SCENE.—Deck.

Mr. Mann, and the Mate.

Mate.

“I’ll tell you what, sir—we’ve got this head‐wind, all because you will keep catching Mother Carey’s chickens. If you go on catching them, we shall have a gale ahead.”

Mr. Mann.

“In that case, I should advise your throwing the cat overboard.”

Mate.

“Then we shall have a gale within ship that will last us all the way to Liverpool.”
