Midshipman and me-the Surgeon leaves the ship-the Captain comes on board
with another Surgeon-a dialogue between the Captain and Morgan-the sick
are ordered to be brought upon the Quarter-deck and examined-the
consequences of that order-a Madman accuses Morgan, and is set at
liberty by command of the Captain, whom he instantly attacks, and
pummels without mercy

CHAPTER XXVIII The Captain enraged, threatens to put the Madman to death
with his own hand-is diverted from that resolution by the arguments and
persuasion of the first Lieutenant and Surgeon-we set sail for St.
Helen's, join the fleet under the command of Sir C- O-gle, and proceed
for the West Indies-are overtaken by a terrible tempest-my friend Jack
Rattlin has his leg broke by a fall from the mainyard-the behaviour of
Mr. Mackshane-Jack opposes the amputation of his limb, in which he is
seconded by Morgan and me, we undertake the cure and perform it
successfully

CHAPTER XXIX Mackshane's malice-I am taken up and imprisoned for a spy-
Morgan meets with the same fate-Thompson is tampered with to turn
evidence against us-disdains the proposal, and is maltreated for his
integrity-Morgan is released to assist the Surgeon during an engagement
with some French ships-of-war-I remain fettered on the poop, exposed to
the enemy's shot, and grow delirious with fear-am comforted after the
battle by Morgan, who speaks freely of the captain, is overheard by the
sentinel, who informs against him, and again imprisoned-Thompson grows
desperate, and, notwithstanding the remonstrances of Morgan and me, goes
overboard in the night

CHAPTER XXX We lament the fate of our companion-the Captain offers
Morgan his liberty, which he refuses to accept-we are brought before him
and examined-Morgan is sent back into custody, whither also I am
remanded after a curious trial

CHAPTER XXXI I discover a subornation against me, by means of a quarrel
between two of the evidences; in consequence of which I am set at
liberty, and prevail upon Morgan to accept of his freedom on the same
terms-Mackshane's malice-we arrive at Jamaica, from whence in a short
time we beat up to Hispaniola, in conjunction with the West India
squadron-we take in water, sail again, and arrive at Carthagena-
Reflections on our conduct there

CHAPTER XXXII Our Land Forces being disembarked, erect a fascine
battery-our ship is ordered, with four more, to batter the port of Bocca
Chica-Mackshane's cowardice-the Chaplain's frenzy-honest Rattlin loses
one hand-his heroism and reflections on the battle-Crampley's behaviour
to me during the heat of the Fight

CHAPTER XXXIII A breach being made in the walls, our soldiers give the
assault, and take the place without opposition-our sailors at the same
time, become masters of all the other strengths near Bocca Chica, and
take possession of the harbour-the good consequence of this success-we
move nearer the town-find two forts deserted, and the Channel blocked up
with sunk vessels; which however we find means to clear-land our
soldiers at La Quinta-repulse a body of militia-attack the castle of St.
Lazar, and are forced to retreat with great loss-the remains of our army
are re-embarked-an effort of the Admiral to take the town-the economy of
our expedition described

CHAPTER XXXIV An epidemic Fever rages among us-we abandon our Conquests-
I am seized with Distemper-write a Petition to the Captain, which is
rejected-I am in danger of Suffocation through the Malice of Crampley,
and relieved by a Serjeant-my Fever increases-the Chaplain wants to
confess me-I obtain a favourable Crisis-Morgan's Affection for me
proved-the Behaviour of Mackshane and Crampley towards me-Captain Oakum
is removed into another Ship with his beloved Doctor-our new Captain
described-An Adventure of Morgan

CHAPTER XXXV Captain Whiffle sends for me-his situation described-his
surgeon arrives, prescribes for him, and puts him to bed-a bed is put up
for Mr. Simper contiguous to the state room, which, with other parts of
the captains behaviour, gives the ship's company a very unfavourable
idea of their commander-I am detained in the West Indies by the admiral,
and go on board of the Lizard sloop of war in quality of surgeon's mate,
where I make myself known to the surgeon, who treats me very kindly-I go
on shore, sell my ticket, purchase necessaries, and, at my return on
board, am surprised at the sight of Crampley, who is appointed
lieutenant of the sloop-we sail on a cruise-take a prize in which I
arrive at Port Morant under the command of my messmate, with whom I live
in great harmony

CHAPTER XXXVI A strange adventure-in consequence of which I am extremely
happy-Crampley does me in offices with the Captain; but his malice is
defeated by the good-nature and friendship of the surgeon-we return to
Port Royal-our Captain gets the command of a larger ship, and is
succeeded by an old man-Brayl is provided for-we receive orders to sail
for England

CHAPTER XXXVII We depart for Europe-a misunderstanding arises between
the Captain and the Surgeon, through the scandalous aspersions of
Crampley-the Captain dies-Crampley tyrannises over the surgeon, who
falls a Victim for his Cruelty-I am also ill-used-the Ship strikes-the
behaviour of Crampley and the Seamen on that occasion--I get on shore,
challenge the Captain to single combat-am treacherously knocked down,
wounded, and robbed

CHAPTER XXXVIII I get up and crawl into a barn, where I am in danger of
perishing, through the fear of the country people-their inhumanity-I am
succoured by a reputed witch-her story-her advice-she recommends me as a
valet to a single lady, whose character she explains

CHAPTER XXXIX My Reception by that Lady-I become enamoured of Narcissa-
recount the particulars of my last misfortune-acquire the good opinion
of my Mistress-an Account of the young Squire-I am made acquainted with
more particulars of Narcissa's Situation-conceive a mortal hatred
against Sir Timothy-examine my Lady's library and performances-her
extravagant behaviour

CHAPTER XL My mistress is surprised at my learning-communicates her
performances to me-I impart some of mine to her-am mortified at her
faint praise-Narcissa approves of my conduct-I gain an involuntary
conquest over the cookwench and dairymaid-their mutual resentment and
insinuations-the jealousy of their lovers

CHAPTER XLI Narcissa being in danger from the brutality of Sir Timothy,
is rescued by me, who revenge myself on my rival-I declare my passion,
and retreat to the seaside-am surrounded by smugglers, and carried to
Boulogne-find my Uncle Lieutenant Bowling in great distress, and relieve
him-our conversation

CHAPTER XLII He takes his passage in a cutter for Deal-we are accosted
by a Priest, who proves to be a Scotchman-his profession on friendship-
he is affronted by the Lieutenant, who afterwards appeases him by
submission-my uncle embarks-I am introduced by a Priest to a Capuchin,
in whose company I set out for Paris-the character of my fellow
traveller-on adventure on the road-I am shocked at his behaviour

CHAPTER XLIII We lodge at a House near Amiens, where I am robbed by the
Capuchin, who escapes while I am asleep-I go to Noyons in search of him,
but without Success-make my Condition known to several People, but find
no Relief-grow desperate-find a Company of Soldiers-Enlist in the
Regiment of Picardy-we are ordered into Germany-I find the Fatigues of
the March almost intolerable-Quarrel with my Comrade in a dispute about
Politics-he challenges me to the Field-wounds and disarms me

CHAPTER XLIV In order to be revenged, I learn the Science of Defence-we
join Mareschal Duc de Noailles, are engaged with the Allies of
Dettingen, and put to flight-the behaviour of the French soldiers on
that occasion-I industriously seek another combat with the old Gascon,
and vanquish him in my turn-our regiment is put into Winter Quarters at
Rheims, where I find my friend Strap-our Recognition-he supplies me with
Money, and procures my Discharge-we take a trip to Paris; from whence,
by the way of Flanders, we set out for London; where we safely arrive

CHAPTER XLV I inquire for my Uncle, and understand he is gone to sea-
take Lodgings at Charing Cross-go to the Play, where I meet with an
adventure-Dine at an ordinary-the Guests described-become acquainted
with Medlar and Doctor Wagtail

CHAPTER XLVI Wagtail introduces me to set of fine Gentlemen with whom I
spend the Evening at a Tavern-our Conversation-the Characters of my new
Companions-the Doctor is roasted-our Issue of our Debauch

CHAPTER XLVII Strap communicates to me a conquest he had made of a
Chandler's Widow-finds himself miserably mistaken-I go to the Opera-
admire Melinda-am cautioned by Banter-go to the Assembly at Hampstead-
dance with that young lady-receive an insolent message from Bragwell,
whose mettle is soon cooled-am in favour with my Mistress, whom I visit
next day, and am bubbled out of eighteen guineas at cards-Strap triumphs
at my success, but is astonished at my expense-Banter comes to my
lodging, is very sarcastic at my expense, and borrows five guineas from
me, as a proof of his friendship

CHAPTER XLVIII We repair to the coffee-house, where we overhear a
curious dispute between Wagtail and Medlar, which is referred to our
decision-the Doctor gives an account of his experiment-Medlar is roasted
by Banter at the ordinary-the old gentleman's advice to me

CHAPTER XLIX I receive a Challenge-the Consequence of it-the Quarrel
being made up, am put in Arrest by the Care and Affection of Strap-but
immediately released upon explaining my Affair-the Behaviour of Mr.
Oregan and his two Friends-I visit Melinda, whom I divert with an
account of the Duel-propose Marriage-she refers the Matter to her
Mother, of whom I make a solemn Demand of her Daughter-the old Lady's
behaviour-I am discarded--resent their Disdain

CHAPTER L I long to be revenged on Melinda-apply to Banter for his
Assistance-he contrives a scheme for that purpose-which is put in
Execution with great Success-I make an Attempt upon the Heart of Miss
Gripewell, but am disappointed-grow melancholy at my Disappointment, and
have recourse to the Bottle-receive a Billet-doux-am ravished with the
Contents-find myself involved in Intrigue, which I imagined would make
my Fortune-am confounded at my mistake, which banishes all Thoughts of
Matrimony

CHAPTER LI I cultivate an Acquaintance with two Noblemen-am introduced
to earl Strutwell-his kind Promise and Invitation-the Behaviour of his
Porter and Lacquey-he receives me with an Appearance of uncommon
Affection-undertakes to speak in my Behalf to the Minister-informs me of
his Success, and wishes me Joy-introduces a Conversation about Petronius
Arbiter-falls in Love with my Watch, which I press upon him-I make a
present of a Diamond Ring to Lord Straddle-impart my good Fortune to
Strap and Banter, who disabuses me, to my utter Mortification

CHAPTER LII I attempt to recover my Watch and Jewel, but to no Purpose-
resolve to revenge myself on Strutwell by my Importunity-am reduced to
my last Guinea-obliged to inform Strap of my Necessity, who is almost
distracted with the News, but nevertheless obliged to pawn my best Sword
for present Subsistence-that small Supply being exhausted, I am almost
stupified with my Misfortunes-go to the Gaming Table by the Advice of
Banter, and come off with unexpected Success-Strap's Ecstacy-Mrs. Gawky
waits upon me, professes Remorse for her Perfidy, and implores my
Assistance-I do myself a Piece of Justice by her Means, and afterwards
reconcile her to her Father

CHAPTER LIII I purchase new Clothes-reprimand Strutwell and Straddle-
Banter proposes another matrimonial Scheme-I accept of his Terms-set out
to Bath in the Stage-coach with the young Lady and her Mother-the
Behaviour of an Officer and Lawyer-our fellow Travellers described-a
smart dialogue between my Mistress and the Captain

CHAPTER LIV Day breaking, I have the Pleasure of viewing the Person of
Miss Snapper, whom I had not seen before-the Soldier is witty upon me-is
offended-talks much of his Valour-is reprimanded by a grave Gentlewoman-
we are alarmed by the cry of Highwaymen-I get out of the Coach, and
stand in my own defence-they ride off without having attacked us-I
pursue them-one of them is thrown from his Horse and taken-I return to
the Coach-am complimented by Miss Snapper-the Captain's Behaviour on
this Occasion-the Prude reproaches me in a Soliloquy-I upbraid her in
the same Manner-the Behaviour of Miss Snapper, at Breakfast, disobliges
me-the Lawyer is witty upon the Officer, who threatens him

CHAPTER LV I resolve to ingratiate myself with the Mother, and am
favoured by accident-the Precise Lady finds her husband, and quit the
Coach-the Captain is disappointed of his dinner-we arrive at Bath-I
accompany Miss Snapper to the Long-room, where she is attacked by beau
Nash, and, turns the Laugh against him-I make love to her, and receive a
check-Squire her to an Assembly, where I am blessed with a Sight of my
dear Narcissa, which discomposes me so much, that Miss Snapper,
observing my disorder, is at pains to discover the Cause-is piqued at
the Occasion, and, in our way home, pays me a sarcastic Compliment-I am
met by Miss Williams, who is the maid and Confidante of Narcissa-she
acquaints me with her Lady's regard for me while under the disguise of a
Servant, and describes the Transports of Narcissa on seeing me at the
Assembly, in the Character of a Gentleman-I am surprised with an Account
of her Aunt's Marriage, and make an Appointment to meet Miss Williams
the next day

CHAPTER LVI I become acquainted with Narcissa's brother, who invites me
to his House, where I am introduced to that adorable Creature-after
dinner, the Squire retires to take his nap-Freeman, guessing the
Situation of my Thought, withdraws likewise, on pretence of Business-I
declare my passion for Narcissa-am well-received-charmed with her
Conversation-the Squire detains us to Supper-I elude his design by a
Stratagem, and get home sober

CHAPTER LVII Miss Williams informs me of Narcissa's Approbation of my
Flame-I appease the Squire-write to my Mistress-am blessed with an
Answer-beg Leave of her Brother to dance with her at a Ball-obtain his
Consent and hers-enjoy a private Conversation with her-am perplexed with
Reflections-have the Honour of appearing her Partner at a Ball-we are
complimented by a certain Nobleman-he discovers some Symptoms of a
Passion for Narcissa-I am stung with Jealousy-Narcissa, alarmed,
retires-I observe Melinda in the company-the Squire is captivated by her
Beauty

CHAPTER LVIII Tortured with Jealousy, I go Home, and abuse Strap-receive
a Message from Narcissa, in Consequence of which I hasten to her
Apartment, where her endearing Assurances banish all my Doubts and
Apprehensions-in my Retreat discover Somebody in the Dark, whom,
suspecting to be a Spy, I resolve to kill, but, to my great Surprise, am
convinced of his being no other than Strap-Melinda slanders me-I become
acquainted with Lord Quiverwit, who endeavours to sound me with regard
to Narcissa-the Squire is introduced to his Lordship, and grows cold
towards me-I learn from my Confidante, that this Nobleman professes
honourable Love to my Mistress, who continues faithful to me,
notwithstanding the scandalous Reports she had heard to my Prejudice-I
am mortified with an Assurance that her whole Fortune depends upon the
Pleasure of her Brother-Mr. Freeman condoles me on the Decline of my
Character, which I vindicate so much to his satisfaction, that he
undertakes to combat Fame on my behalf

CHAPTER LIX I receive an extraordinary Message at the Door of the Long
Room, which, however, enter, and affront the Squire, who threatens to
take the Law of me-Rebuke Melinda for her Malice-she weeps with
Vexation-Lord Quiverwit is severe upon me-I retort his Sarcasm-am
received with the utmost Tenderness by Narcissa, who desires to hear the
Story of my Life-we vow eternal Constancy to other-I retire-am waked by
a Messenger, who brings a Challenge from Quiverwit, whom I meet, engage,
and vanquish

CHAPTER LX I am visited by Freeman, with whom I appear in Public, and am
caressed-am sent for by Lord Quiverwit, whose Presence I quit flung-
Narcissa is carried off by her Brother-I intend to pursue him, and am
dissuaded by my Friend-engage in Play, and lose all my Money-set out for
London-try my Fortune at the Gaming Table without success-receive a
letter from Narcissa-bilk my Tailor

CHAPTER LXI I am arrested-carried to the Marshalsea-find my old
Acquaintance beau Jackson in that Jail-he informs me of his Adventures-
Strap arrives, and with difficulty is comforted-Jackson introduces me to
a Poet-I admire his Conversation and Capacity-am deeply affected with my
Misfortune-Strap hires himself as a Journeyman Barber

go on Board-the Ship arrives in the Downs

Interview with Narcissa-return to the Ship-we get clear of the Channel-I
learn our Destination-we are chased by a large Ship-the company are
dismayed, and encouraged by the Captain's speech-our pursuer happens to
be an English Man of War-we arrive at the Coast of Guinea, purchase four
hundred Negroes-sail for Paraguay, get safe into the River of Plate, and
sell our Cargo to great Advantage
