As for the body of the dead Gentleman from San Francisco, it was on its way home, to the shores of the New World, where a grave awaited it. Having undergone many humiliations and suffered much human neglect, having wandered about a week from one port warehouse to another, it finally got on that same famous ship which had brought the family, such a short while ago and with such a pomp, to the Old World. But now he was concealed from the living: in a tar-coated coffin he was lowered deep into the black hold of the steamer. And again did the ship set out on its far sea journey. At night it sailed by the island of Capri, and, for those who watched it from the island, its lights slowly disappearing in the dark sea, it seemed infinitely sad.



Entretanto, el cuerpo del viejo caballero de San Francisco regresaba a su hogar, a un sepulcro en las playas del Nuevo Mundo. Después de haber pasado por muchas humillaciones, por mucho abandono humano, después de haber vagado durante semanas de una aduana a otra, había sido conducido una vez más a aquel mismo famoso barco en el que tan recientemente, con tanta deferencia, había sido conducido al Viejo Mundo. Pero ahora era ocultado a las miradas de los vivos y descendido en su negro ataúd a las. profundidades negras. Y una vez más el barco inició su largo viaje marino. En la noche se alejó de la Isla de Capri. Para quien lo observaba desde aquella isla, había cierta tristeza en las luces del barco que desaparecía lentamente sobre el mar oscuro.
