But Xury was happy to help me. 'I'll go all over the world with you'he cried.
I wanted to sail to the Canary Islandsbut I was afraid to go too far from the shore. It was only a small boat. And so we sailed on south for some days. We had very little waterand it was dangerous country herewith many wild animals. We were afraidbut we often had to go on shore to get more water. Once I used a gun to shoot a wild animal. I don't know what animal it wasbut it made a good meal.
Then I said to the boy'Xuryif you help meI'll be a good friend to you. If you don't help meI'll push you into the sea too. '
For about ten or twelve days we sailed on southdown the coast of Africa. Then one day we saw some people on the shore—strangewild peoplewho did not look friendly. By now we had very little foodand We really needed help. we were afraidbut we had to go on shore.
Just then two big wild cats came down to the shore from the mountains. I think they were leopards. The people were afraid of these wild catsand the women cried out. QuicklyI took a gunand shot one of the animals. The second wild cat ran back up into the mountains.
At firstthey were afraid of ustoo. Perhaps white people never visited this coast. We did not speak their languageof courseso we used our hands and faces to show that we were hungry. They came with food for usbut then they moved away quickly. We carried the food to our boatand they watched us. I tried to thank thembut I had nothing to give them.
