עמוד 243 - It happened one day, about noon, going towards my boat, I was exceedingly surprised with the print of a man's naked foot on the shore, which was very plain to be seen on the sand.
עמוד 244 - ... looking behind me at every two or three steps, mistaking every bush and tree, and fancying every stump at a distance to be a man.
