Excerpt from Harry Ascott Abroad

"So you're the young chap that's going to Europe all alone, are you?"

I lifted my head, for I had been hanging over the guard-rail looking down at the sea, and saw beside me a short, stout gentleman, with a very red face and a great many wraps about him. I simply replied, "Yes, sir," and waited for him to go on, as this was about the sixth time the same thing had been said to me since the steamer's departure from New York the day before.

"Europe's a big country, a very big country," continued the stout gentleman, and then he slowly shook his head, looking at me all the while in a most sympathizing manner.

"When do you think we shall reach Hamburg, sir?" I ventured to ask, hoping to stop the motion of his head, for it certainly made me feel very uncomfortable, and as if I were going to a land full of wild beasts, which would devour me with great relish immediately on my arrival.
