The Cruise of the Jasper B.

by Don Marquis

Under the crust of a commonplace newspaper editor, Clement J. Claggett is a volcano of romance. All his life he has dreamed the wildest dreams. This is the story of his unexpected acquisition of half a million. He takes his hat, tells the boss all the unpleasant facts about him and the paper that he has wished to state for years, and goes forth in search for adventure. He buys the Jasper B., engages a crew. But before he can put his life dreams into action a thousand and one things happen, more remarkable than he has ever pictured!
