Excerpt from Voyaging Southward From the Strait of Magellan And in proof of it (for, as a boast of virtue is evidence of wickedness, and of wicked ness the contrary, proof is needed), I mind the reader of a discrepancy in Chapter II of the book. There, while our poverty is laid bare, and the hand of others' generosity is displayed as fitting out my mate and me with many things, it is not told how and where we got our food supplies for a voyage of many months. Where we procured them, since the story of that would involve several persons of high position, will not be told: but bow, is my confession. We stole them.
