Cappy Ricks Retires
Cappy Ricks Retires Peter B. Kyne I've taken you out of the old _Retriever, _ Mike, where you've been earning a hundred and twenty-five dollars a month, to put you in the Narcissus at two hundred and fifty. That is conclusive evidence that I'm for you. But Terence Reardon is a crackajack chief engineer, and I want you to remember that the Blue Star Navigation Company needs him in its business quite as much as it needs Michael J. Murphy, and if you two get scrapping I'm not going to take the trouble to investigate and place the blame. I'll just call you both up on the carpet and make you draw straws to see who quits." "Fair enough," replied the honest Murphy. "If I can't be good I'll be as good as I can." At that very instant Cappy Ricks was just discovering what kind of Irish Mr. Terence Reardon was. The most innocent remark brought him the information he sought. We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection.
