must attend to the living. The Sea Hawk was moving heavily and was much lower in the water than she had been the day before. He looked round for Barlow and saw that he had gone below.
For a moment it appeared that the damage was not great; and yet Rodney remembered only too clearly the sound of the last shot entering the Sea Hawk's hull. He had wondered frequently through the night how much damage had been done, but he dared not leave the deck, believing that, when it came to a matter of picking up the sound of a wave beating over a rock, or sensing danger before it was quite upon them, his ears and senses were better than those he commanded. But now he began to be troubled, and Barlow's face, when he came on deck a few minutes later, told him the worst.
" How deep?" Rodney asked before Barlow could speak.
" Seven feet and more, Sir."
" Where is the hole?"
" A foot above the water-line, Sir. She would be all right in a dead calm sea, but the waves were beating in all last night."
" Can we fother a sail and get it over the hole?" Rodney asked.
" I'm afraid it is too bad for that, Sir. The water we have already shipped will make it impossible for the men to work below. We can try, of course, and the men are at the pumps, but the hole is about three feet across."
There was nothing they could do save get the ship ashore and mend her properly. The trouble was, how? They must find a place where they could lie undisturbed long enough to make the necessary repairs. It was at that moment that the look-out shouted "Land ho, Sir!"
Rodney looked at Barlow.
" We will have to find the best place we can," he said briefly. "What is the casualty list?"
" Two men killed besides Mister Dobson, Sir, and twelve wounded."
" Then do the best you can for them," Rodney said, "and get the dead ready for burial. We must make for the shore, the wind shows no sign of abating."
Rodney spoke impersonally, but his eyes met Barlow's and
