Wreck of La Belle Sauvage

Wreck of La Belle Sauvage

from 'The History of Red Fallows, Gentleman Merchant' by Frederick Garring:

"...Finnean 'Red' Fallows refused to admit his ship was even sinking.

'Cowards!' he cried as the waters crested over the deck. 'Weaklings the lot of you! A true man stays at his post! A true Captain stays with his ship! A true Man of Fortune stays with his treasure!'" ...
