Describes a trip for 'clerks and mechanics' organised by the Regent Street Polytechnic Institute, which introduces the men to the natural history of the Norwegian fjords (181). Reports that 'we amused ourselves by watching for whales', and after successfully spotting 'three of Jonah's lifeboats', sang an impromptu concert of hymns (182).
