"Mr. Easy, you know the state of the ship; we have everything to do -- new masts, new rigging, everything almost to refit -- and yet you ask to go on shore! Now, sir, you may take this answer for yourself and all the other midshipmen in the ship, that not one soul of you puts his foot on shore until we are all a-taunto." Captain Frederick Marryat. "Chapter XXVI: In which our hero becomes excessively unwell, and agrees to go through a course of medicine." Mr. Midshipman Easy. (1836).
