So you may be sure, my dear Linden, that I was very anxious to be convinced under your own hand of your carnal existence. Take care of yourself, my good fellow, and don't imagine, as I am apt to do, that youth is like my hunter, Fearnought, and will carry you over everything. In return for your philosophical maxim, I will give you another.

Money he had none; and, beyond the dirty fearnought blue seaman's jacket which he wore, a pair of trowsers of the coarse cloth of the country, an old black vest that had seen better days, and two blue-checked shirts, clothes he had none. He shaved but once a week, never combed his hair, and never washed himself.

"Then will Father Ambrose be the better of having a friend beside him!" said the page, manfully. "Ay, but, my young fearnought," replied the falconer, "the friend will scarce be the better of being beside Father Ambrose he may come by the redder's lick, and that is ever the worst of the battle."

Then the youthful fearnought, to show his contempt for danger, stood on one of the cutter's cross-seats, pulled out a cigarette-case almost as large as himself, and puffed rings of smoke skywards. "I made a jolly fine set of rings that time," he told one of the men. Another of this tribe was in Cairo on leave when he received word that his ship was to leave sooner than expected.

After a stay of three weeks in the harbour of Rio, the Endeavour put to sea on December 7, and stood down the coast of South America. On approaching the latitudes of the Falkland Islands, the crew, complaining of cold, received what was called a Magellanic jacket, and a pair of trousers made of a thick woollen stuff called Fearnought.

Soundings 75 fathoms. Saw some Penguins. Gave to each of the People a Fearnought Jacket and a pair of Trowsers, after which I never heard one Man Complain of Cold, not but that the weather was cold enough.
