Mrs. Cluppins was in the wrong boat. Her passage was taken for Putney, and she had boarded the outward bound Greenwich packet. The engines had already effected several revolutions, when she discovered her mistake. She made one bold dash for the shore, but fell short, and glided gently down the stream. Ah remarked the weather -beaten commodore, as he paced the bridge, some people never know when they're well off.
