summary of sinbad the sailor first voyage
The other merchants who traded in it did the same; for my master made them partakers of his good fortune. He took up all the rest one by one, and viewed them in the same manner. As soon as the caliph's letter and present were delivered to me, I went to Bussorah, where I embarked, and had a very prosperous voyage. See the account of Cyrus's education—Xenophon's Cyclopædia. It seemed to be a delicious garden. I afterward went to a smith, who made me a bit, according to the pattern I showed him, and also some stirrups. They are seen three days' sail off at sea. said he, embracing me; "I rejoice that fortune has rectified my fault. He bemoans the unfairness of the world. He never quitted those he had once made himself master of, till he had destroyed them, and he has made this island notorious by the number of men he has slain.". Sindbad here ordered one hundred sequins to be given to Hindbad, and requested him and the other guests to dine with him the next day, to hear the account of his sixth voyage. The king, when he dismissed me, made me a very considerable present. It was at least fifty paces round. If I be drowned, I lose nothing, but only change one kind of death for another.".

But I, suspecting some trick, would not so much as taste it, which happened well for me; for in a little time after I perceived my companions had lost their senses, and that when they spoke to me they knew not what they said. The island was very well peopled, plentiful in everything, and the capital a place of great trade. When it is heated or rubbed, it exhales an agreeable odor. After I had returned him a thousand thanks for all his favors, I went aboard. Lead mines are found in the island; also Indian canes, and excellent camphor. By this time I found my strength gone, and despaired of saving my life, when happily a wave threw me against an island. We embarked on board a good ship, and, after recommending ourselves to God, set sail. Whence did you come?".
