A passage from the book... Some of the "dramatis personae" introduced--Retrospective glances--Causes of future effects--Our hero's early life at sea--A pirate--A terrible fight and its consequences--Buzzby's helm lashed amidships--A whaling-cruise begun._ Nobody ever caught John Buzzby asleep by any chance whatever. No weasel was ever half so sensitive on that point as he was. Wherever he happened to be (and in the course of his adventurous life he had been to nearly all parts of the known world) he was the first awake in the morning and the last asleep at night; he always answered promptly to the first call; and was never known by any man living to have been seen with his eyes shut, except when he winked, and that operation he performed less frequently than other men.
