Front Matter Front matter Covers, Edges and Spine Preliminaries Title Page Main text HARRY FRANCO. CHAPTER I. Being the beginning of the Book, is very properly devoted to the beginning of the Hero. ANCESTRAL. CHAPTER II. Although very short, will contain more than half my life. CHAPTER III. The first impulse which set the locomotive of my destiny in motion. CHAPTER IV. The departure and the journey. CHAPTER V. The Steamboat. CHAPTER VI. My first dinner at a Hotel, and the consequences of taking wine too freely. CHAPTER VII. Shows with what ease a man may enter into a commercial speculation, when he has the means and the inclination so to do. CHAPTER VIII. A school for morals, and the beginning of an adventure. CHAPTER IX. Getting into a Newspaper. CHAPTER X. Recovering from a Julep. CHAPTER XI. Tells of my reception by Mr. Lummucks, and of the manner in which that polite gentleman answered my solicitations. CHAPTER XII. A change of quarters, and a new friend. CHAPTER XIII. A new field, and another speculation. CHAPTER XIV. Like a previous chapter, adds another link to the chain of my adventures, without increasing the intensity of interest which they may have excited. CHAPTER XV. Shows the benefit of studying morals at the theatre, and the difference between falling in love on the stage and off. CHAPTER XVI. Is full of disappointments, and ends with the commencement of a new career. CHAPTER XVII. Will give a peep into a ship's forecastle, and some other places, which the gentle reader may never have had an opportunity of peeping into before, and therefore he is advised not to miss this opportunity of doing so. CHAPTER XVIII. According to promise, relates how Mr. Ruffin was tied to the fife rail, and how the sailors went ashore in the jolly boat, and how they returned again. CHAPTER XIX. Will bring us into port. CHAPTER XX. Relates what happened after getting ashore. CHAPTER XXI. Adventures in the Pampas, a Pampara, &c. CHAPTER XXII. Return to Buenos Ayres and Departure for Rio. CHAPTER XXVII [sic]. Is devoted to a slight sketch of Lieutenant Wallop, and being not at all essential to a proper development of my adventures, may be read or not, as the reader pleases. CHAPTER XXIII [sic]. Continues and ends on Shipboard. A narrow Escape from a flogging, and from Death. CHAPTER XXIX [sic]. Leave Rio, and arrive at New York: a wide interval, but a short chapter.
