‘Chill as a down-east breeze should be,’
     The Book-man said. “A ghostly touch
The legend has. I'm glad to see
     Your flying Yankee beat the Dutch.”
“Well, here is something of the sort
     Which one midsummer day I caught
In Narragansett Bay, for lack of fish.”
     ‘We wait,’ the Traveller said; ‘serve hot or cold your dish.’
