To be sure, a fuss was made about this same ship, the Great Orion, and her voyage- but as more than two years have passed since the newspapers published their paragraphs respecting our adventures, I dare say much of what I may write about will be quite new to English boys, who as a rule, unlike their fathers, can manage to eat hearty breakfasts without having first read the morning paper.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
