Moby Dick Ch. 20: All Astir

The following is from a work-in-progress called "Moby Dick: a Book Report" in which I read each chapter of Herman Melville's classic novel Moby Dick, and write about what I read.

Bildad, Peleg, and the crew of the Pequod make the ship ready for departure, stocking up on all the necessary supplies for a three-year voyage.  Bildad’s sister Charity helps outfit the ship for its long journey.  She also leaves Christian tracts for the sailors.  Ahab is still yet to be seen, a fact which causes Ishmael some anxiety.
