Jim at this came running out of the cave with a face of joy, a bag of ship-biscuit, and a lot of other things.
We wound up the evening with ship-biscuit and brandy-and-water—ration brandy—French—superb.
We made porridge, for we had still a good supply of oatmeal, and of ship-biscuit.
On the third day the white bread had become as hard as ship-biscuit, so that we had to break it up and soak it in water.
Oatmeal or ship-biscuit ought always to be given, if alone the better, else rice upon which gravy has been poured.
