The Red Rover Part 2

The Weight Of The Tempest Had Been Felt At That Hapless Moment When Earing
And His Unfortunate Companions Were Precipitated From Their Giddy
Elevation Into The Sea. Though The Wind Continued To Blow Long After This
Fatal Event, It Was With A Constantly Diminishing Power. As The Gale
Decreased The Sea Began To Rise, And The Vessel To Labour In Proportion.
Then Followed Two Hours Of Anxious Watchfulness On The Part Of Wilder,
During Which The Whole Of His Professional Knowledge Was Needed In Order
To Keep The Despoiled Hull Of The Bristol Trader From Becoming A Prey To
The Greedy Waters. His Consummate Skill, However, Proved Equal To The Task
That Was Required At His Hands; And, Just As The Symptoms Of Day Were
Becoming Visible Along The East, Both Wind And Waves Were Rapidly
Subsiding Together. During The Whole Of This Doubtful Period Our
Adventurer Did Not Receive The Smallest Assistance From Any Of The Crew,
With The Exception Of Two Experienced Seamen Whom He Had Previously
Stationed At The Wheel. But To This Neglect He Was Indifferent; Since
Little More Was Required Than His Own Judgment, Seconded, As It Faithfully
Was, By The Exertions Of The Manners More Immediately Under His Eye.
