THE CORAL ISLAND Quote #2

From Chapter Two:

“‘There, lass,’ cried a broad-shouldered jack-tar, giving the fluke of the anchor a hearty slap with his hand after the housing was completed, ‘there, lass, take a good nap now, for we shan’t ask you to kiss the mud again for many a long day to come!'”

– R. M. Ballantyne
