Home Rudyard Kipling Captains Courageous. His Indian experiences led to seven volumes of stories, including Soldiers Three (1888) and Wee Willie Winkie (1888). At twenty-four he returned to England and quickly turned into a literary celebrity.

Chapter V. THAT was the first of many talks with Dan, who told Harvey why he would transfer his dory’s name to the imaginary Burgess-modelled haddocker. Harvey heard a good deal about the real Hattie at Gloucester; saw a lock of her hair-which Dan, finding fair words of no avail, had hooked as she sat in front of him at school that winter-and a photograph.

Thus begins the boy's second voyage into the rugged rites and ways of sailors. Like all Kipling's masterworks, "Captains Courageous" is an interweaving of art and moral purpose.

TO JAMES CONLAND, . Brattleboro, Vermont. I ploughed the land with horses, But my heart was ill at ease, For the old sea-faring men Came to me now and then, With their sagas of the seas. The clouds are thick around their heads, The mists around their feet. Full boat," said Dan, with a chuckle. If he give us 'O Captain' it's topping' too!" The bellow continued: "And naow to thee, O Capting, Most earnestly I pray, That they shall never bury me In church or cloister gray.
