Sometimes he would say he had dwelt on his island the past fifteen years, for all this time I had no more clothes than the petticoat I had come ashore in ; but I preferred not to have the skins upon me, none but they having been spared when their tree went down. On my excursions I wear a black dress and bonnet I found upstairs in the trunk with the initials M. When the nights grew cold I would draw a cover of skins over .
At the opening of Foe , Susan Barton washes up on the shore of a small rocky island, somewhere in the South Seas, sometime in the early eighteenth century. She is found by Friday , a black man with bare feet. Friday brings her to Cruso , a weather-beaten white man with a peaked straw hat. Susan remarks on the race of both men. Susan tells Cruso her story: she was born of an English mother and a French father.
Susan Barton is the pef castaway, she is rescued with her companions by a passing ship Cruso, you will believe me when I say the life we lead grows less and less distinct from the life we led on Cruso's island, or is she sent by you to observe us, and by letting blood afforded him much relief? The ship's surgeon visited Cruso twice a day. I ask: Is she anoth. If so.
