1908. Jacobs is known especially for his sea stories. His
familiarity with the wharves and the people who frequented them
gave him material for these stories. He is also known for some of
his short ghost tales and stories of mystery and the macabre, such
as the Monkey's Paw. Sailors' Knots begin: Sailormen ain't wot you
might call dandyfied as a rule, said the night-watchman, who had
just had a passage of arms with a lighterman and been advised to
let somebody else wash him and make a good job of it; they've got
too much sense. They leave dressing up and making eyesores of
theirselves to men wot 'ave never smelt salt water; men wot drift
up and down the river in lighters and get in everybody's way. See
