Excerpt from An Historical Account of All the Voyages Around the World, Performed by English Navigators, Vol. 2: Including Those Lately Undertaken by Order of His Present Majesty Broiled, as he did his goat's-bella, of which he made good broth. He kept an account of 500 that he killed while there, and caught as many more, which he marked in the ear and let go. When his powder failed he took them by fpecd of feet, for his way of living and continual ex ercife cleared him of all grofs humours, f0 that he ran with wonderful fwiftnefs through the 'woods and up the rocks and hills, as we per ceived, when we employed him to catch goats for us. We had a bulldog which we fent with feveral of our nimblelt runners to help him to catch goats; but he diftanced and tired both the dog and the men, caught the goats, and brought them to us on his back. He told us that his agility in purfuing a goat had once like to have colt him his life. He purfued it with f0 much eagernefs that he catched hold of it on the brink of a precipice of which he was not aware, the bull'ics hiding it from him fo that he fell with the goat down the precipice a great height, and was f0 bruifed with the fall that he narrowly efcaped with his life; and, when he came to his fenfes, found the goat dead under him. He lay there about twenty-four hours, and was fcarce able to crawl to his hut, which was about a mile dillant, or to {lir abroad again in ten days. He came at lalt to relifh his meat nithout fair or bread. He had a confiant fup plyofgood turneps, which had been fowo there by Captain24 capta m cooke's voyages.
