I remember him as if it were yesterday as he came potting to the indoor, his sea chest following behind him in a hand barrow, a tall, strong, heavy man, his Terry pigtail falling over the shoulder of his soiled blue coat, his hands ragged and scarred with black broken nails and the saber cut across one cheek, a dark live it white. I remember him looking around the covert and whistling to himself as he did so and then breaking out in that old sea song that he sang so often afterwards. 15 men on a dead man's chest, Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum in that high, old, tottering voice that seemed to have been tuned and broken at the capstan bars. Then he rapped on the door with a bit of stick like a hand spike that he carried. And when my father appeared, he called roughly for a glass of rum. This when it was brought to him, he drank slowly, like a connoisseur, lingering on the taste and still looking about him at the cliffs and up at our sign board. This is a handy cove, he said at length in a pleasant situated grog shop much company made. My father told him no very little company. The more was the pity
