Oxford University Press

It was winter when Captain S. and the author left Oxford and set out for Scotland. Along the way, he observed people gliding swiftly along on the ice. Scotland is divided into highlands and lowlands and features many mountains and forests. The cities are fewer compared to England. Having arrived in Edinburgh, the author proceeded to the house of Captain S.'s father. The author observed how marriage is practiced in Europe. While staying with Captain S.'s family, he learned so many things about him. When Captain S. was in Europe, for example, he was deeply versed in surgery, and (once), for the purpose of dissection, he disinterred the corpse of a poor man. This having been discovered, for fear of his life he embarked on board ship and ran away, and for many days practised as a surgeon in the countries of Malacca and Pegu.
