Ran Away to Sea: An Autobiography for Boys
1889. Reid was a popular writer of books for young people. Ran Away to Sea begins: I was just sixteen when I ran away to sea. I did not do so because I had been treated unkindly at home. On the contrary, I left behind me a fond and indulgent father, a kind and gentle mother, sisters and brothers who love me, and who lamented for me long after I was gone. But no one had more cause to regret this act of filial disobedience than I myself. I soon repented of what I had done, and often, in after life, did it give me pain, when I reflected upon the pain which I had caused to my kindred and friends.
