Excerpt from Contraband: A Romance of the North Atlantic Carrington lived on Long Island, and I talked with him on the phone. There were to he twelve in the party, the names of two, who were former acquaint ances, alone being mentioned in our brief conversation. The yacht was lying at Tompkinsville, provisioned, and ready for the sea. I must be on board by three o'clock the following day, and he gave me quite explicit instruo tions as to the best mode of reaching the vessel.

As Spain was in no way likely to become involved, I merely perused these reports with languid interest. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
