we were drawing nine! my hands were in a nerveless flutter. i could not ring a bell intelligibly with them. i flew to the speaking-tube and shouted to the engineer,
“oh, ben, if you love me, back her! quick, ben! oh, back the immortal soul out of her! ”
i heard the door close gently. i looked around, and there stood mr. bixby, smiling a bland, sweet smile. then the audience on the hurricane-deck sent up a thundergust of humiliating laughter. i saw it all now, and felt meaner than the meanest man in human history. i laid in the lead, set the boat in her marks, came ahead on the engines, and said,
“it was a fine trick to play on an orphan, wasn’t it? i suppose i’ll never hear the last of how i was stupid enough to heave the lead at the head of 66.”
