before I got to the shore, guessing that it was about eight o'clock in the evening. I then advanced forward nearly half a mile, 3).........at least I was in so weak a condition, that I did not notice them. I was extremely tired, and with that, and the heat of the weather, I found myself very much wanting to sleep. I lay down on the grass, which was very short and soft, 4)........; for when I awoke, it was just daylight. I attempted to rise, but was not able to move: for, as I happened to be lying on my back, I found my arms and legs were strongly fastened on each side to the ground; and my hair, 5)....... tied down in the same manner.

In the meantime, I felt at least forty more of the same kind following the first. I was in the utmost astonishment, and roared so loud, that they all ran back in fright: and some of them, as I was afterwards told, were hurt with the falls they got by leaping from my sides upon the ground.
