"I shall take you with me, Pym, and set off this morning; so be ready by half-past eleven."
"You must have Meg saddled for me and brought to the door at half- past eleven, and I shall want Rattler saddled for Pym at the same time.
Like the fabulous Gordon Pym
, at every moment I expected to see "that veiled human figure, of larger proportions than those of any inhabitant of the earth, thrown across the cataract which defends the approach to the pole."
