Excerpt from Things Big and Little: Essays and Sketches

Here, for instance, is a Pirate Ilond by a Littleman of twelve. In this admirably-drawn chart there are two islands, with a broad channel running between them. In this channel, and on the two oceans which it connects, there are all manner of ships, from the' 'pirates' training ships' to majestic full -rigged galleons engaged in battle, and all manner Of fish, including eels, u sharks, whales, Strange fish, and Lulla fish. What exactly a Lulla fish is I do not know; but it looks even stranger than the Strange fish - a terrible species of leviathan indeed. In one corner of the chart a whirlpool is vividly suggested; while here is a group Of rocks that draw ships to their destruction. Here again is good anchorage, and here fishes do fly. On one of the islands there is a gorgeous King's Palace on the other the pirates have built themselves a noble castle; while among many other interesting features ashore are smiths at work pirates hiding gold.
