FABLES

I. - THE PERSONS OF THE TALE.


AFTER the 32nd chapter of TREASURE ISLAND, two of the puppets 
strolled out to have a pipe before business should begin again, and 
met in an open place not far from the story.

"Good-morning, Cap'n," said the first, with a man-o'-war salute, 
and a beaming countenance.

"Ah, Silver!" grunted the other.  "You're in a bad way, Silver."

"Now, Cap'n Smollett," remonstrated Silver, "dooty is dooty, as I 
knows, and none better; but we're off dooty now; and I can't see no 
call to keep up the morality business."

"You're a damned rogue, my man," said the Captain.

"Come, come, Cap'n, be just," returned the other.  "There's no call 
to be angry with me in earnest.  I'm on'y a chara'ter in a sea 
story.  I don't really exist."
