CHAPTER XVIII

THE POLAR JOURNEY (continued)

This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall, ... 
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England,
This nurse, this teeming womb of royal kings, ... 
This land of such dear souls, this dear, dear land. 

                                                                                                SHAKESPEARE.
