Excerpt from Mr. Meeson's Will
The only part Of this humble skit, however, that-is meant to be taken seriously, is the chapter which tells Of the loss Of the r.m.s. Kangaroo. I believe it to be a fair, and in the main an accurate account Of what must, and one day will happen upon a large and crowded liner in the event Of such a collision as that described, or Of her rapid foundering from any other cause; and it is a remarkable thing that people who for the most part set a sufficient value on their lives, daily consent to go to sea in ships, the boats Of which could not on emergency possibly con tain half their number.
