"at ten o"clock yesterday evening little Jem Parsons (the cabin boy), and his friend the black terrier, came on deck, and sat themselves on a gun-carriage, to read by the light of the moon. I looked at the boy"s book, (the terrier, I suppose, read over the other"s shoulder,) and found that it was ""The Sorrows of Werter"". I asked who had lent him such a book, and whether it amused him? He said that it had been made a present to him, and so he had read it almost through, for he had got to Werter"s dying; though, to be sure, he did not understand it all, nor like very much what he understood; for he thought the man a great fool for killing himself for love. I told him I thought that every man a great fool who killed himself for love or for any thing else: but he had no books but ""The Sorrows of Werter""? - oh dear yes, he said, he had a great many more; but he had got ""The Adventures of a Louse"", which was a very curious book, indeed; and he had got besides ""The Recess"", and ""Valentine and Orson"", and ""Roslin Castle"", and a book of Prayers, just like the Bible; but he could not but say that he liked ""The Adventures of a Louse"" the best of any of them."
