As to religion, the natives believe that there is one Creator of all things, and
that he lives in the sun, and is girted round with a belt that he may never eat or
drink; but, according to some, he smokes a pipe, which is our own favourite
luxury. They believe he governs events, especially our deaths or captivity; but, as
for the doctrine of eternity, I do not remember to have ever heard of it: some
however believe in the transmigration of souls in a certain degree.
Those spirits, which are not transmigrated, such as our dear friends or relations, they believe
always attend them, and guard them from the bad spirits or their foes. For this
reason they always before eating, as I have observed, put some small portion of
the meat, and pour some of their drink, on the ground for them; and they often
make oblations of the blood of beasts or fowls at their graves. I was very fond of
my mother, and almost constantly with her. When she went to make these
oblations at her mother's tomb, which was a kind of small solitary thatched
house, I sometimes attended her. There she made her libations, and spent most

I have before remarked that the natives of this part of Africa are extremely
cleanly. This necessary habit of decency was with us a part of religion, and
therefore we had many purifications and washings; indeed almost as many, and
used on the same occasions, if my recollection does not fail me, as the Jews.
Those that touched the dead at any time were obliged to wash and purify
themselves before they could enter a dwelling-house. Every woman too, at
certain times, was forbidden to come into a dwelling-house, or touch any person,
or any thing we ate.
I was so fond of my mother I could not keep from her, or
avoid touching her at some of those periods, in consequence of which I was
obliged to be kept out with her, in a little house made for that purpose, till offering
was made, and then we were purified.
