The Brave Captain

“One time on Lake George there came up a terrific thunder storm when a party of us were on our way to a missionary conference at Silver Bay, N.Y. The sky was black and threatening, and the lightning, you never saw sharper, and thunder, you never heard louder, and rain, you never saw more copious, and it beat with such terrific fury right against our poor little steamer that a lady said to me: ‘Well, if it goes down, my all will go too, for they’re with me,’ but it didn’t go and the Captain bravely anchored us in safety.”
