what wonder then that these Nantucket Ear's born on a beach should take to the sea for a livelihood. They first caught crabs and qua hogs in the sand grown bolder. They waited out with nets for mackerel. More experienced, they pushed off in boats and captured cod and at last launching a navy of great ships on the sea, explored this watery world, put an incessant belt of circum navigations around it peep in at baring straits and in all the seasons and all the oceans declared everlasting war with the mightiest animated mass that has survived the flood, most monstrous and most mountainous, that Himalayan salt sea mastodon clothed with such portentous nous of unconscious power that his very panics are more to be dreaded than his most fearless and malicious assaults and thus have these naked Nantucket urz! These sea hermits issuing from their ant hill in the sea overrun and conquered the watery world. Like so many alexanders parceling out among them the atlantic pacific and indian oceans. As the three pirate powers did Poland, let America add Mexico to texas and pile cuba upon Canada. Let the english over swarm all India and hang out there blazing banner from the sun. Two thirds of this tear. Aquarius globe are the Nantucket lawyers, for the sea is his, He owns it as emperors own empires. Other seamen have but a right of way through it. Merchant ships are but extension bridges, armed ones, but floating forts, even pirates and privateers though following the sea is highway men the road they but plunder. Other ships, other fragments of the land like themselves without seeking to draw their living from the bottomless deep itself. The Nantucket er he alone resides and riots on the sea. He alone in bible language, goes down to it in ships to and fro, plowing it as his own special plantation. There is his home. There lies his business, which a noah's flood would not interrupt though it overwhelmed all the millions in china. He lives on the sea as prairie cox in the prairie. He hides among the waves. He climbs them as shammy hunters climb the alps for years. He knows not the land so that when he comes to it at last it smells like another world, more strangely than the moon would to an earth Simon with the landless gull that at sunset folds her wings and his rock to sleep between billows. So at nightfall the Nantucket er out of sight of land furrows his sales and lays him to his rest while under his very pillow rush herds of walruses and whales.
