Some persons of this generation do
aot know thalt, though on,. now hseldom)
sees the American fi;ag at thel peiak "f
an ocean vessel, just before the civil
war we were fast absorbing the carry
ing trade of the world. Steam h:,dld't
then displaced sails as it has almost
entirely done today, and our cllil.er
sailing ships were the finest and fast
est on the seas.
In 18,4 1 was third mate on one of
these ships. We were bound for lHo1tg.
kong at the time of which I am spelak
ing, having sailled fron New York.
There was no Suez canal in those days,
and we were obliged to go around the
Cape of Good Ilope. We were ap
proaching the South African coast
when we overhaulel a derelict.
A derelict is always an interesting
object plunging helplessly about among
the waves with no hand to even at
tempt to guide her. Then one's curi
osity it always excited its to why and
how she was left by those who were
on her, and the Inlagination gets to
work at once. Our captain hove to
and said to me:
"M3r. Morton, take a boat, go aboard
of her and investigate. Take tools to
scuttle her and powder to blow her up,
as the case may require."
I was much pleased at the order,
and it was not long before I was
aboard the derelict. I found a good
deal of damage done on deck, evident
ly by a storm. A number of the lights
had been broken, and the seas had
drenched the cabin. Everything was
in confusion as If those on board had
been under great excitement. In one
of the staterooms hanging against the
wood partition was a daguerreotype of
a girl evidently seventeen or eighteen
years old. The happy young face was
a great contrast with the wrecked con
dition of things about. I took it from
its book and put it in the pocket of my
pea jacket.
I couldn't make out anything about
the identity of the craft. Some of the
boards of the stern where the name
was painted had been knocked off ap
parently by the waves, while other let
ters were illegible. The letters left
RT A 8 1 0.
I made a copy of them, giving the
proportionate spaces between them.
But there was nothing else aboard to
identify the ship. She had been knock
ed about by wind and waves so long
that her inside was pretty well wash
ed out. I put fifty pounds of powder
in her, attached a fuse, lighted it and
pulled away from her. Before we
reached the ship there was an explo
sion and she sank.
As soon as I went off duty, choosing
a secluded spot, I took the daguerreo
type out of my pocket to have another
look. There's nothing remarkable in a
young sailor out at sea on a long voy
age making a companion of a girl's
picture and falling in love with it At
any rate, this is what I did.
On our way back I determined to
hunt through the whole of North
America to find the flesh and blood
that corresponded with my likeness.
We had a quick voyage, but not quick
enough for me, though a hunt for her
would be like looking for a needle in
a haystack. Nevertheless as soon as
we reached our home port I went to
work, overhauling the records of all
the ships reported loest But I found
so many of them that I despaired of
hitting on the right one. If I could
supply the missing letters to the ship's
name I might get into communication
with some one who could tell me about
my girl. But this seemed impomssible.
I made a list of all ships reported
missing and compared my letters with
their names, but I must have been
very stupid, for I couldn't make them
ft with any of the names on my list
Two years later, while on the New
England coast, I went asbore with
some of my mates to enjoy ourselves
in a summer garden. We had hardly
got seated when I saw ;t a neighbor
ing table the original of my picture.
She looked up and, seeing me staring
at her with a singular expression, look
ed embarrassed; but when I arose, took
the daguerreotype from my pocketl-I
always carried it with ma-and handed
her her own picture I thought she
would faint.
"Where did you get that?' sthe asked,
ushing and kturning pale alternately.
"Is it your likeness?" I asked.
"Are yo Snre?'

It was taken four years ago. I gave
it to my brother Just before he sailed
on his last voyage."
"In what ship?'
"The Martha Wuashington."
I took out my pocketbook and drew
from It the original memoradum of
theb letters left on the derelict's stern
They fitted in exactly with the name
the girl had given me.
"What became of her?' I asked.
"She was never heard from."
I told her of the derelict I had vlt
ed and of the finding of the daguerreo
typein a stateroom that had doubt
iam been her brother's.
I was the means of publishnag the
tate of a .hlp that had been on the
Iist of missing vessels for hour years,
thus giving the relatives of those lost
a her the first and only Information
received by them.
My nent voyage I made in a ship I
commanded and took the original of
the daguerreotype with me as my
