Excerpt from book:
are pretending an interest which is belied by the absent-minded expressions on their faces. The Captain—(Chuckling.] And that mission woman, she hails me on the dock as I was acomin' ashore, and she says—with her silly face all screwed up serious as judgment—"Captain," she says, "would you be so kind as to tell me where the sea-gulls sleeps at nights ?
