“The Nancy B”
Recitation; the speaker, tired of lumber camps, signs on as cook of the lumber ship "Nancy B." They anchor in the bay. After only one lighter load, however, a storm comes up. The storm last 16 days; it's cold and hard to cook, but no one complains.
This, like the other pieces probably written by Ellsworth, does not seem to have entered oral tradition. - PJS
