At Last

At Last We, Too, Were Crossing The Atlantic. At Last The Dream Of
Forty Years, Please God, Would Be Fulfilled, And I Should See (And
Happily, Not Alone) The West Indies And The Spanish Main. From
Childhood I Had Studied Their Natural History, Their Charts, Their
Romances, And Alas! Their Tragedies; And Now, At Last, I Was About
To Compare Books With Facts, And Judge For Myself Of The Reported
Wonders Of The Earthly Paradise. We Could Scarce Believe The
Evidence Of Our Own Senses When They Told Us That We Were Surely On
Board A West Indian Steamer, And Could By No Possibility Get Off It
Again, Save Into The Ocean, Or On The Farther Side Of The Ocean; And
It Was Not Till The Morning Of The Second Day, The 3d Of December,
That We Began To Be Thoroughly Aware That We Were On The Old Route
Of Westward-Ho, And Far Out In The High Seas, While The Old World
Lay Behind Us Like A Dream.
