by George Easton
Excerpt from Travels in America: With Special Reference to the Province of Ontario as a Home for Working Men
After we had been pitched and rolled about on the bosom of the Atlantic for nearly twelve days, I awoke from a sound sleep on the morning Of the 29th Decem ber about six O’clock, and felt that we had either arrived at our destination or had cast anchor in very calm water. I Sprang from my berth as if instead Of threescore I had been only thirty years Of age, and I can assure the reader there was very little time spent by me that morning at the toilet table, a practice of which I was never guilty; indeed, for the most part Of my life I had not, properly speaking, a thing Of the kind at which to kill time. On the morning referred to, I donned my habiliments with more than ordinary despatch, so that a few minutes after I awoke I was standing on deck, thankful to find we had arrived at our destination in safety. The city Of Portland lay right before us, and while looking around upon its land-locked bay, I was reminded of Lerwick ‘in the Shetland Islands.
