Excerpt from A Floating Home The authors owe to their readers an explanation of the manner of their collaboration. The owner of the Thames sailing barge, of which the history as a habitation is written in this book, is Mr. Cyril Ionides. 'I' throughout the narrative is Mr. Cyril Ionides; the 'Mate' is Mrs. Cyril Ionides; the children are their children. Yet the other author, Mr. J. B. Atkins, was so closely associated with the events recorded - sharing with Mr. Ionides the counsels and discussions that ended in the purchase of the barge, prosecuting in his company friendships with barge skippers, and studying with him the Essex dialect, which nowhere has more character than in the mouths of Essex seafaring men - that it was not practicable for the book to be written except in collaboration. The authors share, moreover, an intenseadmiration for the Thames sailing barges, to which, so far as they know, justice has never been done in writing.
