"It was only a few days before this that the new vessel of Mr. Withrow's, built by him, as everybody supposed, for Maurice Blake, had been towed around from Essex, and I remember how Maurice stood on the dock that afternoon and looked her over. There was not a bolt or a plank or a seam in her whole hull, not a square inch inside or out, that he had not been over half a dozen times while she was on the stocks; but now he had to look her over again, and as he looked his eyes took on a shine. She had been designedby a man famous the world over, and was intended to beat anything that eve r sailed past Eastern Point. She certainly was a great-looking model of a vessel, and "If she only sails and handles half so well as she looks, she'lldo for me," said Maurice. "Yes, sir, and if she's up to what I think she o ught to be, I wouldn't be afraid to bet my share of what we make out South that she'll hold her own with anything out of Gloucester--give her a few weeks to loosen up, of course." That was a good deal to say, for it was a great fleet of vessels sailing out of Gloucester; but even so, even allowing for a young skipper's pride in his first crack vessel, it meant a whole lot coming like that from Maurice Blake." - from the first chapter. Owner's name, library bookplate, a little shaky, else very good. 75.00
