We asked the young fisherman his name; and he made us understand that it was kalong.
kalong declared that they were carrying him away to worship him.
I began at length to fear that kalong, in his anxiety to serve me, had ventured too far, and had been cut off by the enemy.
When kalong came on deck at daybreak, we once more stood in for the coast.
kalong, I found, had not forgotten the instruction I had attempted to bestow on him while on board the Fraulein.
kalong may be a very honest fellow, but it is as well not to rely too much on him.
kalong then for a moment ceased paddling, and drew a deep breath, which seemed much to relieve his heart.
kalong was then directed to inquire what sort of people they were.
Blount and I were to use the two middle paddles, Hassan was to steer, and kalong was to use the bow paddle.
We anxiously waited until kalong and Ned could interpret for us.
