Through this time we are nearing the fresh new appointed spot

The fresh artisans shaped upwards throughout the bows of my personal steamer, and you can strike to the good skittish polka; the brand new asses mounted protect through to this new gangway as well as the violation-office; and you may currently 114 immediately after, for the loved ones events out of father, mommy, and you may children, in the form of backup partners or perhaps in that solitary youth, anyone started initially to come abreast of all of us because of the carful on a time: 4 to 6 hundred or so perhaps, that have a strong Italian language taste, and all of merry just like the students. When this type of had been shepherded agreeable, while the inescapable later part of the 2 or 3 had attained the fresh idst the fresh cheering of social, this new hawser are cast-off, and then we plunged into bay.

And today view the new honorary steward regarding hr regarding responsibility and magnificence; come across me personally circulate in the midst of the group, radiating affability and you will wit, liberal with my sweetmeats and you may cigars. I say unblushing what to hobble-dehoy girls, tell timid more youthful persons here is the married man’s ship, roguishly ask this new abstracted if they are thinking about the sweethearts, provide paterfamilias a cigar, are hit on the charm and you will build interested in learning this regarding mamma’s youngest, which (I assure their own gaily) might be a person prior to their mom; or perhaps it could happen to me, from the practical expression out of their particular face, one she’s men of great guidance, and i also ask their unique positively in the event the she understands one instance lovely put on the latest Saucelito or San Rafael coastline-towards world of your picnic is obviously said to be not sure. The following time I’m on my giddy badinage having the students women’s, wakening wit whenever i wade, and you will making in my own aftermath applausive statements regarding “Actually Mr. Dodd an amusing guy?” and you will “O, I do believe he’s only as well sweet!”

One hour which have enacted within airy manner, We initiate through to my personal rounds afresh, having a bag loaded with colored passes all the that have pins connected, and all sorts of that have legible inscriptions: “Old Germany,” “California,” “True love,” “Old Fogies,” “La Belle France,” “Green Erin,” “The Belongings away varme Karibia kvinner from Cakes,” “Arizona,” “Bluish Jay,” “Robin Purple-Breast”-twenty of each and every denomination; for in terms of brand new luncheon i sit back because of the 20s. Speaking of marketed that have anxious tact-having, in reality, this is 115 more delicate section of my personal characteristics-but externally that have reckless unconcern, amidst new gayest flutter and dilemma; and so are once sported through to caps and you may bonnets, to your tall diffusion of cordiality, complete strangers hailing each other from the “how many their mess”-therefore we humorously name it-and deck ringing having whines out-of, “Here, all of the Blue Jays toward save!” otherwise, “I say, was I by yourself within this blame’ watercraft? ”

Isn’t there don’t Californians?

“Master,” I state, during the clear, emphatic tones, heard everywhere, “the majority of the providers appear to be in preference of the little cove past One-Tree Point.”

I am not saying precisely clear on in which you imply; but simply your sit here and you may airplane pilot me

I actually do, pointing with my rod. I actually do pilot your, on the inexpressible amusement of picnic, to own I’m (why would I deny they?) the popular people. We decrease from the lips of a good grassy valley, watered because of the a beneficial brook and set in the pines and you may redwoods. The brand new anchor are laid off, brand new boats is actually reduced-two of all of them currently packed with the materials of a keen impromptu bar-in addition to Leader Ring, accompanied by the new resplendent asses, complete another, and you may circulate shoreward with the welcoming strains out of “Buffalo Gals, would not you come out so you can-night?” It is an integral part of the program this of the asses should, from pure clumsiness, during so it embarkation, shed a great dummy axe on water, whereupon brand new mirth of the picnic can rarely end up being assuaged. Up on you to celebration the latest dummy axe floated, while the make fun of turned into rather the wrong way.
