passenger, particularly a female passen

The first of the passengers to make
his appearauee was Mr. Storr. It was
still very early. The little man went up
to the mate, and, after some talk about
the wind, and the rate of progress, and

thieves is a menacing one, where are

"There's nothing to be done, sir, but
