A spider which was about three-tenths of an inch inlength, and which in its general appearance resembled a Citigrade(therefore quite different from the gossamer), while standing onthe summit of a post, darted forth four or five threads from itsspinners. The six animals together only costthe value of twenty-five pounds sterling, and at Copiapó I soldthem again for twenty-three. Itwas as easy to please as it was difficult to satisfy these savages. Onbeing plucked up, a great worm is found to be its root, and as thetree groweth in greatness, so doth the worm diminish, and as soonas the worm is entirely turned into a tree it rooteth in the earth,and so becomes great. Where the country is level I do not believe a spaceof the heavens, of more than fifteen degrees above the horizon, iscommonly viewed with any attention by a person either walking or onhorseback. on a hail-storm. It contains about thirty or forty Indian families,who are scattered along four or five miles of the shore.
