CHAPTER FIVE

she had at least ventured no word of them to him. They had run into rough weather in the Bay of Biscay, but although she had looked drawn and white and had eaten very little at rneals, she had not taken to her bed.
" Methinks Master Gillingham can be proud of his belly, Sir," Barlow had said one evening. "Most lads of his age would have been incapacitated by the seas we've just been through."
Rodney felt as if Barlow were reproaching him for the uncomplimentary things he had said when he heard that Francis was coming on board. He snapped back an answer and realized that Barlow thought him unjust and not ready to give credit where credit was due.
It had not made him feel any more kindly towards Lizbeth and he wished that he could encounter some ship returning to England, in which case he had every intention of putting her aboard and sending her home. Lizbeth happily did not know of this intention, and as they sighted the Island of Dominica she was looking forward to their first encounter with the Spaniards as much as any of the men on board.
She had been present when Rodney explained to his officers what his plans were. He would water his ship at the island and then catch the trade wind into the Caribbean Sea. Once there, he would make for Nombre de Dios, a small but important town, which was the terminus of the Panama gold route. The treasure was brought by Spanish ships from the harbours of Peru to Panama. There it was loaded on mules and carried across the isthmus to Nombre de Dios on the Caribbean Sea.
Drake had known of this sixteen years earlier in 1572 when he attacked the mule caravans, taking his crew over land to surprise them before they reached Nombre de Dios. He had made friends of the natives, who had helped him in every possible way, and he had left behind him a legend of kindness and justice which had never been forgotten.
But the Spaniards, having lost cargoes of great value to Drake, had taken care to preserve their gold and now not only was Nombre de Dios an armed fortress, but the treasure ships were guarded all the way back to Spain.
