Stories of the Ocean, or Gems from the Sea-Faring Life (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Stories of the Ocean, or Gems From the Sea-Faring Life Rambling along the ocean-shore, at one time a smooth pebble has turned up; at another a polished shell then a rare pearl and at the next step a precious gem. The within are a part of a twenty years' collection. Their aim is, to interest and instruct the mind; to impress and improve the heart. If they shall accomplish this object, and prove like apples of gold in pictures of silver, the pleasure of their discovery will be renewed, and the pains of collecting them will be amply rewarded.
