by Captain C. F. Horn
' God bless our shores with many wrecks '-that awful prayer, if indeed it .was ever said, was understandable in a way. But Captain Horn got nothing for the eight bags of dollar bills he fished up from the wreck of Flying Enterprise; they were duds. He talks about rescue operations he carried out as Master of Trinity House Patrol Vessels and about the salvage law that regulates the sailor's only hope of sudden fortune.
