This is from To Have and Have Not by Ernest Hemingway.
Can anyone help me with the following sentence: "I saw her a couple of days ago on Ed. Taylor's ways, he checked."
There are two speedboats that could catch us, Harry was thinking. One, Ray’s, is running the mail from Matecumbe. Where is the other? I saw her a couple of days ago on Ed. Taylor’s ways, he checked. That was the one I thought of having Bee-lips hire. There’s two more, he remembered now. One the State Road Department has up along the keys. The other’s laid up in the Garrison Bight.
I don't understand this "Ed." and "Taylor's ways."
