Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?
I wish it were in the bottom of the Thames, I do; and if Miss Pinkerton were there, I wouldn't pick her out, that I wouldn't. O how I should like to see her floating in the water yonder, turban and all, with her train streaming after her, and her nose like the beak of a wherry."
train = a part of a gown that trails behind the wearer
wherry = light rowing boat for use in racing or for transporting goods and passengers in inland waters and harbors
Thanks for your efforts.
And the beak of the wherry is the front, or pointed end of it.
