CHAPTER THREE

"God's death! I knew it. I might have guessed that you would disobey my orders. I told you that I would not have you going there to listen to seditious talk, to be involved in some Papist plot. I forbade you the house, did I not?"
" Yes, Sir."
" And yet you have defied me. You creep out when I am asleep, leaving and entering the house like a thief or a servant rather than as a gentleman. Well, I must teach you a lesson, for I cannot trust you, it seems. You will not go back to Oxford next term, but you will sail with Master Rodney Hawkhurst in his ship for which I have just subscribed a substantial sum of money. We will see if the sea can make a man of you."
" No, I won't go, I won't!" Francis spoke passionately, but his protest lacked conviction. His voice rose shrilly, the voice of a boy, not a man.
" You will obey my orders," Sir Harry replied harshly. "I shall send a letter to Master Hawkhurst to-morrow apprizing him of your arrival. You will get your clothes together and start for Plymouth as soon as it can be arranged. In the meantime you are under orders not to leave this house. Do you understand, you are not to leave this house, nor will you have any communication with Dr. Keen or his daughter? That is my command. If you don't obey me, I will have you locked in your bedroom, and if necessary, chained to your bedpost."
Sir Harry turned as he finished speaking and walking with a dignity which was surprising under the circumstances, withdrew into his bedroom. Catherine followed him. When she reached the door, she looked back. Her smile was a triumph of maliciousness.
Francis made no effort to move when his father and stepmother had gone. He stood staring at the floor, his hands hanging helplessly at his side, his fingers clenched, but limply as if he had not even the energy to square them.
" I won't go, I won't!" he muttered.
Lizbeth pulled him by the sleeve.
" Come into your room," she said urgently.
Shuffling his feet, Francis obeyed her; and when they entered the bedchamber and Lizbeth had closed the door
