American pea captain :
On his last voyage hshlo tho captain had
on board a young lady of remarkable per
sonal attractions a phrase I used as ono
being entirely new, and one yon never met
with in the newspapers. This young hdy
was beloved intensely by five young gen
tleman passonscrs, and in return sho was
in lovo with them oil very ardently, but
without any particular preference for cither.
Not knowing Inw to make up her determi
nation in this dilemma, she consulted my
friend tho captain. Tho captain being a

tho young lady, I'Jump over board, and

young lady, struck with the idea, and being
naturally fond of bathing, especially in
warm weather as it then was, ,taok the
advico of tho captiiu who had a boat
manned in case of accident. Accordingly,
next morning, tho 5 lovers being on deck,
