He was comfortable with the captain, whom he admired greatly and in whose company he spent much time in this stratified community, and also with those below decks, enjoying their conviviality.
This was a formative experience for the young man.
The total haul was a poor one for nearly six months at sea, just two whales, 3, seals, five polar bears, two narwhals, twelve elephant seals and miscellaneous seabirds.

He exhibits little sentiment, happy to shoot rare seabirds with no thought of his impact on the survival of the species.
Nothing seemed sacred, and while he may have felt a twinge of remorse occasionally, it did not stay his hand, and he happily took part in the slaughter, priding himself on being a better shot than many of his shipmates.

Where they were folded over, the relevant pages have been reproduced twice, once with the picture folded to show the text, and once with it unfolded.

This is topped and tailed with an introduction and afterword.
