Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 141910229X, Paperback)Here the captain sat down on the foot of the bed, and glancing at a dreadful libel on Kitty which ornamented the wall,--the production of some wandering limner, whom the captain secretly admired as having studied portraiture from the figure-heads of ships,--motioned to the young man to take the rush-chair on the other side of the small round table. That done, the captain put his hand in the deep breast-pocket of his long-skirted blue coat, and took out of it a strong square case-bottle.

One of a series of episodic tales that Charles Dickens originally published in serial form, "A Message From the Sea" has one of the most beloved fiction writers in British literary history turning his attention to a quaint seaside village and the encounter between its residents and a hoary crew of sailors that wash up on its shore. A must-read for Dickens buffs or fans of nautically themed tales.
