This is Beard's first command. Captain Beard intends to scuttle the Judea there to put out the fire, and then resurface her and resume the voyage to Bangkok. We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your visiting. The crew of the Judea is forced to send the steamer on without them while they attempt to save possibly most of the ship's gear for the underwriters. "Youth" is an autobiographical short story. Heart of Darkness too. One of them, Marlow, gets control of the conversation and begins to tell about his own first experience as a second mate on a ship called Judea. Near the coast of Western Australia, the cargo spontaneously combusts. This reminds the reader that those young times have passed, and maybe there is a little bit of nostalgia in Marlows speech. One hundred and ninety miles out from Java Head, the gases in the hull explode and blow up the deck; Marlow is hurled into the air and falls on the burning debris of the deck.
