Highly detailed depiction of a late eighteenth century ship of war, of the third rate. A glimpse below decks.
We’ve been people for a very long time, I believe Francis Collins and Richard Dawkins say about 100, 000 to 250 000 years respectively.
Mrs Chippy was a tomcat aboard the Endurance commanded by Shackleton on his trans-Antarctic expedition in 1914. While they were in the south Atlantic Mrs Chippy fell overboard. The Endurance came about and hauled her back in. However, on October 29th 1915, after his ship was crushed by ice in the Weddel Sea, Shackleton wrote:
“This afternoon Sallie’s three youngest pups, Sue’s Sirius, and Mrs. Chippy, the carpenter’s cat, have to be shot. We could not undertake the maintenance of weaklings under the new conditions. Macklin, Crean, and the carpenter seemed to feel the loss of their friends rather badly.”
