Description
Excerpt: ?Wellingborough, as you are going to sea, suppose you take this shooting?jacket of mine along; it?s just the thing take it, it will save the expense of another. You see, it?s quite warm; fine long skirts, stout horn buttons, and plenty of pockets.? Out of the goodness and simplicity of his heart, thus spoke my elder brother to me, upon the eve of my departure for the seaport.
