WINGLESS VICTORY

I WAS LOOKING for copy-"Moby Dick"stuff. I'm a"descriptive journalist." Now that whaling is about to join Purchas' Pilgrims and El Dorado hunting, I thought the time had come to "meet the last whalers." I've landed something, but whether it's a whale of a story or simply a snark, I can't make up my mind. As a yarn it's straight stuff, simple narrative. But the narrator. . . ?
There's a small public house near Wapping Stairs where old "masters" will drop in if they're on the Thames. That was the place where I used to go angling for whale stories. I own I'd found pretty well nothing. Even before it ceased to

I'd come to the conclusion that my search was no good and that I'd better think up some other subject for a write-up. Certainly the last hanger-on in that doleful little bar looked a very unlikely source for a story. It was clear he wasn't a " master" of anything. Then something made me look at him twice. He was a lightly built fellow, pretty obviously down and out. But in some odd way, in spite of the air of wastrel and flotsam which his clothes and carriage pretty clearly be spoke, there was one little oddity that didn't fall in with the commonplace formula of failure, and, though it was a small
