Moby Dick filet No.72

Olaf Breuning
The Monkey-Rope
"In the tumultuous business of cutting in and attending to a whale, there is much running backwards and forwards among the crew. Now hands are wanted here, and then again hands are wanted there. There is no staying in any one place; for at one and the same time everything has to be done everywhere."

(Beginning of chapter 72)
