All his companions were devoured by the savages.

As for himself, tried to fatten early, but having failed to do so, after they got tired and left him to live.

Instead he was sentenced to the toughest jobs, and so spent five years in the midst of those dark, treated with an unheard-of cruelty.

Anyway, one day, an English ship called at that damned island.

Blacks who came on board to sell fruit, fish and seal oil, told the crew that there was a blank between them.

The captain sent some men ashore, and they brought him to poor Tom.

That ship was sailing for Australia and had to play in New Zealand.

Tom took courage and believed to play in the end the end of their hopes.

Blacks had left his belt, not found in the papers but could not arouse his greed, and therefore still had money.
