: The carousing of seamen on board the whaling ships of Greenland… how’s that for specific? Only seamen aboard Greenland whaling ships. That’s all. On board an English whaling ship? Doesn’t count. On board a Greenland lobster boat? Doesn’t count. Greenland whaling vessel? Now you’re talking.
: The whaling can wait. True Greenland seamen need to unwind amidst an orgy of drunken violence and mallemaroking.
