ship

I regretted all the iron work,

cable and lead that

had gone down with her.

Rats!

The only things from the ship

that I did not want ashore.

No ship will sail by

without my knowledge.

I kept dry branches ready

to flame into a mighty beacon.

My days were hurried,

crowded with all

manners of urgent tasks.

Most urgent of all

was to secure myself

from wild beasts and savages.

Meanwhile the rains approached

and needing a store room

for all the supplies

I found a place where

the earth was easiest

and started to dig up a cave.

I had never before so

much as handled an ax

and, or for that matter

any kind of tool.

I was but a very sorry workman

and all this cost me

a great deal of time.

I became a pleasant good shot

and with good cause,

for my constant

hard manual labor

gave me a most

voracious appetite.

The green coconut and its milk

I found to be most wholesome,

cool and refreshing.

My eleventh month.

Days passed in

hunting wild foul,

preparing food,

trips to my lookout hill

to search for sight of ships.

One day much like another.

Uneventful and,

I am sick,

chills.

Fever.

Getting worse.

Ah...

help...

help me.

In this second sleep

I had this terrible dream.

You here father?

Yes here,

Here, here, here,

here, here, here.

Not there, but here.

Where else would I be?

Are you not here?

How did you get here?

My boy you should not

leave your native country

At my house, with your

dear mother and me,

you had the very best

of all possible worlds

Yes, yes,

I remember all you told me

You're right

Give me water.

At home you are well off.

Saved the miseries of labor

and hardships of

man kinds lower state.

Though yet embarrassed by the

pride, envy,

luxury, and ambition

of its upper state.

Water, father,

give me water.

Ours is the middle

station of life my boy,

the middle station

Even kings would

have envied you.

Admit that now.

Will you not help me?

I want water.

Why did you fling yourself

into this stupid adventure?

Did you not know, that your

mother and I were praying

that God would not

separate us from you?

But

you were always wayward.

Water, bring me water.

Your mother and

I will forgive you.

Remember, But God

will not forgive you.

Heh, heh, heh.

He will not forgive you.

You will die like a dog

I will die.

I will die.

I woke weak,

yet clear of head.

Whether I had slept

for one whole day or more,

I could never be certain.

My first thought

was for water.

Did not Brazilians

have some physic

to prevent

recurrence of fevers?

Of course!

Tobacco, mixed in rum.

In that chest,

I found a cure for both

the body and soul.

Come to me in

the day of trouble,

and I will deliver thee.

And thou shall glorify me.

Yes It's true

Only He can deliver

me out of this place.

I now respect the Sabbath

and so, I mark this day

differently from all others.

The last of it Rex.

Now live been denied

the staff of life.

I recalled a grass

I had observed to

sprout and start to grow.

Grain, that which in

England we call corn,

and in the new

world, we call wheat.

Some few seeds

must have come ashore

with me from the ship.

With the Lord's help,

I could try to raise a crop.

Meanwhile I set out to make a

more perfect

discover of my domain.

I found great

amounts of cocoa,

orange, and lemon trees,

sugar cane,

tobacco,

and banana.

I discovered the turtle,

which furnishes an

abundance of savory flesh.

Great quantities of

most useful shell.

And even turtle eggs.

Also that other sea beast,

the octopus,

Which they say some people

lack the fortitude to eat.

Parrots,

which were known to me.

And other birds,

which were foreign.

Animals I did not recognize,

And those I did,

goats.

It was a most

unusual clear day.

Land!

Could I not hack out
