In Which I Hear the Tale of the First
Tuttle required a while petting
started, pulllni; nsldc his dangling
coat-tails to sit down facing me, and
then twiddling his long fingers with
his gaze bent on the deck. I take It
that his Intellectual operations were
naturally slow, although he was swift
enough In nil matters Appertaining to
seamanship Anyhow, he sat there fpr
bo long, his whole appearance so sleek
and oily, that I lost all patience, shuffling
mj feet on the deck The noise
served to arouse liiin
"It commenced somcthln' like over
two ears ago sir," he began, mouth
Ing each word with care, "a llttlo

I was master of the whulln' bark
Betsy, sallln' from Province town,
an' we were homeward bound after
about 18 months' cr.iisln In the South
Pacific, carryin' a fail cargo of oil an'
whale tilmmlngs We were rouadln'
the Horn, hi ng about 70 decrees west
and 5G degrees toulh when the real
trouble began I know that was rather
a low latitude, Irit wo had been
buckln' against bond winds an' a high
sea for more'n n week, an' besides
were shut handed, five of the crew
havln' skipped out at Soniers Island,
where we put In after fresh water.
Anyway, it was about there that a
storm hit us from ou' the nor'eaU. I
guess It must have been one end of a
hurricane. I never see nothln' fiercer,
even in those seas. There was nothln'
to do but turn tall an' scud, the ropes
and canvas being so stiff with Ice.
Well, we battened do.va, an' took
chances, but for a while I thcmjh
every wave was goin' to do for tin ol'
hooker an' sond us all to Davy Jonrj'.
I couldn't see live feet from the roll,
an' I had to keep rtljfiln' Ice out o
my eyes to see at all. The wind hnd
the feel of a solid wall, s'r."
Tuttle was leaning forward now, his
eibows on the table. His loan, solemn
countonnnco had lost Its llstlessnefls.
