Excerpt from Percy Vere Like to see over the old tub P asked Percy, with amiable intent. I'll show you, if you like. The little maiden drew herself up with a small assumption of childish dignity, cast a look back towards the boat where her mother, her nurse, and sundry other individuals, who might or might not belong to her party, still remained, and seemed as though they might be some while in embarking; and then she gave another look at Percy, cast her eyes round the big vessel, after which she smiled suddenly and graciously. I' don't think it's quite polite to call it an Old tub. It's a very fine boat - they all say so. That's why Mother chose it. But you can show it to me, if you like, boy. DO you belong to it? NO such luck! Wish I did! It's an awfully jolly sort of life. I want Captain Clarke to take me on as cabin-boy or anything, but he won't. Says I've got to go to some rotten school in England. Beastly hard luck, I call it - being sent away from all the fun at home to grind at books. Fellows always call England home; but I don't think it'll feel much like home to me.
