Commodore Trunnion and Jack Hathaway--A Scene from Peregrine Pickle, (painting)
Edmonds, F. W.
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 95
The Commodore and Lieut. Hatchway at a public house near the "Garrison" enjoying their "pipe and can." Hatchway, or as he was familiarly called "Jack," at the request of the Commodore takes up a newspaper to read, and is represented as just commencing a paragraph that announced the probable elevation of Admiral Bower to the British peerage--a piece of news which the Commodore pronounced to be "a land-lie," and which, to use his own words, "I will maintain to be a lie, from the spirit-sail yard to the mizen top-sail halyards." Vol. 1., ch. 2. [P. 13.]
