If you saw him trying to row forty to the minute you would marvel that he should be included in any crew at all.
Five was not looking happy. He was lying back too far and tugging at the finish. To him the boat seemed heavier than usual, for he was just beginning to realise the difference between seconding the efforts of Hughie Marrable and those of Mr Duncombe. Still, he was plugging gamely. Four, a painstaking person, was encouraging himself in a fashion entirely his own. After every stroke, as he sat up and swung forward, he gasped out some little sotto voce remark to himself, such as-"Oh, well rowed, Four! ... Stick- to it, Four! ... Use your legs, old man! ... That's better !... That's a beauty! ... Oh, well rowed, Four! " And so on. Where he got the necessary breath for these exercises nobody knew ; but some folk possess these little peculiarities, and row none the worse for them. Bow was another instance.
