THE WRECK OF THE GOLDEN MARY 

THE WRECK 

I was apprenticed to the Sea when I was twelve years old, and I have
encountered a great deal of rough weather, both literal and
metaphorical.  It has always been my opinion since I first possessed
such a thing as an opinion, that the man who knows only one subject
is next tiresome to the man who knows no subject.  Therefore, in the
course of my life I have taught myself whatever I could, and
although I am not an educated man, I am able, I am thankful to say,
to have an intelligent interest in most things. 

A person might suppose, from reading the above, that I am in the
habit of holding forth about number one.  That is not the case.
