Cautery iron at the ready, Master Christopher and Mistress Agnes attempted to embark upon the Celebrity Eclipse. Master Christopher was obliged to consign his tools to the hold but the unsuspecting officials allowed them on board. Somewhat perplexed by the absence of mast or rigging, Master Christopher was spied sunning himself on deck. More worryingly, many of the fellow travellers were from a country that, as far as Master Christopher is concerned, has not been discovered yet.
After a few days at sea, Master Christopher’s presence is justified. His offer to amputate a fellow passenger’s arm, after she sustained a serious injury, was declined but he did get the opportunity to wield clyster and trepan to an appreciative audience. Despite the glint in Master Christopher’s eye, Master Rob even survived to tell the tale.
