The Brooklyn Paper: Seaworthy

Page 1: Call me Brooklyn Paper. Some weeks ago — never mind how long precisely — having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would look about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen, and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off — then, I account it high time to get to the sea as soon as I can and keep hustlin’, Brooklyn.
