Can you make her out, Ned? My eyes are not so sharp as they used to be, and I lost sight of the craft when came on. She has tacked, uncle- I see her masts in one, and shes standing to the westward.

She has tacked, uncle- I see her masts in one, and shes standing to the westward.

I was afraid so- she must be a stranger, or she would have kept her course. Shell not weather the head as shes now standing, and if it doesnt clear and show her the land, shell be on shore, as sure as my name is John Pack. The speaker was a strongly built man, dressed in a thick pea-coat buttoned closely over his breast, the collar turned up to protect his neck.

A white, low-crowned, weather-beaten, broadish-brimmed hat covered his head, and he held in his hand a thick stick, which he pressed firmly on the ground as he walked, for he had been deprived of one of his legs, its place being supplied by a wooden substitute resembling a mop handle in shape.

His appearance was decidedly nautical, and though habited in plain clothes, he might have been known at a glance to be a naval officer. His companion, a boy of about fourteen years of age, though from his height and breadth of shoulders he might have been supposed to be older, wore a thick monkey jacket, a necessary protection against the strong wind and dense masses of rain and mist which swept up from the ocean.
