A SEA STORY (after W. W. Jacobs)
We asked our friend Captain Brown' one evening to tell us something, interesting about his voyages, and he told us the following story:
“It was fifteen years ago, when I was a mate on a ship which was .going to New York. We were having a very good voyage. The captain came up to me one morning and said:2 “Last night I heard such a strange thing that I don't know what to do about it. I couldn’t sleep and
I heard a voice which said in my ear: ‘Sail north-north- west.3 Sail north-north-west.’ We must sail in that direc tion and find out"
“I’m very sorry, captain,” I said, “but I think you had too much to eat last night and that’s why you couldn’t sleep”.
The captain was very angry.
“I didn’t eat much yesterday,” he said, “and I heard the strange voice three times, sir”.<
