Poor men! they did indeed reach the island; but only to meet a moredreadful death than that threatened them by the waves. Overcome withfatigue and anxiety, they no sooner gained the shore, than they all,captain, crew, and passengers, threw themselves on the earth, and soonwere fast asleep. In this helpless state, they were attacked by thecruel and blood-thirsty savages who inhabited the island, and allbarbarously murdered, except two little boys, John and William Doyley.These children, sons of a gentleman and lady who had been passengersin the ill-fated ship, were kept in captivity by the savages for manyyears.At the time of the shipwreck, John was a stout lad, thirteen or fourteenyears old; but little William was a mere infant, being scarcely twoyears of age! Think what a dreadful life these poor little orphans hadbefore them! Their kind parents cruelly murdered, and themselvesprisoners to the barbarous murderers!
