Excerpt from Lapstone, or the Sailor Turned Shoemaker The stories themselves which Old Lapstone is represented as relating to the boys in this volume are imaginary. Lapstone made them up to amuse the boys, 'a ndqto reward them for work ing for him in his garden. But all the. Accounts which they con tain in respect tollifegazt, sea, 'aond' the usages and practices of sea faring men, and all the descriptionsirelating to ships, and pilots, and light-houses, and sdiindir'igs, 'add calms, and storms, and other such topics, are strictly true; and they will convey to the readers a great amount of useful information, if they read the book atten tively, and with a desire to understand and remember what they learn by the perusal of it.
