Sailormen aren't reliable ’ands at saving cash quite often, acknowledged the

belt subsequent to ’is epidermis in order that he couldn’t get at it effortless, however it used to be all
no reliable. He was once consistently working brief within the such a lot inconvenient places.
I’ve noticeable ’im wriggle for 5 mins correct off, with a tramcar
conductor status over ’im and the opposite humans within the tram reading
their papers with one eye and staring at him with the other.

sea agin prior to they ’ad meant, that they decided a way or
other to ’ave issues different.

They used to be homeward certain on a steamer from Melbourne once they made their
minds up; and Isaac Lunn, the oldest fireman aboard—a very regular old
teetotaler—gave them loads of reliable recommendation approximately it. all of them sought after to
rejoin the send while she sailed agin, and ’e provided to take a room
ashore with them and brain their cash, giving ’em what ’e known as a
moderate quantity each one day.

They might ha’ laughed at the other guy, yet they knew that previous Isaac
was as sincere as might be and that their cash will be secure with ’im,
and finally, after loads of palaver, they wrote out a paper announcing as
they have been keen for ’im to ’ave their funds and provides it to ’em bit by
bit, until eventually they went to sea agin.

Anybody yet Ginger Dick and Peter Russet or a idiot may ha’ known
better than to do one of these factor, yet previous Isaac ’ad obtained any such oily tongue
and appeared so fair-minded approximately wot ’e referred to as reasonable ingesting that
they by no means suggestion wot they used to be letting themselves in for, and while they
took their pay—close on 16 kilos each—they placed the strange swap in
their wallet and ’anded the remaining over to him.

The first day they used to be as happy as Punch. previous Isaac bought a nice,
respectable bed room for all of them, and arter they’d ’ad a couple of beverages they
humoured ’im through ’aving a pleasant ’ot cup o’ tea, after which goin’ off with
’im to work out a magic-lantern performance.

It used to be referred to as "The Drunkard’s Downfall," and it all started with a tender man
going right into a nice-looking pub and being served by means of a nice-looking barmaid
with a pitcher of ale. Then it acquired directly to ’arf pints and pints within the next
picture, and arter Ginger ’ad visible the misplaced younger guy positioned away six pints
in approximately ’arf a minute, ’e received one of these raging thirst on ’im that ’e
couldn’t take a seat nonetheless, and ’e whispered to Peter Russet to head out with ’im.

"You’ll lose the simplest of it should you cross now," ses outdated Isaac, in a whisper;
"in the following photograph there’s little frogs and devils sitting at the edge
of the pot as ’e is going to drink."
