But the misery of the poor passengers in the cabin was of another nature,But the misery of the poor passengers in the cabin was of another nature,

and far beyond the rest; for as, first, the ship's company had so little

for themselves, it was but too true that they had at first kept them very

low, and at last totally neglected them: so that for six or seven days it

might be said they had really no food at all, and for several days before

very little. The poor mother, who, as the men reported, was a woman of

sense and good breeding, had spared all she could so affectionately for

her son, that at last she entirely sank under it; and when the mate of

our ship went in, she sat upon the floor on deck, with her back up

against the sides, between two chairs, which were lashed fast, and her

head sunk between her shoulders like a corpse, though not quite dead. My

mate said all he could to revive and encourage her, and with a spoon put

some broth into her mouth. She opened her lips, and lifted up one hand,

but could not speak: yet she understood what he said, and made signs to

him, intimating, that it was too late for her, but pointed to her child,

as if she would have said they should take care of him. However, the

mate, who was exceedingly moved at the sight, endeavoured to get some of

the broth into her mouth, and, as he said, got two or three spoonfuls

down--though I question whether he could be sure of it or not; but it was

too late, and she died the same night.
