Elizabeth Jacobsen and Moses relaxing on the forecastle head
Moses lies on his front reading a book while Elizabeth has her eyes closed enjoying the sun on the forecastle head of the 'Parma'. When commenting about the appearance of two girls on the ship, the 14 year old Moses "philosophically remarked that at least two girls were better than one, 'coz zen zey fights each ozer!'. But the two girls, both of them signed on as apprentices, did not fight each 'ozer' or anybody else and they brought us no bad luck at all..." Alan Villiers Last of the Windships, 1933 voyage.
