     The Sea Creatures   (The First Voyage of Sinbad the Sailor)  

The very next morning as follow, we begin our journey again, and when we reached the capital I was lovingly welcomed by the king, to whom I introduced how my adventures were, upon which he ordered to his assistants that I should be well cared for and provided with such things as needed to me. Being a merchant I searched for the men of my own profession, and mostly those who had came from foreign countries, as I hoped in this way to hear the news that came from Baghdad, and so find out some means of returning back, for the capital was situated upon the sea-shore, and visited by ships from all parts of the world.

During that time I heard many interesting things, and answered as many as questions relating to my own country, for I talked eagerly with all who came with me. Also after a few time later, in the time of waiting I discover a little island named Cassel, which belonged to King Mihrage, and which was supposed to be inhabited by a spirit named Deggial. In fact, the sailors guaranteed me that at night the playing of timbales could be heard upon it. However, I saw nothing strange upon my voyage, saving some fish that were full two hundred cubits long, but were fortunately more afraid of us than even we were of them, and get away from us if we did but strike upon a board to frighten them. Also there were other fishes were only a cubit long which had heads like owls.
