4                                    THE LANDING.
The crew was complete : it included a Boots-A maker of Bonnets and Hoods- -
A Barrister, brought to arrange their disputes-And a Broker, to value their goodsj
A Billiard-marker, whose skill was immense, Might perhaps have won more than his share-
But a Banker, engaged at enormous expense, Had the whole of their cash in his care.
There was also a Beaver, that paced on the deck,
Or would sit making lace in the bow: And had often (the Bellman said) saved them
from wreck, Though none of the sailors knew how.
