'Green Sailors to the Rescue!' by Gilbert Hackforth-Jones
2-' Yacht for Sale '
Production by Josephine Plummer
' Last week I told you how we decided to go to Uncle George's rescue because we thought he hadn't enough money to keep Rag Doll going. Then we discovered that we were on the wrong tack and that Uncle George, far from giving up his sailing activities, had plans for buying a bigger and better boat. This meant that he would first have to sell Rag Doll. Of course we all thought that the moment Uncle George let it be known that Rag Doll was for sale people would come from the ends of the earth to buy the most beautiful boat in the world but Uncle George said things in real life didn't always happen the way they should'
