RKS Literature: A Sailor’s Leave

“A sailor’s liberty is but for one day: yet while it lasts it is perfect. He is under no one’s eye, and can do whatever, and go wherever he pleases. This day, for the first time, I may truly say, in my whole life, I felt the meaning of a term I had often heard-the sweets of liberty. My friend S was with me, and turning our backs upon the vessels, we walked slowly along, talking the pleasure of being our own masters, of the times past, and when we were free in the midst of friends, in America, and the prospect of our return; and planning where we would go, and what we would do when we reached home.”

“Two Year’s Before the Mast” R.H. Dana Jr, 1840
