He ev«ded the clutch of his arxle't hands and snapped to a position of attention before Naish. "Stowaway aboard, sir," he wid. "Mr. Wilson found 'im in th« spare boat 'midships. Triced up neat, but big and fat." From the deck, along the quartet ladder, then toward the companion scuttle, he head footsteps, the punctuation of a fist and a boot toe that cruelly caught flesh. It seemed that the Obis hadn't started the voyage as a very happy ship. The man who entered the cabin between the two mates was as bizarre as described by Alfred. His stomach fat, hairy and wrinkled, hung immensely down outside the wreck of his trousers. He had tiny feet shod in shellacked shoes, and Naish glanced into the bruised tace and discovered in the bloodshot, puffy eyes extreme intelligence, "morning to you, Captain, sir," the man said. "Don't talk 'til you're ordered to, ya swab," Mr. Wilson said and hit a blow that set the fat man swaying. • "What's your name?" Naish said He disliked the blow and yet knew that it should have been struck. "Albemarle Morrow, sir. My father was once impressed oB Guadeloupe into the ship ol the same name. Commanded by Horatio Nelson, no less ..." Mr. Wilson hid his hand lifted •gain, but Naish gestured to him. "What are vou doing aboard of th.s ship?" 'False friends, sir, and the fruit ot the vine mixed with what ,ust honestly b« called idle curiosity." "Take the log book," Naish told Mr. Wilson. "Enter this M it's said." 1 can't write down such," Mr. Wilson said. T aiot got the skill for it- Mr. Cupp had the log book, the ink pot and pen from the bulkhead shelf; he wrote down, "Al- hemarle Morrow, stowaway." Then held the pen motionless "How did yon get aboard?" Naish said. 'Sir, I was sorely drunk," Morrow said. "To my remaining memory, I was rolled down some dock like a hogshead, dumped into a boat and thus carried out to your vessel. The rest could be at best only conjecture. I was by that time gagged and bound." Mr. Cupp snapped shut the log book. "The carpenter and the cooper," Mr. Cupp said. "Go get them, Mr. Wilson," Naish said. He glanced back at the fat man. "What's your trade?" "WELL, sir," Morrow said, "From being an honest tavern- keeper and having drunk much more of the profits than my custom would allow, I became an agent for the New Bedford whalers." 'You mean that you have been a recruiter?" "Farm boys from all over Gen- csee County and as far West as Buffalo have fallen to my \yiles. My inside coat pocket contains some of the recruiting folders." Mr. Cupp, laughing, plucked into the torn garment and dropped on the table a handful ot luridly colored pamphlets. On the covers were shiny, gigantic whales, shinier whale boats >nd in the distance upon an Improbably blue and smooth sea a vessc that was solely the artist's, dream "A vulgar document," Morrow said, "and undoubtedly far from he truth. Yet I was engrossed by rt. I could do nothing more than come down-east and witness for myself what was truth and what was fa'ncy. New Bedford was my destination, but I became over- jowered by drink in Boston. ?rom one tavern to another, gentleman, and thus to your vessel." Mr. Wilson was on the companion ladder, a pair of men in clacking seaboots at his back. 'Carpenter and cooper, sir," Wilson said. "Names are Oliphant and Titcomb." "Aye," Naish said. He indi- :ated Albemarle Morrow. "Have >ou seen this man before?" "Drunk on the dock in Boston, :ir," the cooper said. "Said he'd up and vowed to stow aboard of a whaler." "And you, Chips?" "Yes, sir." The carpenter shuffled his boots. "You helped him?" The carpenter kept silent. It was again Titcomb who spoke. 'Not right away, sir. But he snuk aboard our bumboat." "Who got him aboard here? Who triced him up and stowed him in the spare boat? 1 * "We don't know, sir." "Get on deck!" Naish v said. 'When I reckon out what you're to be logged, 1 I'll send for you." • * • MORROW made a naturally dramatic wave of his arms after the pair had gone. "Pity them, Captain, .sir," he said. "As for me, I should delight to become a member of your crew." Naish cursed. "Sign him on w landsman, Mister." A black-lashjng squall was on the ship from windward. Rain rapped the decks and the experienced hands ran at his orders to slack the sheets. As it passed and the sunlight flared, he noticed away to the southward the white flutter of broached water. Whale, he told himself nervously, and started for the main top. But it was a school of dolphins that had broached; he returned almost In shame to the quarter deck.
