9781332149957: Learn How to Swim: Pointers About Swimming and Aquatics (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Learn How to Swim: Pointers About Swimming and Aquatics

Having been authoritatively informed that I was born in Lambeth, England, October 26th, 1867, I have long since accepted that assurance with passive resignation, and incidentally refer to this most important event in my life's history, only because I believe it to be a wise and excellent idea, when a task is undertaken, to commence right at the beginning. From my earliest recollection. "Water" has been my paramount thought. Long before I cherished the remotest idea of entering the field of professional swimmers, I could, as the saying goes, "swim like a duck." It must, however, be understood that I use the above quotation only in a comparative sense, because to swim absolutely like a duck would undoubtedly prove a disastrous venture for ordinary mortals. In my present condition of proficiency and confidence as an expert, pardon me for asserting that I can now swim better than a duck. During my professional career the press has generously conferred upon me many unique, but suggestive titles, among them, "The Modern Mermaid," "Neptune's favored daughter," "The Water Nymph" and "Naiad of the deep." I am grateful for the fact that my nature is not susceptible to flattery otherwise the success I have attained might have proved a question of serious doubt.
