The boat, with a crew of two, cost $7.50 per day." “It was the summer of 1858 and Robert Carter was feeling the heat in the nation's capital. What better remedy than a cruise along the New England coast? That was the Professor's prescription, and to complete the passenger list they recruited the Artist and the thirstyAssyrian. With this unlikely foursome, you are invited to sail aboard the Helen for a voyage into the past. Lobsters are so cheap you can use them for bait. In teetotaling Maine, not even the Assyrian can find a drink to refresh him. The tourist industry has yet to be invented, and the coastal towns are like so many foreign countries to the Helen and her crew.” - from theback cover. Spine lightly browned, else very good. 10.00
