CHAPTER ONE

"Surely there is plenty of time? You are a young man."
Rodney hesitated for a moment and then spoke the truth.
" I have a feeling, Sir, that things will not be as easy in the future as they are now. If the King of Spain sends an Armada against us, we shall be at war, and war is never conducive to great profits or indeed to the finding of a large treasure trove."
" Yes, I see your point," Sir Harry said, "but do they really believe at Whitehall that the Armada will come?"
" From what I have heard, Sir, there is no doubt at all that the Spaniards are planning an invasion of this country. Every seaman is convinced that sooner or later an attack will be made."
" Why truly, you may be right," Sir Harry said. "Yet, personally, I am optimistic enough to hope that the Queen's diplomacy will be able to prevent it, even at the last moment."
Rodney did not answer. He was among those who thought that Elizabeth's desperate searchings for peace were completely useless. Spain intended war and the best thing England could do was to realize this and be ready to meet her.
" If I give you this money," Sir Harry said, "and, mind you, I have not made up my mind yet whether I shall or not, how soon could you put to sea?"
" In under a month, Sir. The ship I wish to buy belongs to some London merchants. They will sell it for five thousand pounds, and I require the other thousand for provisions and weapons."
" I see." Sir Harry scratched his chin. "You spoke of marriage. Was it your intention to be married before you sail?"
" No, Sir," Rodney answered. "I intend to return from this voyage rich. With my share of the treasure I shall buy an estate and it is then I need a wife to share it with me."
" By St. George ! You are a very determined young man. You seem to have made up your mind exactly how your life shall be planned. Suppose you are killed?"
" In which case, Sir, I would rather not leave a widow."
Sir Harry chuckled.
" That is what I have always thought myself-that I would rather not leave a widow, so instead I have been a widower twice. Phillida is the child of my first marriage. Her mother
