Description -

From title page: "This story received a prize of five hundred dollars offered by the youth's companion"

 

"Jarvis, being only thirteen years old, was the youngest midshipman on board the Constellation, but the most troublesome; and although this was a good while ago - in 1800 - scapegraces like Jarvis are still common enough on board naval ships to this day.  If the officer of the deck were out of sight for five minutes, Jarvis was certain to be turning a double hand-spring, or standing on his head, or engaged in some similar iniquity on the quarter deck..."
