CHAPTER FOUR

dared to hope for. Ships' boys, volunteers and a number of craftsmen like the ship's carpenter and blacksmith made up the complement.
Then there were the officers: Barlow and three other lieutenants, Baxter, Gadstone and Walters by name; Hales, the Master; Simson, the Purser; and Dobson the Surgeon-a reputedly good man although Rodney already had his doubts as to the wisdom of engaging him.
He was elderly for one thing and had come aboard with
bloodshot eyes and a thick, repulsive stomach cough which he ;attributed to a thick night ashore, but which Rodney suspected
came from an undermined constitution. However, it was too late now to do anything about it and Rodney hoped that, once they got to sea, this and many more problems would settle themselves.
The pinnace was aboard, the few remaining stores were being taken below. Rodney looked to see that the water-butts were secure in the hold. They were one of the last things he had had filled. He knew only too well what the casks became like after a few months at sea-foul and alive with living things. It was always desirable to put off bringing them on board till the last possible moment.
In a few minutes now they would cast off. A diversion was caused on the quay as a seaman, very unsteady on his legs, was half-dragged, half-supported to the ship by a painted prostitute whom Rodney remembered seeing around the docks on previous occasions. She steadied the man across the gangplank ; then as he fell face downward on the deck, she shouted a cheery, if lewd farewell which raised a roar of laughter from the men working on the deck.
With her hands on her broad hips and her dress open almost to the waist, the harlot exchanged a spirited badinage with those aboard, which was listened to sourly and with disgust by the other women on the quay.
" Make sail, Master Barlow," Rodney said sharply. He could delay no longer.
Everyone should be aboard by now; and as he thought of it, Rodney's expression darkened and he turned to walk impatiently up and down the quarter-deck.
