  • We arrived at Lisbon, Nov. 5, 1715.
  • I left Lisbon the 24th day of November, in an English merchantman, but who was the master I never inquired.
  • But he added, "that since I professed so inviolable an attachment to truth, I must give him my word and honour to bear him company in this voyage, without attempting any thing against my life; or else he would continue me a prisoner till we arrived at Lisbon."
  • They spoke to me with great humanity, and said, "they were sure the captain would carry me gratis to Lisbon, whence I might return to my own country; that two of the seamen would go back to the ship, inform the captain of what they had seen, and receive his orders; in the mean time, unless I would give my solemn oath not to fly, they would secure me by force.

  • There are no more uses of "Lisbon" in the book.
