He knew better than to advance line-head against Retallick, so he attacked ong eshlong, speakin' his remarks as much as possible into the breech of the starboard four point seven, an' 'ummin' to 'imself. Our chief cook 'ated 'ummin'. 'What's the matter of your bowels? he says at last, fistin' out the mess- pork agitated like. "'Don't mind me, says 'Op.

These things half shifted Retallick, our chief cook, off 'is bed-plate. Yes, you might say they broke 'im wide open. 'E wasn't at all used to 'em. "Number One tells off five or six prime, able-bodied seamen-gunners to the pork barrels. You never see pork fisted out of its receptacle, 'ave you?

He refers them to the cook, yesterday my master " "Yes, an' Retallick nearly had a fit. What a truthful an' observin' little Antonio we 'ave!" "'It is discovered in the hands of a boy who says, and they do not rebuke him, that he has found it by hazard. I'm afraid I haven't translated quite correctly, Mr. Pyecroft, but I've done my best."

Take 'is bloomin' number! We'll have him executed at Ascension. "Retallick, our chief cook, an' a Carth'lic, was the on'y one any way near grateful; bein' short-'anded in the galley.

'I'm only a mildewed buntin'-tosser, 'e says: 'but speakin' for my mess, I do hope, 'e says, 'you ain't goin' to boil your Portugee friend's boots along o' that pork you're smellin' so gay! "'Boots! Boots! Boots! says Retallick, an' he run round like a earwig in a alder-stalk. 'Boots in the galley, 'e says. 'Cook's mate, cast out an' abolish this cutter-cuddlin' aborigine's boots!"
