CHAPTER SIX

DAWN came with a magical suddenness in the Caribbean Sea. One moment all was dark save for the stars twinkling overhead, and the next instant great pink hands swept the sable from the sky and it was day.
Haggard and hollow-eyed from lack of sleep, Rodney's expression, as his eyes swept the sea, was echoed by every officer and man on deck and the sigh of relief which welled up in every breast was as audible as the splash of the waves against the ship's side and the creak of the rigging as the sails bellied out above them.
There was nothing in sight. Rodney heard Barlow ejaculate, "Praise the Lord!" and while he felt inclined to say the same, he managed to keep a dignified silence, for all that he longed to shout aloud his joy and relief.
It had been a night of unending anxiety. Almost as soon as it was dark, the wind began to blow heavily from the southeast. Rodney altered course again so that the Sea Hawk was carried in the direction of the American coast ; but at the same time there were innumerable dangers in proceeding at such a speed in the darkness in those practically uncharted seas.
There was every likelihood of their running into an island, rocks or sandbanks that were not marked on the charts ; apart from that, at the rate at which they were going they might easily reach the main shore itself. But the risk had to be taken. The Spanish ship would be on the look-out for them as soon as the dawn broke ; and what was more, there was always a chance of their encountering other ships as they got nearer to the coast.
In the hours of darkness Rodney had felt a depression settle upon him more intense than anything he had ever known in his life before. He had faced death hundreds of time in the past ten years, he had known sickness and had felt despairingly that he would never reach home alive ; but this agony of anxiety seemed to be a foretaste of hell.
