Description: 

Horace returns from France on a ship that sails from Brest, France. When his experiments with glassblowing start a fire in his cabin, the captain asks him to stop until they reach land, "what with all the men on board" (158). This last detail suggests the ship is carrying American troops home, though Horace himself was a noncombatant.
