  6. "In the Morning I took the Bible, and beginning at the New Testament, I began seriously to read it . . . "
  7. " . . . I reap'd it my Way, for I cut nothing off but the Ears, and carry'd it away in a great Basket which I had made . . . "
  8. " . . . and thus I every now and then took a little Voyage upon the Sea . . . "

  12. " . . . we cut and hew'd the out-side into the true Shape of a Boat . . . "
  13. " . . . and no sooner had he the Arms in his Hands, but as if they had put new Vigour into him, he flew upon his Murtherers, like a Fury . . . "
  14. "At first, for some time, I was not able to answer him one Word; but as he had taken me in his Arms, I held fast by him, or I should have fallen to the Ground."
