Hutcheson, John C: The White Squall. V1. 25 July 2009

John Conroy Hutcheson (1840- 1897) was a British author of novels and short stories about life aboard ships at sea.
Hutcheson was born in Jersey, Channel Islands, in 1840, and died in Portsea Island, in late 1896 or early 1897.

Excerpt
Tom is a thirteen year-old whose father is a Naval Officer onthe half-pay list. This dates the events, for Tom has read twoof Captain Marryatt’s books, which were published in the 1830s,while his father would have been recalled to duty in time forthe Crimean War, so we’ll put the date down as the 1840s.
The action starts in the West Indies, where Tom’s father has bought a property. Tom has an accident on his way to meet his father on the way from a short visit to another island. Tom is to be sent to an English school, and on his recovery he is taken down to the harbour, and put in charge of a ship’s Captain. The journey back to England has every misadventure that can be thought of, including a White Squall, which we would probably today call a Line Squall. The vessel is capsized. How do they recover it?
Eventually they arrive in England. And that is the end of the story, which really is an introduction to ships for young persons of about thirteen years of age. It isn’t too long, and you’ll enjoy it.
