Sailing in from R John Wright is the Palmer Cox Brownie....

.... The Sailor.

This whimsical character made his appearance in Palmer Cox's charming book of verses titled The Brownies, their Book first published in 1887, begins with the following notation:

Brownies, like fairies and goblins,
are imaginary sprites who are supposed to delight
in harmless pranks and helpful deeds.
They work and sport while weary households sleep,
and never allow themselves to be seen
by mortal eyes.
