CHAPTER FOUR

precious son, you are mistaken. When we return, he shall know the truth."
" When we return, it will not matter much," Lizbeth said.
" In the meantime, what am I to do with you?" Rodney enquired. "God's pity, was there ever such a situation?"
" I suggest there is very little you can do about it," Lizbeth answered. "I do not know whether you have told anyone aboard the age of Master Gillingham ; but when I looked at myself in Francis' clothes with my hair done like a boy, I thought I looked a not unpleasant lad of say fourteen or fifteen."

" I am not afraid," Lizbeth said simply, "and frankly, I think I am no more likely to die than Francis. I am far stronger than he has ever been."
" It is intolerable," Rodney said; "and to think that I must lower myself to lie and prevaricate to my officers and to the men who trust me. If you should be discovered, what then?"
" You must swear that you had no idea of my sex," Lizbeth
