"Goin' over?" he asked, pleasantly, when Philip came up. "Yes.
Perhaps even the most ardent snow-lover would lose his taste for the soft molecules under such circumstances! On the fifth day, the sun appeared again, when Captain Billings took advantage of the opportunity for getting an observation as to our position, using Mr Macdougall's sextant, his own and mine having gone to the bottom when the long-boat was upset.
There was a triumphant leer on MacDougall's lips as he and the jailer approached. As the whipper bound Neil's hands behind his back he hissed in his ear.
