Excerpt from The Voyage of the Arrow: To the China Seas, Its Adventures and Perils, Including Its Capture by Sea Vultures Fro the Countess of Warwick, as Set Down by William Gore, Chief Mate

I do not know who will believe a sailor's tale, for sailors have been known to enlarge on their yarns, but my father was a sailor before me and was an honest man. So were many of the Gores, and I myself have been master of a deep-water clipper-ship.

In spite of this I hardly feel that I have reached an exalted pinnacle of human fame, for most people do not regard me as a success, nor am I held up as a shining example of what man might accomplish in his life's work, although I was captain of the Southern Cross until I ran her ashore and lost her on the Irish coast.
