Youth - At age forty-two, Marlowe sits drinking with four other Englishmen who began their working lives in the merchant service. Most have other work ashore now, but they share the bond of seafaring men. He tells them the story of his first trip to the East, when he was an adventurous young man of twenty and had hired on for the first time as an officer, second mate on an old freighter bound for Bangkok. Typhoon-The protagonist of Joseph Conrad's narrative of a typhoon in the China Seas is Captain Tom MacWhirr.
Recommended by the builders of the Nan-Shan to Sigg and Sons, who want a competent and dependable master for their vessel, MacWhirr is gruff, empirical, without imagination. Although his reputation as a mariner is impeccable, his manner does not inspire confidence; yet, when he is first shown around the Nan-Shan by the builders, he immediately notes that its locks are poorly made. End of the Tether - The story is about an old, widowed, merchant-service captain, Henry Whalley, famous in his younger days as dare-devil Harry Whalley, captain of the clipper Condor.
A letter from his daughter requesting financial help is the catalyst that changes Whalley's course. This item is in the category "Books & Magazines\Antiquarian & Collectible".
