Mister Ron's Basement #1734


We have found an odd assortment of Charles Battell Loomis stories from a variety of 19th Century Magazines.


Today's 1898 story, though not really a humorous one, is nevertheless one of the 
best tales Loomis ever wrote. He included it as the title piece in a collection of stories the following year. Filled with excitement and authentically graphic description, we present 'The Four-Masted Cat-Boat.'

You ought to enjoy this tale.


Time: approx five and a half minutes
