First sentence: "I was born of a respectable family in the city of York, where my father, who was a native of Bremen, settled, after having gained a handsome estate by merchandise; my head was very early filled with rambling thoughts; but my father often persuaded me to settle in some business, and my mother used the tenderest entreaties, yet nothing could prevail upon me to lay aside my desire of going to sea, notwithstanding the extreme uneasiness which my father and mother always shewed at the thoughts of my leaving them."
