The rowers plied their fifty oars ; the white foam boiled up before the prow ; the
water gurgled and bubbled in their wake ; while Orpheus continued to play so
lively a strain of music, that the vessel seemed to dance over the billows by way

stood on a promontory, scowling at her, and wishing that he could blow out of his
lungs the ...

And for Gore, the excitement of a new experience was heightened by the
consciousness that he was here sailing in his grandfather's wake. On reaching
Cape Upstart on 6 June, they anchored for two days in a bay below the cape,

had sailed past and named ...

arms and treasure, and enter his service, to fight his foes and his grandfather's, ...
