Ran Away to Sea

Ran Away to Sea is written by Captain Mayne Reid. The mate was an echo of his captain. When the one said "no" the other said "no," and when either said "yes," the other affirmed it. The principal difference between them was that the mate did not drink, and perhaps this lengthened, if it did not strengthen, the bond of friendship that existed between them. Had both been drinkers they must have quarrelled.
