      The Gulliver's ship crashed against the rock and was wrecked. Six of the crew, including the Gulliver, let down the boat into the sea and rowed away.

The author swam as fortune directed him and was pushed forward by wind and tide. He often let his legs drop and could feel no bottom; but when he was almost gone and able to struggle no longer, he found he had reached a place where the declivity was so small that he could walk near a mile before he got to the shore. This was the shore of Lilliput, where he lay down and fell into a profound sleep.
