Стр. 411 - The fruit grows on the boughs like apples ; it is as big as a penny loaf, when wheat is at five shillings the bushel ; it is of a round shape, and hath a thick tough rind ; when the fruit is ripe it is yellow and soft, and the taste is sweet and pleasant.
Стр. 415 - Morais, or repositories of the dead : the other most important article of building and carving is their boats '> and perhaps, to fabricate one of their principal vessels with their tools is as great a work, as to build a British man of war with ours.
