MOLTEN LAVA 
W E were sailing along the east coast of 
      Albemarle Island for we wanted to 
know if the volcano we had seen in eruption 
on Easter Sunday, nearly two months before, 
was still in eruption. We were almost there, 
practically on the Equator, and we recognized 
the columns of smoke half way up the side 
of the mountain. 
  Suddenly a yell came from the bridge and 
the Mate blew the foghorn (which is the way 
we are called to hurry to see something) and 
when we came running out we saw a high 
funnel of bright white smoke rising right out 
of the sea down at the end of a point, a few 
miles ahead of us. It couldn't be spray for it 
was too enormously high and kept right in one 
place.
