Mister Ron's Basement #1240



SUNDAY SALAD offers a truly intriguing, if somewhat lengthy piece by Stanley Huntley from 1882, relating his experiences aboard a Pilot Boat, one of many that brought big ships in to New York's harbor from the High Seas back then. This colorful tale showcases Huntley's unique talents as a newspaper feature writer, and may be one of the best stories we have ever read in the Basement.

It's called 'Life On A Pilot Boat; the Men who go Down to the Sea After Ships.'

Time: approx thirty minutes
