     "Why, pap and mam and sis and Miss Hooker; and if you'd take your ferryboat and go up there--"

     "Up where? Where are they?"

     "On the wreck."

     "What wreck?"

     "Why, there ain't but one."

     "Good land! what are they doin' THERE, for gracious sakes?"

     "Well, they didn't go there a-purpose."

     "I bet they didn't! Why, great goodness, there ain't no chance for 'em if they don't git off mighty quick! Why, how in the nation did they ever git into such a scrape?"

     "Yes, Booth's Landing--go on."
