Moby-Dick, Day 13

Chapter XI: Nightgown

Ishmael and Queequeg again share a bed, but this time companionably. They wake early, before dawn. Ishmael muses on how great it is to feel warm and snug in bed, though he says that part of you must be cold to truly enjoy the warmth of being under covers. They smoke in bed. Queequeg begins to tell Ishmael about himself. No mention is made of a nightgown.
