The Mate of the Good Ship York

Excerpt:- A good proof of the interest my uncle took in my proposal to ship along with Florence and go to sea with her was in a letter I received next morning from him, enclosing a cheque for one hundred pounds. "My dear Jack," he wrote, "the accompanying money will enable you to pay your passage out, and lay in a stock of shirts and toothpicks for the voyage. Let us have no thanks - no nonsense. Just pay the draft into your bank, if you have one, and belay all jaw about it unless you want me to think you a. swab, which is a term I think you object to. You'll be giving us a. call soon, I hope. Yours, Uncle."
