CHAPTER FOUR

"We planned that Francis should sham being sick or even make himself ill by eating something which would disagree with him; and then, while the preparations for the voyage went ahead, Father began to boast that Francis was setting out to fight the Spaniards.
" He has always been ashamed that Francis was not like himself, brave and robust, and now he had the opportunity to prove to his friends and neighbours that his son was no different from any other boy. People came to call-they congratulated Francis, they wished him `God speed', they even brought gifts for his comfort.
" We soon saw that it would be impossible without loss of honour and decency for Francis to draw back at the last moment. It was then, when he swore that nobody would make him go aboard, that I had an idea how to save him."
" To come yourself!" Rodney ejaculated.
" Yes, exactly," Lizbeth answered. "Father had agreed that I should accompany Francis to Plymouth. I think he had an idea that Francis would run away, but if I were there, I would be able to prevent him. Four servants came with us and Father's instructions were that they were to see Francis aboard and then bring me back. He was taking no chances, you see.
" We started off from Camfield with a crowd of friends to say good-bye to us and Father as proud as a turkey cock because Francis was off to do what he would like to have done at his age-or now for that matter. All the way to Plymouth I tried to persuade Francis to change his mind, to sail with you, to see the world, to force himself to endure the punishment which Father had given him, no matter how hard it might be.
" But Francis would not listen ; he drew his dagger and swore on the Bible that he would use it on himself if I didn't save him from what he believed to be a living hell on earth.
" Last night we put up at an inn and it was then I realized that there was no chance of turning Francis from his purpose or of changing his mind. He was determined not to come on this voyage, even if it should cost him his life, so I was forced to agree to his wishes.
