Unfortunately for the particular young gentleman there were no black- and- white hats, so Dick bought a coarse white straw with black ribbon round it, and then seized the opportunity- as they sold everything at the little shop, from treacle to thread, and from bacon and big boots to hardware and hats- to buy some fishing- hooks and string, finding fault with the hooks as being soft and coarse, but the man assured him that they were the very best for the sea, so he was content.- "Menhardoc", George Manville Fenn.
