The Fore-peak Yarn
Jack (Tom Saunders), on his first passage as apprentice to Bramble the pilot, listens to a seamen's yarn - a ghost story of a merchantman haunted by a cat - in the forepeak of the West Indiaman that they have brought down the Thames to Sheerness. This is one of a group of five original drawings for Marryat's 'Poor Jack' (1840) - in which the engraving faces p. 156 in Chapter XXII.
