"Unfortunate tourists! They told Mrs. Trollope that the alligators -- or crocodiles, as she called them -- were terrible creatures; and backed up the statement with a blood-curdling account of how one of these slandered reptiles crept into a squatter cabin one night, and ate up the woman and five children. The woman, by herself, would have satisfied any ordinarily-impossible alligator; but no, these liars must make him gorge on the five children besides."
