Camp would be made right there. Suddenly, the Indian whirled about and fired at Gist, obviously the man he most feared and respected, since he aimed what would probably be his only shot at him. Somehow he missed. For an instant Gist and Washington stared blankly, frozen in shock. Then they sprang after their assailant, dragging him down. Gist would have killed him right there, but Washington protested. They disarmed the Indian and sent him north, while, under cover of darkness, they set out to the south, walking for twenty-four consecutive hours until they reached the Allegheny.
The brothers, thus, decided to split up. 27 Washington was hardly at sea before he fell prey to seasickness, a precursor, it turned out, to a thoroughly unpleasant return voyage. For days on end his vessel, the Industry, was tormented by rain squalls and thrashing winds. After two weeks at sea, moreover, he discovered that a thief had broken into his chest and made off with £10 of his hard-earned surveyor's wages. Finally, thirty-six days out of Barbados, land was sighted, and three days later George debarked near the mouth of the York River.
Maybe little Sarah's survival would prove to be a harbinger of good fortune. At any rate, he now had something else to live for. 24 The voyage, the only extended cruise George ever took, was typical of those in the age of sailing. The vessel was out for thirty-seven days. It was a reasonably uneventful, if lengthy, trip. The vessel was assaulted by strong gales and incessant rain for half a dozen days, and, added to the occasional dangers and the prolonged monotony of the trip, there was a shortage of biscuit, a condition that occurred when the ship's bread was afflicted by weevils and maggots.
