Records of swift passages, hero tales and statements of vast profits were mingled in it in a way that proved memorable.

Accordingly, as the collection was read and reread, the names of certain captains became more and more familiar to the reader and then a time came when the name of one old captain came to mind whenever any true story of the sea was read.
