of the port of Sir..ipoiv, Jiomul for the
Kimlenm-.i M.i.i.ls. to the uorl'i . ami only
one of her crew was i ver a.iii: met with.

Ezra Williams, an Amencm from San

and Sumatra., Java. Borneo ami the small

1871, died at Singapore of ver He hud
then been married for three yars. to an
English woman, whose maiden name was
Danforl h, who had been adomistic in an
Engli.-h family in Sinap -re. 8 ie had ac
companicil him in all his voyages, and liad
secured mur h experiunre and iniorniation.
As the could not readily dispi.se of the
choon-r, she determined to titiuue in
the business, acting as her own super
cargo. Mrs. Williams secured an Englishman
named Parker as captain, another named
Hope as mate, and with three Malays le
fore the mast and a Chinese -ookj and
with about $7,000 in specie in the cabin,
she sailed away on her first voyage., and it
was four years later before she w.-is again
heard of. The purpose of this narrative is
to chronicle her adventures in the interim,
as I had it from her owu lips.
While it was a bit queer to start on a
voyage with a woman virtually in com
mand of the craft, Mrs. Will.ams had
nothing to fear from her crew. The offi
cers were good navigators and the men
willing, and all were anxious for a profita
ble voyage. She had no com.daints to
make until the islands had lxo:i reached.
The group lies letween the Malay Penin
sula and the island of Dorneo, ibout 100
miles oil the coast of the former, and from
250 to 300 miles from Borneo. There are
nineteen islands in the group, c wering a
length of 121) miles by about U) broad.
There are only seven or eight which are in
habited, and at the time of whi jh I write
the people were a lawless set, ai d a share
of them out and out pirates.
The products were dried fish', sea shells,
cocoanuts, dye stuffs, various herbs and
roots for medicinal purposes at d several
sorts of spices. The schooner had lieen
there once before and made a profitable
trip of it. She had clothing, powder,
shoes, axes and a great variety of notions,
and where none of these was wanted she
On this trip the schooler worked to the
northward and made her step at rhe island
of Quewang, being the third one from the
northernmost island of the grr up. She
met with a cordial reception, an 1 at once
legan bartering for and rtceivi-ig cargo.
She was anchored in a sheltered l ay, with
in 500 feet of the lieach, and had l-eeri tJiere
five days before anything occurred to
arouse Mrs. Williams suspicions that all
was not right. She then observed that the
entire crew were drinking deeply of a na
tive liquor which the natives were supply
ing in a liberal manner, and that some of
the fellows were iK-coming impudently fa
miliar. When the captain was spokt n to he
laughed at herideaof trouble. ind promised
better things; but the drinking continued.
On the afternoon of the seventh dt y several
women came off in the canoes. One of
them, who could speak English pretty fair
ly, was presented with some ornaments by
Mrs. Williams, and in return she hinted
to her that it was the intention of the
natives to capture and loot the schooner
that night. They had discovered that
there was a large sum of money on board,
mm iney nan lounn trie crew an e.isv one
to handle. The native woman hadn't time
nor opportunity to say much, but no
sooner had the crowd of natives left the
schooner at dusk, as was their custom.
than Mrs. il hams set out to sound the
alarm. Imagine her feelings wheashe dis
covered that every single man oi lioard.
from captain to cook, was So mm h under
the influence of liquor as to lie unable to
comprehend li-jr words. She dou seel them
with sea water and pounded them with be
laying pins, but all to no purpose. The en
tire lot were stupidly drunk, jut as the
natives had planned for.
It was a jierilous situation for the wom
an to be placed iu. If the natives captured
the schooner they would murder every one
of the crew as a natural sequence, and the
first step toward sapturing her had al
ready lieen taken. The step she took
showed sound judgment. The si hooner'e
yawl was down, having been in almost
hourly use. The native village was about
forty rods back from the beach, and as the
schooner swung to the ebb tide she pre
sented her broadside to the village. When
the yawl was pulled around to the port
side she was out of sight. Mrs. v. imams
first act was to step the mast, her next to
supply the craft with provisions at d water.
There were an unusual number of lighU
burning in the village, showing that some
thing was on foot, but'she had no fear of
an attack until a later hour. The natives
would wait until certain that all the peo-
nle were helpless.
Mrs. Williams had determineci to slip
away from the doomed craft intheyuwl,
although she had no experience in the
management of a small boat. After water
and provisions she brought up all her
money, whiiii w-as in boxes sL.e coma
handle. Not a penny of it was left behind.
There were a rifle, revolver and double
barreled shotgun belonging to 1 er hus
band. These she took, together with
powder, shot and fixed ammunitio i. Then
she gathered up all her liedding atid cloth
ing, took three or four spare blankets, two
suits of clothes belonging to the officers.
and wheu these were in the boat nhe took
pots, pans, dishes and cutlery, bundled up
a lot of carpenter's tools, secured t-o axes,
' a lot of small rope, several pieces ol canvas,
and. in brief, loaded the yawl with what
ever was portable and handy, iiiclading
the clock, compass, quadrant, sexlantand
a lamp and four gallons of oil. She worked
for upward of two hours cettins these
things into the boat, and the last articles
taken aboard were meat, flour, beans, tea
ana other provisions from the lazarette.
It was about 10 o'clock when Mrs. Will
iams took her teat in the yawl and cast off
from tho schooner, and the tide at once
drifted her out of the bay to the north.
the only thing of consequence she had
forgotten was a chart of the Java sea,
which she could have put her hand on at a
minute's notice, and it was the want of this
which made her a Crusoe for several years.
As the yawl went to sea after its own fash
ion, Mrs. Williams lost the points of the
compass at once. Indeed, had she kept
them in mind, it would have been of no
benefit just then, as she had not studied
the chart, and could not have told which
way to Hteer to reach another croun or the
main land. She heard nothing whatever
from the natives, but several years later it
was ascertained that they did not board
the schooner until midnight. The men.
all of whom wore still drunk and asleep,
were stripped and tossed overboard to
drown, and then the absence of the woman
and her money was discovered. Five or
six native crafts were at ouce sent in pur
suit, while the people who remained looted
the schooner of everything of value to
t hem, and then towed her out to deeD wa
ter and scuttled her to hide the evidences
of their crime.
After drifting three or four miles out to
sea the yawl got a light breeze, and after a
fewtnals the woman learned how to man
age the sail and lay a course. She had no
Mca wii'ch way she was heading, but ran
oil bef.ire the breeze, and k pt going all
nignt ana until mid afternoon the next day.

nong iii the earlv morning, but so far to
the westward that she could not see it.
The wind hauling at mi. I forenoon altered
her course by several points, and the north
ernmost island of the group, named Po-
nio, was thus brought in line. The
island is t.even miles long by three in
width at its widest part., and well wooded
and watered. The woman landed on the
cast side at the mouth of a creek which
forms a snug little harlor. She was con
vinced that this was one of the islands of
the Kinderoon group, but she did not
know that it was the most northerly one.
By consulting the compaas she got the
cardinal points, bat not having studied
t he chart she could not say in what direc
tion any other laud lay. She had seen tho
sails of two traders that morning, but as
they were native crafts she had every wish
to avoid them. The boats which were j
sent in pursuit of her must have taken an-!
other course, as she saw nothing of them.
hen Mrs. ilh.ims landed on the
island she had no idea of stopping there
for more than a day or two, or until she!
could decide on some plan. She had scarce
ly gone ashore when a gale came up which
lasted about thirty hours, during which
the yawl was so damaged that she must
undergo repairs. She unloaded her goods j
on the shore, covered i hem from the!
weather and then set out to explore the;
isiano, pretty wen sali-hoil that it was in
habited, and hoping, if it was, that her
money might secure assistance. Before
night she was satisfied that she was all
alone, and she made a shelter out of the
blarAets, and slept the night away as
peacefully as if in her cabin on the schoon
er. Next day she exchanged her apparel
for a man's suit and U-gan the erection of
a hut. In a grove altout 200 feet from the
beach she erected a shelter, 10x30 feet,
which withstood the storms of almost four
years. While the sides consisted of canvas
and poles, the roof was thatched with a
long grass which she found on t he island
It took the woman about a week to con
struct her hut and move her stores into it,
and this had scarcely Ixt-n done when her
bo.it, owing to carelessness on her part,
was carried off by the sea. nnd she now
realized that she was a prisoner until such
time as the crew of some trading vessel
might laud and discover her. After her
house was completed she made a more
thorough exploration of her isl.uid home.
There wen- parrots ar.d other bir.Ls. snakes
of a harmless variety, Borneo rat., and a
drove of ;!ont 3; 10 Java pigs, which are
ab.iut the siza of the American peccary,
but are w ild instead of fierce.
The woman had clothing to lfist her five
or six years, but the provisions she had
brought from the schooner would not sup
ply her needs more than a few months.
While hoping and expecting to betaken
off almost any day she wisely prepared foi
a long stay. She had fishhooks and line
in her outfit, and with fish from the sea.
meat from the wools and bananas and
wild fruits from the groves she had a va
riety anil a plenty. Six mouths after she
landed a native craft pnt in a'.iout a mile
from her hut, but creeping through the
woods she saw that ail were Malays, and
eo savage in appearance that she did not
dare make herself known. Seven months
later a second craft sent men ashore to fill
two water casks, but she was also afraid
of these. She lived very quietly from that
time until nearly two years after her land
ing, having remarkably good health all the
time, but naturally lonely and c;ist down
One afternoon, as she was in the forest
about half a mile from home, having hei
shotgun with her, a Borneo bailor suddenl)
confronted her. He was entirely alone,
and whet her he had been marooned or cast
away she never learned. As she wai
dressed in a man's suit he naturally took
her lor a man, but his first movement wat
a hostile one. He advanced upon the wom
an with a club in his hand and uttering
shouts of menace, and to save her own lif
she was compelled to shoot him.
Now and then, all through her stay,
trading vessels were sighted in the offing,
and sometimes a craft known to be
manned by Englishmen, but signals made
to the latter by means of smoke were never
heeded. Her main hope was that the loss
of the schooner would in some way reach
her friends at Singapore, and that a search
ing party might be sent out to her rescue.
One day, when she had been on the island
four years lacking about fifty days, the
British survey ship Sahib, then engaged in
resurveying the group, dropped anchor off
the mouth of the creek and sent a party
ashore to explore the interior. I had the
honor net only to head this party, but to
be the first man to see and to speak to Mrs.
Williams. We found her in excellent
health, although tanned and roughened
by exposure to the weather. When 6be
had donned her own proper apparel and
had time to tidy up no one could find fault
with her appearance.
After a few days we sailed for Singapore,
where Mrs. Williams was safely landed,
and a few weeks later a man-of-war was
dispatched to the Island where the schooner
had been seized. Natives were found who
gave all the particulars, and the result was
that eight men were broifght aboard, tried,
convicted and swung up at the yardarm,
while three more were shot while trying to
escape from the island. New York Sun.
