CHAPTER SIX

be sorry that as a man he was dead, but from any other point of view his death was vastly inconvenient. On a voyage of this sort a ship's surgeon was a vital necessity, and although they usually killed as many men as they saved, they at least had some knowledge of their profession, however inadequate.
As he moved forward now in the darkness, disliking the heat, the smell of bilge and unwashed bodies, Rodney tried to remember all that he had learned when he was with Drake. That amazing man had a vast knowledge of medicine. He had studied the uses of healing herbs, and the men with whom he sailed would rather have trusted him to doctor them than any surgeon, however skilled by reputation.
But as he tried to recall what he had seen and heard, Rodney felt helpless. He could not be certain that his memory was to be relied on and in reality, he thought, he was as inexperienced in the matter as the merest cabin boy.
It was then, as he reached the men, that the wavering light of the lantern showed him a kneeling figure by one of them. Someone had the doctor's polished case with all its paraphernalia of bottles open on the floor. Rodney started as the swaying lantern light flickered on a red-gold head and he saw who knelt there.
Lizbeth was bandaging a man's arm while he swore one resounding oath after another at the pain his wounds were giving him.
" Quiet there!" Rodney's voice was crisp and authoritative and the man was instantly silent ; and then he stared down at Lizbeth, not knowing what to say.
It was a shock seeing her tending a half-naked man in such a manner. No decent or superior woman was interested or concerned with the dirty work of nursing. Gin-drinking old women might hire themselves out as midwives, women of the lower orders without any training or special skill took up nursing as an inferior means of livelihood; but in the main it was men's work to look after the sick, and at sea, as on the shore, the weakest and most inefficient men were ordered to such a menial and unimportant task.
And yet it was difficult in the circumstances for Rodney to know what to say. He would have liked, if he could have
