Context

“By the powers, but I'll teach you better! Cross me, and you'll go where many a good man's gone before you, first and last, these thirty year back—some to the yard-arm, shiver my timbers, and some by the board, and all to feed the fishes. There's never a man looked me between the eyes and seen a good day a'terwards, Tom Morgan, you may lay to that.»
Morgan paused, but a hoarse murmur rose from the others.
«Tom's right,» said one.
«I stood hazing long enough from one,» added another. «I'll be hanged if I'll be hazed by you, John Silver.»” source
