Persons possessed of sluggish livers and tender hearts find two serious drawbacks to the enjoyment of a cruise at sea. It is exceedingly difficult to get enough walking exercise; and it is next to impossible (where secrecy is an object) to make love without being found out. Reverting for the moment to the latter difficulty only, life within the narrow and populous limits of a vessel may be defined as essentially life in public

Collection of short stories published in 1873 and dedicated to Baron Von Tauchnitz. Includes 'Miss or Mrs?', '"Blow up with the Brig!" : a Sailor's Story'; and 'The Fatal Cradle'. The second edition (Chatto & Windus 1875) also includes 'A Mad Marriage' and 6 illustrations.
The title story was a novella originally published as 'Miss or Mrs? a Christmas Story in Twelve Scenes' in The Graphic Christmas Number, 25 December 1871; 200,000 copies were sold. It was republished in book form as Miss or Mrs? and other stories in outline (1873). The story of an emancipated girl of fifteen was considered somewhat shocking when it first appeared. The theme of a secret marriage to a minor and the danger of a charge of abduction was taken from the real-life experience of Collins's close friend, Edward Ward.
