  • "There was one old whaler. He was a shiftless, loquacious product of city slums. This was his seventh whaling voyage—which would seem sufficient comment on his character. 'It beats hoboing,' he said. And as his life's ambition seemed centered on three meals a day and a bunk to sleep in, perhaps it did."
