Excerpt from Patchwork, Vol. 2 of 3

When, however, there happens to be a brisk wind blowing, the scene is totally different. The ele ments now meet in opposition, for the wind, in stead of slumbering as before, and letting the silent tide have its own placid way, is roused up, and having set itself against the current, sorely puzzles, but rarely baf es entirely, the skill of the seaman. Then it is, that the talents and local knowledge of the pilots, and the hardy intrepidity of the captains, come into play; and men who in the calm of the day before we should not have discovered to be much above their fellows in courage or capacity, now claim their due superiority. At such moments the commander is cheerfully and even eagerly obeyed by those very men who, in the pride of ignorance, and the presumption of security, were far less docile in the calm.
