The Young Man-Of-War's Man: A Boy's Voyage Round the World (Classic Reprint) Excerpt from The Young Man-of-War's Man: A Boy's Voyage Round the World The popular conception of a sailor - is a creature who spins yarns. Like the silk-worm, he is supposed to be forever enveloping himself in a web, spun out of his own brain. In accordance with this idea, when some two years ago the writer of these pages returned home, after an absence of nine years at sea, he was considered by the young folks a fit subject to levy upon for a story. But, unluckily, yarns are not ever ready on demand, at beck and nod. It requires various peculiarities in the surroundings, certain favoring circumstances as to time and place, to draw out your real old tar. Let the gale blow, and the good ship plow deeply through the rugged seas, as he lies snugly ensconced under his huge pea-jacket, protected by stout bulwarks from the cold blast and drenching spray, with the bright stars looking kindly down upon him, and you may be sure of a yarn.
