Subject: happy? – Nov 27 (The Fate of O'Brien)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 27 Nov 05 - 08:39 AM

         You landsmen all, on you I call and gallant seamen too,
        Till I relate the hardships great that lately we went through;
        From Limerick in the breeze to St. John's we set sail,
        On the twenty-seventh of November [1835] in a sweet and pleasant gale.

                "The Sorrowful Fate of O'Brien" in Irish Songs of the Sea, James N. Healy, 1967.

Patrick O'Brien, an apprentice, was eaten by his ship-wrecked comrades of the Francis Spaight.
