18 AYLMER, Lady Narrative of the Passage of the Pique across the Atlantic

AYLMER, Lady. Narrative of the Passage of the Pique across the Atlantic. London : J. Hatchard and Son, 187, Piccadilly, 1837. First Edition. Pp (2),[3]-82,(2). Sm 8vo, original maroon boards, gilt lettering to front board, repaired maroon spine, all edges gilt. Not in O'Dea. "After receiving every demonstration of kind regret at our departure from Canada, which kind heartscould bestow, we embai'ked on the 17th of September, 1835, on board the Pi que frigate, commanded by the Hon. Captain Kous, and sailed for England, from Quebec, which for five years had been our home. There is a feeling in leaving those whom you look on, probably, for the last time, which admits of more than seriousness, and which, not all the gratifying proofs of respect (however the heart may answer to them) can lessen. The only thanks I could give were tears : and they were with difficulty restrained and concealed. Of Lord Aylmer I say nothing ; with a conscience free from offence, he endedhis government of Canada; and left, of course, some friends behind, who wi ll not forget him. Wind and weather befriended us on our passage down the beautiful St. Lawrence, and across its often-to-be-dreaded gulf. It was decided about three o'clock on the fourth day of our voyage, (the 21st,) that we should pass through the Straits of Belleisle : Captain Rous had very goodreasons for this decision, and I only mention my feelings on seeing a clou d coming after us, (as I may term it,) because they were very remarkable atthe time: an officer, who was then walking on the deck, said, "Yes, that c loud is one which will envelope us in a thick fog very soon." We went belowto dine, and not long after, the fog enclosed us as in a veil ; it brought with it a fearful destiny — for, owing to the darkness which it spread aro und, was our striking on the rocks that night, off the coast of Labrador. Captain Rous had on every previous evening played whist, with the other gentlemen of our party, but, on this eventful evening, he had remained on deck,and till ten o'clock I had taken his place at the card-table. I had been s eriously unwell before our leaving Canada, and as the usual noises on boardthe best-regulated ship are always sufficient to disturb an indifferent sl eeper, I had not enjoyed one good night's rest since embarking ; and excusing myself from remaining longer up, was determined to take advantage of some arrangements which had been kindly made to ensure me a calm and quiet night, and was just composing myself to sleep, when the tremendous crash occasioned by the ship striking forcibly against the rocks instantly roused me :as the ship was going her smooth and even course, eight knots an hour, wit h scarcely any motion, the shock was the more alarming." - pp.12-14. Boardslightly edge-sunned, inking to front board, two names inked to flyleaf, so me foxing to initial leaves (with only a couple of small spots throughout),else very good. A tidy copy.
