The Director-General, with a humanity that was far from usual with him, exchanged Jogues’s squalid and savage dress for a suit of Dutch cloth, and gave him passage in a small vessel which was then about to sail. The voyage was 鏉窞涓濊 rough and tedious; and the passenger slept on deck or on a coil of ropes, suffering greatly from cold, and often drenched by the waves that broke over the vessel’s side. At length she reached Falmouth, on the southern coast of England, when all the crew went ashore for a 鏉窞娲楁荡鍏ㄥ鎸夋懇 carouse, leaving Jogues alone on board. A boat presently came alongside with a gang of desperadoes, who boarded her, and rifled her of everything valuable, threatened Jogues with a pistol, and robbed him of his hat and coat. He obtained some assistance from the crew of a French ship in the harbor, and, on 鏉窞鏅氫笂鐢风敓鐜╃殑鍦版柟 the day before Christmas, took passage in a small coal vessel for the neighboring coast of Brittany. In the following afternoon he was set on shore a little to the north of Brest, and, seeing a peasant’s cottage not far off, he approached it, and asked the way to the 鏉窞鍙戝粖涓€鏉¤鍦ㄥ摢閲?nearest church. The peasant and his wife, as the narrative gravely tells us, mistook 237 him, by reason of his modest deportment, for some poor, but pious Irishman, and asked him to share their supper, after finishing his devotions, an invitation which Jogues, half famished as he was, gladly accepted. He reached the church in time for the evening mass, and with an unutterable joy knelt before the altar, and renewed the communion of which he had been deprived so long. When he returned to the cottage, the attention
of his hosts was at once attracted to his mutilated and 鐜板湪鏉窞鍝噷杩樻湁浼戦棽搴?distorted hands. They asked with amazement how he could have received such injuries; and when they heard the story of his tortures, their surprise and veneration knew no bounds. Two young girls, their daughters, begged him to accept all they had to give,鈥攁 handful 鏉窞鍝噷鎸夋懇姣旇緝濂界殑 of sous; while the peasant made known the character of his new guest to his neighbors. A trader from Rennes brought a horse to the door, and offered the use of it to Jogues, to carry him to the Jesuit college in that town. He gratefully accepted it; and, on the morning of the fifth of January, 1644, reached his 鏉窞妗戞嬁鎸夋懇涓婇棬 destination.
He dismounted, and knocked at the door of the college. The porter opened it, and saw a man wearing on his head an old woollen nightcap, and in an attire little better than that of a beggar. Jogues asked to
