For eighty leagues the banks were peopled vyith friendly tribes, then the course of tho river lay between desert mountains, and they were fain to feed upon herbs and parched corn, not even finding a place where thoy could fish.

Thoy won the town and loaded them selves witb provisions, but eighteen of the party were wounded aud ono killed. They had neither surgeon nor any roinc- . dy for the wounded.

After another day's voyage they came to some inhabit- e(j islands, and to their infinite joy, saw that they had not been mistaken, for tbe marks of the tide here were certain. Here they lost another of their party in a skirmish with the natives. From this place the couutry was low, and they could never venture to land except upon the islands, among which they sailed as they supposed aoout two hundred leagues, the tide coming up with great force. One day the smaller vessel struck upon a snag, which stove in one of her planks, and she filled.
