Description

Excerpt from The Novels and Stories of Frank R. Stockton, Vol. 13: The Casting Away of Mrs. Lecks and Mrs. Aleshine, And, the Vizier of the Two-Horned Alexander These two friends were not educated women. They made frequent mistakes in their grammar, and a good deal of Middle States provincialism showed itself in their pronunciation and expressions. But, although they brought many of their rural ideas to sea with them, they possessed a large share of that common sense which is available anywhere, and they fre quently made use of it in a manner which was very amusing to me. I think, also, that they found in me a quarry of information concerning nautical matters, foreign countries, and my own affairs, the working of which helped to make us very good ship friends.
