"At the site of these, (the savages,) the hearts of the heroes of Communipaw were not a little troubled. But, as good fortune would have it, at the bow of the Commodore's boat was stationed a very valiant man, named Hendrick Kip (which, being interpreted, means 'Chicken,' a name given him in token of his courage). No sooner did he see these varlet heathens, than he trembled with excessive valor; and, although a good half-mile distant, he seized a musquetoon that lay at hand, and, turning away his head, fired it most intrepidly in the face of the blessed sun. The blundering weapon recoiled, and gave the valiant Kip an ignominious kick, which laid him prostrate with uplifted heels in the bottom of the boat. But such was the effect of that tremendous fire, that the wild men of the woods, struck with consternation, seized hastily upon their paddles, and shot away into one of the deep inlets of the Long Island shore."--W. Irving. [P. 7.]
