CHAPTER ONE

For a moment he held the arrow in his hand, undecided whether to keep it or to throw it away; then he chucked it down on the grass and, mounting his horse, continued his ourney down the drive.
The interlude had been unexpected and amusing. If Sir Harry's daughter was as attractive as the red-haired wench he had just kissed he would not regret the decision he had made before he left London. It was his god-father who had put the idea of marriage into his head.
" I have known Harry Gillingham since he was a boy," he told Rodney. "He is, if it pleases him, as generous as he is rich; but he expects value for his money, and as far as I know he has always obtained it. If you want him to finance you, you will have to offer something in return."
" He will get paid a good dividend right enough," Rodney replied.
The Queen's Secretary of State, Sir Francis Walsingham, smiled.
" Let us hope that you can give us the four thousand seven hundred per cent that Drake paid after his voyage round the world!"
" 'Tis not as easy as it was," Rodney admitted. "The Spaniards are growing wary, the gold ships are guarded; but if I can get my ship, I will bring home the booty even as Drake has done. I have not sailed with him for these past ten years without learning something of the trade."
" I would put up all the money myself if I had it," Sir Francis sighed, his sallow, thoughtful face regretful. "The last venture in which I invested brought me ten thousand pounds, but at the moment I cannot spare more than two. You can have that with my blessing, and an introduction to Harry Gillingham, asking him to supply the rest."
" What will he expect of me?" Rodney asked.
"Yes, we must not forget that," his god-father said, smiling. "Harry has a daughter of marriageable age. There are rumours that he won't bring her to London because his new wife is ealous of her. Try your hand there, my boy. A man with a young wife is always ready to be rid of the tangles and burdens of family life."
