A characteristic pose


“My memory retains a picture of him… fists on hips and brow knitted in thought. It was a characteristic pose… “Well done!” he said, “Now get away as soon as possible and tell the Captain to sail at once. Goodbye.” I remember exhorting my tired and grimy rowers to put their backs into it.”
— John King Davis
