鈥楧escend into that same valley we descried yesterday.鈥 rejoined Toby, with a rapidity and loudness of utterance that almost led me to suspect he had been slyly devouring the broadside of an ox in some of the adjoining thickets. 鈥榃hat else,鈥 he continued, 鈥榬emains for us to do but that, to be sure? Why, we shall both starve to a certainty if we remain here; and as to your fears of those Typees鈥攄epend upon it, it is all nonsense.鈥
So soon as I mounted to the pi-pi I saw at a glance that the revels were fairly under way.
So much for the respect in which 鈥榩ersonal property鈥 is held in Typee; how secure an investment of 鈥榬eal property鈥 may be, I cannot take upon me to say. Whether the land of the valley was the joint property of its inhabitants, or whether it was parcelled out among a certain number of landed proprietors who allowed everybody to 鈥榮quat鈥 and 鈥榩oach鈥 as much as he or she pleased, I never could ascertain. At any rate, musty parchments and title-deeds there were none on the island; and I am half inclined to believe that its inhabitants hold their broad valleys in fee simple from Nature herself; to have and to hold, so long as grass grows and water runs; or until their French visitors, by a summary mode of conveyancing, shall appropriate them to their own benefit and behoof.
