Description
Excerpt: A CHANGE OF TREATMENT. ?Yes, I've sailed under some ?cute skippers in my time,? said the night? watchman; ?them that go down in big ships see the wonders o? the deep, you know,? he added with a sudden chuckle, ?but the one I'm going to tell you about ought never to have been trusted out without ?is ma. A good many o? my skippers had fads, but this one was the worst I ever sailed under. ?It?s some few years ago now; I?d shipped on his barque, the John Elliott, as slow?going an old tub as ever I was aboard of, when I wasn?t in quite a fit an? proper state to know what I was doing, an? I hadn't been in her two days afore I found out his ?obby through overhearing a few remarks made by the second mate, who came up from dinner in a hurry to make ?em. ?I don?t mind saws an? knives hung round the cabin,? he ses to the fust mate, ?but when a chap has a ?uman ?and alongside ?is plate, studying it while folks is at their food, it?s more than a Christian man can stand.?
