O.

As the government neglects to allocate him any budget or pay any salaries, the "fleet" is forced to conduct jobbing trade around the coast to keep its sailors fed. But the admiral lives in hope that one day he will receive orders which will enable him to serve his country...

About O. Henry

O. Henry (1862–1910), born William Sydney Porter in Greensboro, North Carolina, was a short-story writer whose tales romanticized the commonplace, in particular, the lives of ordinary people in New York City. His stories often had surprise endings, a device that became identified with his name. He began writing sketches around 1887, and his stories of adventure in the Southwest United States and in Central America were immediately popular with magazine readers.
