Moby Dick Ch. 43: Hark!

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.

In this brief chapter, two ordinary sailors named Archy and Cabaco are working a night-shift on the Pequod when Archy hears something like a strange cough in the bowels of the ship.  Apparently, Archy has a very keen ear.  He says to his fellow sailor, “Hark ye, Cabaco, there is someone down in the after-hold that has not yet been seen on deck.”  This mysterious person is yet to be revealed. Who is it?!
