Steamer in fog

(by Heather Hernandez, Technical Services Librarian)

This week we're offering another instructive rhyme from Nautical Nursery Rhymes by Billy Ringbolt, which resides in the Peterson, Peter H. (Capt.) Papers, (SAFR 18665, HDC 571):

Steamer in fog

A steamer in fog is always bound,
If underway, her whistle to sound;
Not more than one minute must ever elapse,
Without sounding this signal to keep off mishaps.
