Quote #10

Besides this, I shard'd the Island into Parts with 'em, reserv'd to myself the Property of the whole, but gave them such Parts respectively as they agreed on; and having settled all things with them, and engaged them not to leave the Place, I left them there. (257)

Crusoe now owns the island, which he calls, earlier in the page, his "Collony" (257). Here, he shares it with some of the inhabitants but still considers it part of his holdings.
