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.

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.

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?
