"The barkentine, Boling Foam, was lying loosely moored to a wharf on the north side of St.John's Harbour, and from the appearance of the activity that was taking place on her deck, one could easily gather that she was being made ready to put to sea." - p.. "While the setting of this book is not wholly confined to Newfoundland, the two principal characters in the story are directly connected with this historic island, hence the story had its beginning here." - the foreword.
