I should report this now, would they believe me?

If I should say, I saw such islanders--

For, certes, these are people of the island--

Their manners are more gentle-kind than of

"Faith, sir, you need not fear. When we were boys,

Who would believe that there were mountaineers

Dew-lapp'd like bulls, whose throats had hanging at 'em

Wallets of flesh? or that there were such men

Whose heads stood in their breasts? which now we find

Each putter-out of five for one will bring us

Good warrant of" (Shakespeare 3.3).
