CHAPTER SIX

there was a look of perfect understanding between them. Both knew that the ship was getting heavier and sinking lower every minute that passed. The white crests of the waves splashing happily against the sides of the ship were as deadly a menace as a Spanish gun.
The pumps, small and never very effective, would be quite useless against such weight of water as the Sea Hawk had shipped during the night and was still taking aboard. It was something that land was in sight. That meant they had anything from fifteen to twenty miles to sail before they reached the nearest point, and God alone knew if that would prove a safe harbour.
Neither Rodney nor Barlow expressed further the fears that were locked within their breasts. The men were set to work cleaning the decks, and the bodies of the dead were sewn tightly into shrouds and laid in a row waiting for Rodney to conduct the burial service.
Having instructed Master Baxter to call him if there was the slightest difficulty in steering, if there was a sail in sight or anything untoward happened, Rodney went below. He would have liked to have a wash and snatch some breakfast, for he had had nothing either to eat or drink since the evening before when they sighted the Spanish carrack, but he knew it would be expected of him first to see the wounded.
With Barlow following him he went below decks. It was dark and the oil lamps flickering from the beams cast long dark shadows. It was desperately hot and even to Rodney, used as he was to the stench and fug of a ship, the atmosphere was stifling. The wounded men lay in a row, some of them cursing blasphemously as the roll of the ship hurt their shattered limbs or made it difficult for them to retain the posture in which they lay.
It was only as he reached the men that Rodney remembered that, having seen Dobson killed, he should have appointed someone to act as surgeon in his place. It was the usual procedure when the ship's surgeon was killed, but he wondered now who on board would have the slightest conception of what that post entailed.
