She loses several officers, then her captain dies, leaving a totally unsuitable officer, Kydd, in charge.
Finally she runs aground near the shore, where the natives slay some of the crew.
They leave the ship on a raft, Kydd being on one, and our hero and many other passengers on a second.
The latter is picked up by a fine-looking vessel, that proves to be a Portuguese slaver.
They are attacked by a British man-of-war on slaver-patrol, but manage to get away from her.
They go up a river to a village where, it appears, the vessel is to pick up a fresh supply of slaves.
Our heroes ask if they can be put ashore here, which is agreed to.
