Under Canvas



Jerome had been telling Harris about his previous experience at sailing.  “It was a far cry from the rower’s life on the river,”  he assured him.

First of all there is that entire issue of canvas.  No, not the tarpaulin which provided cover from the inclemency of the weather, but the feature that propelled the craft.  Jerome never did quite get the hang of that, even after his adventure in Yarmouth.  But the canvas did still provide a shelter when needed.  Unfortunately, our hero couldn’t make heads or tails of how to cover the vessel with the complication of the mast and all.  Fortunately Montmorency was able to lend a paw or two, and a dry retreat was accomplished in the end.
