From "Shareholders": One o' the worst men I ever knew for getting into trouble when he came ashore was old Sam Small. If he couldn't find it by 'imself, Ginger Dick and Peter Russet would help 'im look for it. Generally speaking they found it without straining their eyesight. His temper passed off arter a time, and 'e began to look cheerful agin. It was a lovely morning, and, having nothing to do and plenty in 'is pocket to do it with, he went along like a schoolboy with a 'arf holiday. . . . * Also included in this collection are "Paying Off," "Made to Measure," "Sam's Ghost," "Bedridden," "The Convert," "Husbandry," "Family Cares," "The Winter Offensive," "The Substitute," "Striking Hard," and "Dirty Work."
