Summary

The Captain leaves the south seas and sails his whaling ship into the port town of Seven Isles Bay. There he falls in love with Margaret, one of a set of twins. Susette is identical to her sister, except for a small scar on the forehead. The mother of the girl opposes the skipper's courtship because he is a Protestant. Margaret is determined to elope with the skipper but the plan is overheard by Susette who informs her mother; Margaret is locked in her room. Susette herself keeps the tryst and goes aboard the ship. The deception is found out in the morning and the skipper takes her back to her mother. During the night however, Margaret, through grief and shock, has died. The skipper, on approaching town, hears the tolling of the funeral bell and is overcome with grief. The legend states that even to this day a phantom ship, a ghost of the skipper's "Breeze", is sometimes seen far out at sea, but on approach of the ship to the shore, it fades into the mist.
