There was a shout to man the main topsail halliards ; Rodney watched a rush up the rigging as the men scurried from the halliards to the braces while a roar forward told him that the moorings were slipped.

Rodney had a sudden vision of Phillida. For a moment she seemed to stand beside him, so beautiful that she dazzled him. As he said good-bye to England, so he wished now he could say good-bye to Phillida-not as he had done on leaving Camfield, touching her cold hand with his lips, but as his seamen said good-bye to their sweethearts and wives.
He should have kissed Phillida on the mouth ; he should have infused her with his own fire. Now in retrospect he could hardly credit that he had been so foolish as to let her keep him at arms' length.
