From CC CH27 -

The Setting - Teasel and Titmouse are stranded on the mud with falling tide. They sent the Pug William across the mud with a cotton thread tied to his harness, which could be pulled by Tom to obtain a stronger rope that could be used to exchange items between the two stranded ships.

"Got it," shouted Tom. "Well done, whoever thought of
that! Do keep still, William."
As for the subset of that phrase, "WELL DONE," it seems that it was a rather popular expression.

In the following listing, be aware that each quoted line is taken by itself from the text, and is totally unrelated to the lines that may appear here next to it.

Due to different margins settings of TarBoard and your display not matching the line lengths of the original texts, a few of these lines may appear to be "wrapped" on your screen instead of showing up as one line as in the original text.

I hope the above is helpful in our efforts to more knowingly appreciate the details of All Things Ransome.

If anyone spots any typo errors in the above texts, PLEASE let me know so I can correct my master copies. In my browsings while reading from my screen, such erros still do crop up, perhaps to my surprise, but I am always delighted to find them to be able to fix them.

Glad to be of service.
