I observ’d, that the two who swam [in pursuit], were yet more than twice as long swimming over the Creek, as the [Savage] was that fled from them: It came now very warmly upon my Thoughts, and indeed irresistibly, that now was my Time to get me a Servant, or Assistant; and that I was call’d plainly by Providence to save this poor Creature’s Life.
For me to think of such a Voyage was the most preposterous thing that ever Man in such Circumstances could be guilty of. But I, that was born to be my own Destroyer, could no more resist the Offer than I could restrain my first rambling Designs, when my Father’s good Counsel was lost upon me. [And so] I went on board in an evil Hour, the first of September, 1659, being the same Day eight Years [ago] that I went from my Father and Mother’s, in order to act the Rebel to their Authority, and the Fool to my own Interest.
