After all, I got room and board, pleasant accommodations, good company, and the adulation of the crowd. What more could I want? Yes, put me at the center of attention, wherever I am, and I shall be h...appy. True, I itch to get back to Boston and await Jaimy’s return, but this is all right for now. Food’s good, too.
After seeing Higgins and Mairead off with promises of joining them again in the spring, if not sooner, we have moved on from Wareham and are set up at New Bedford, Massachusetts, and I am glad of that. Even though Edgar Polk had said he would not peach on me, I feel better being some distance from Plymouth.
I have appointed Rigger O’Rourke factotum, as he seems most qualified. Furthermore, he has been told he is to take over as manager in the event of my sudden departure. I have furnished him with the checkbook and the address of Faber Shipping Worldwide, and said that I expect the circus to pay. He nods and smiles, especially when I tell him he will receive ten percent off the top for his services.
