George Dorety made no answer, and to the meal's end no one spoke. After that, Dorety had his meals served in his state-room.

Robinson Crusoe was loose and vague in the placing of his island. It is said that Izaak Walton waved a hand obscurely toward the stream where he had made a catch, but could not be cornered to a nice direction, lest his pool be overrun.
