'How's her head Jack?' Original illustration to Marryat's 'Poor Jack' (1840)

Jack (Tom Saunders) is being tested by Bramble the pilot, to whom he is apprentice, on his knowledge of compass bearings. He is watched by Bramble's adopted daughter Bessy, whom he later marries. ' And now, says he, we must try you. This iron skewer is the ship's head, recollect, and I shall stick it into the table: when I do so, you must tell me what point of the compass stands to it, and then that will be the direction of the ship's head. Do you understand? Practice makes perfect, ... Now, then, how's her head, Tom [sic]? ; North-half-west, said I, after a little time.'
