Excerpt from Historical Tales Scarcely had the anchor dropped in the harbour before a lady appeared upon the deck of the little vessel. The captain, as he saw her appear, gave her kindly greeting. Troubles all over now, I take it, mistress. We have had a sore tossing, but beshrew me if you have not stood it like the toughest old tar afloat! If it had not been for the poor young gentleman below, I trow you would have been on deck with the rest of us ever since we left port! How is he now, lady? And is there aught he is wanting? Can't you get him up on deck in this beautiful sunshine? We shall be lying here till to-morrow, and there's no more motion than the rocking of a cradle.
