Does it treat you kindly?" "If you mean Am I ill at sea? I am glad to say that I am not!" she replied. "I love the sea; but I hate voyaging upon it." "That sounds somewhat paradoxical, does it not?" I ventured to insinuate. "Possibly it does," she admitted.

Their hope was that they might, voyaging up that river, at length reach some of the Hudson's Bay Company's trading posts. That they reached the mouth of Fish River we have melancholy evidence.

These points thoroughly settled and quietly realized, she was in a condition to go out of herself and enjoy all that was going on. She was specially elated at this time also, as she had gathered from her father's words that his danger was nearly over and that before the week was out they could defy Mr. Fox, look forward to Europe and bright voyaging generally. Mr.

With a swift dip of his hand into his inside coat-pocket he scattered out in a wealth of profusion on the cabin table all the papers, sealed and stamped, that he had collected in forty-five years of voyaging, the latest date of which was five years back.
