Here's mine:
From : Under The Jolly Roger:Being an Account of the Further Nautical Adventures of Jacky Faber by, L.A. Meyer

The grizzled old seaman who has me around the neck puts rough lips against my ear and whispers," Ye would've gotten clean away from this Hell Ship, girl, if'n you hadn't stopped to save poor Billy, and me mates and me ain't gonna be forgettin' that."
Well, at the very least I shall have a few friends aboard.


  1. I looked up L A Meyer, and was surprised to find the author is male. Seems unusual to me that he would write about a teen heroine - but I'm not an author, so what so I know?

  2. Great 56!! Sounds really good!
