The truth is, that as soon as the ship was fairly at sea, he was degraded from his captaincy by Mr. Leary (owner of the vessel) & Mr. ) As he was not a passenger, & had now ceased to be an officer, it was something of a puzzle to define his position. However, as he still had authority to discharge waiter-boys—an authority which the passengers did not possess—it was presently decided, privately, that he must naturally be the “head-waiter;” & thus was he dubbed. During the voyage he gave orders to none but his under-waiters; all the excursionists will testify to this.
All hands bewitched with it. It is wonderful pic dialogue. It didn’t seem wonderful (for you) when you read it to me. I think you have a gift or faculty of disguising the merit of your productions when you read them aloud. I know it, in fact. The Parlor Car was as much as 25 times better, in print, than it was when you read it to me. My lawsuit is done. The villain got only $300 out of me instead of $10,000, & the his lawyer got that. My lawyer’s bill & some little items, added to the $300 only swelled my expense to $800—so I got off admirably well.

He must have heard of it—the land was full of it. Why does he make no mention of the fact that during the entire excursion I never drew a sober breath except by proxy? Why does he conceal the fact that I killed a cripple in Cairo because I thought he had an unpleasant gait? Why is he silent about my skinning a leper in Smyrna in order that I might have a little something to start a museum with when I got home?
