  2. I was wondering about your absence, Lizzy. Welcome back from Montana! We are finally entering the home stretch of this project. Only 35 more pages.

  3. Lizzy, the end is coming with frightening rapidity at this point. Which makes me a little sad, actually. But it is inevitable.

    This ship, The Delight, has seen terrible battle with Moby Dick. The ship is wounded, both spiritually and literally. The Delight's deck is littered with the shattered remnants of whale boats that have been destroyed by Moby Dick. This is the last ship that The Pequod meets before the battle with Moby Dick, and is in every sense a harbinger of the death that awaits Ahab and his crew.
