Text Appearing Before Image:
to the Stute Fish, This man is THIS is the picture of the Whale swallowing the Mariner with his infiniteresource-and-sagacity, and the raft and the jack-knife and his suspenders,which you must not forget. The buttony-things are the Mariners sus-penders, and you can see the knife close by them. He is sitting on the raft,but it has tilted up sideways, so you dont see much of it. The whitything by the Mariners left hand is a piece of wood that he was trying torow the raft with when the Whale came along. The piece of wood iscalled the jaws-of-a-gaff. The Mariner left it outside when he went in.The Whales name was Smiler, and the Mariner was called Mr. HenryAlbert Bivvens, A.B. The little Stute Fish is hiding under the Whalestummy, or else I would have drawn him. The reason that the sea looksso ooshy-skooshy is because the Whale is sucking it all into his mouthso as to suck in Mr. Henry Albert Bivvens and the raft and the jack-knifeand the suspenders. You must never forget the suspenders.
Text Appearing After Image:
How the Whale got his Throat 7 very nubbly, and besides he is making mehiccough. What shall I do ? Tell him to come out, said the Stute Fish. So the Whale called down his own throat tothe shipwrecked Mariner, Come out and be-have yourself. Ive got the hiccoughs. Nay, nay ! said the Mariner. Not so, butfar otherwise. Take me to my natal-shore andthe white-cliffs-of-Albion, and Ill think aboutit. And he began to dance more than ever. You had better take him home, said theStute Fish to the Whale. I ought to havewarned you that he is a man of infinite-resource-and-sagacity. So the Whale swam and swam and swam,with both flippers and his tail, as hard as hecould for the hiccoughs; and at last he saw theMariners natal-shore and the white-cliffs-of-Albion, and he rushed half-way up the beach,and opened his mouth wide and wide andwide, and said, Change here for Winchester,Ashuelot, Nashua, Keene, and stations on theFitchbuvg Road; and just as he said Fitchthe Mariner walked out of his mouth.
