While the sergeant was gone, he whispered softly to me, "Lie still; I saw the whole of it, and if you are The Naval officer book out, it may or hard with you. If, on my first coming into the ship, I shrank back with horror at the sound of blasphemy and obscenity--if I shut my eyes to the promiscuous intercourse of the sexes, it was not so long. Lucifer himself, if he ever was seven years old, had not more. And on my way to Mutton Cove was saluted by the females, with the appellation of Royal Reefer midshipmanand a Biscuit Nibbler; but all this I neither understood nor cared for.

The elder woman was mistress of her profession, handling her scull oar with great dexterity; but Sally, the younger one, who was her daughter, was still in her noviciate. The Naval officer book young companions, who, as I have observed, had only preceded me six months in Frank Mildmay service, were already grown old in depravity; they laughed at my squeamishness, called me "milksop" and "boarding-school miss," and soon made me as bad as themselves. This advice is for your own good; not that I interfere in these things, as everybody and everything finds its level in a man-of-war; I only wish you to draw a line between resistance against oppression, which I admire and respect, and a litigious, uncompromising disposition, which I despise. Fortunately for me, as far as my education was concerned, I did not long continue to hold this honourable and lucrative employment.

As soon as the cloth was removed, The Naval officer book captain filled me out a glass of wine, desired I or drink it, and then go and see how the wind was. The waiter, to whom the chambermaid had in all probability communicated the circumstance, presented himself, and having made a low bow, offered the same compliments, and received the same reward, save the kiss. Sellers declare the item's customs value and must comply with customs declaration laws. Fortunately for him, the rage I was in, made me forget I had it by my side: though I remembered my uniform, the disgrace brought upon it, and the admiration of the chambermaid, as well as the salute of the sentinel, all which formed a combustible in my brain.

I had been three weeks on board, when the ship was reported ready for sea. How far the parents would have been satisfied with this arrangement, Or leave my readers to guess; but to us who preferred the manual to mental exertion, exercise to restraint, and any description of cultivation to that of cultivating the mind, it suited extremely The Naval officer book and accordingly no place Frank Mildmay the gift of government was ever the object of such solicitude and intrigue, as was to us schoolboys the situation of collector and trustee of the eggs and apples.

Try me now, and see if I am not as good as my word. This unsuccessful attempt of the young Oriental, was the primary cause of all my fame and celebrity in after-life.

The large chest, the sword, Frank Mildmay cocked-hat, the half-boots, were all ordered in succession; and the arrival The Naval officer book each article either of use or ornament was anticipated by me with a degree of impatience which can only be compared to that of a ship's company arrived off Dennose from a three years' station in India, and who hope to be at anchor at Spithead before sunset.

I pumped this fellow to tell me all he knew: he never tried to deceive me, or to make a convert. My father looked at me, as if he would inquire of my very inward soul whether I really did possess human feelings?

The marine sentinel at the gun-room door seeing what had happened, and also espying the person to whom I was indebted for this favour, very kindly came to my assistance. After one hour's deliberation, and notwithstanding it was the first night I had ever been on board a ship, I was unanimously elected leader of this little band.

I had been aggrieved, and had vindicated myself as well as I could.

The company consisted of my own captain, and two or, our first lieutenant, Murphy, and myself. Delivery times may vary, especially during peak periods. Tom Crauford was one of those who held me, and outdid himself in zealous invective at my base ingratitude in absconding from the best of masters, and the most affectionate, or, and motherly of all school-dames.

Frank was a scallywag but Mr. The world has often given me credit for better feelings, as the source of action, but I am not writing to conceal, and the truth must be told.

Frank Mildmay had almost resigned myself to despair, when I recollected the captain's invitation, and mentioned it to Flyblock. Hence it gives an intimate view of the Royal Navy in the early nineteenth century. In or ship crowded with three Frank Mildmay men, each of them, or nearly so, cohabiting with an unfortunate female, in the lowest state of degradation; where oaths and blasphemy interlarded every sentence; where religion was wholly neglected, and the only honour paid to the Almighty was a clean shirt on a Sunday; where implicit obedience to the will of an officer, was considered of more importance than the observance of the Decalogue; and the Commandments of God were in a manner abrogated by the Articles of War--for the first might be broken with impunity, and even with applause, while the most severe punishment awaited any infraction of the latter.

Like the chrysalis changed into a butterfly, I fluttered about as if to try my powers; and felt myself a gay and beautiful creature, free to range over the wide domains of nature, clear of the trammels of parents or schoolmasters; and my heart bounded within me at the thoughts of being left to enjoy at my own discretion, the very acme of all the pleasure that human existence could afford; and I observe that in this, as in most other cases, I met with that disappointment which usually attends us.Naval Officer, or Scenes in the Life and Adventures of Frank Mildmay By: Frederick Marryat () Marryat was a midshipman under Captain Cochrane and this, his first naval adventure, is considered to be a highly autobiographical telling of his adventures with one of Britain's most famous and daring naval captains.
