Excerpt: ...would have leapt into the river, but Sedgefield, one of the "savages" who had jumped upon the raft, was just in time to clutch him by the arm and hold him back. "Look, Moncrief That's Percival, isn't it?" Harry stood, trembling in every limb, on the edge of the raft, and followed the direction of Sedgefield's finger. Yes, Percival it was. Cut off from the games of his companions, left entirely to himself, he had brought out his rod and line to pass an hour or so angling. While thus occupied, he had heard the shouts and cries raised by the "savages" on the opposite bank. "What's wrong?" he asked himself, as he stood quite still and listened. The shouting grew louder; the yells more unearthly, and in a tongue, as it seemed to him, he had never heard before. Dropping his rod, he raced along the bank, just in time to to see from a distance the raft push off with the boys upon it, and the disaster that followed, as it floated further into the stream. He paused for an instant as he breathlessly watched the scene; then raced forward at full speed, flung off his jacket, waistcoat, and boots, and struck out, hand over hand, to where Hibbert was struggling in the water. Fortunately, Paul was a powerful swimmer. Even in his cradle his father had taken his little hand in his large one, and, while looking lovingly in his face, had said to the wife who sat beside him: "The son of a sea-dog, the son of a sea-dog He must never know the fear of water." Alas it was the cruel water which had carried off the father, but the son had grown up true to his wish
