So he stayed there for a day or so, and then he took off and he landed in Port Mor? ien. And some fellow came down to the wharf, and he said, "Where are you from?" He said, "I'm from Neil's Harbour, and I'm going wherever the fate of God put me right now--I'm through with that place." And he said, "Are you a fisherman?" And he said, "I fished for a good many years." And Jack was old enough to fish. And he said, "When could you go fishing?" "When I get a house." He said, "I'll give you a house, right tonight." He got a fellow to come down and help them take the furniture to the house, and he said, "When are you going fishing?" "I'm going fishing right this evening, because I passed a place--I know where there's a good place to fish." They have that instinct, they know by the land, the lee of the land, whatever--he said, "I know there's a good place to fish, I found it on my way up." And he went out, and they fished all night, and him and Jack came back with a schooner-load of bloody good fresh fish. And he said, "You're the kind of man I want." And he fished for that fellow for years and years, and lived in that house, and that's where I was born.
