CHAPTER SIX

Quickly, because he could not find the words to refuse her, Rodney sent a ship's boy to his cabin for a bottle.
The man cursed and swore as Lizbeth poured it on his wound, but when she had bound it up he thanked her.
There were three men left to bandage and Rodney waited until Lizbeth had finished with them. There were splinters which had to be extricated from a seaman's burly chest with very inadequate instruments in Dobson's medicine-case. Another man had lost a foot, but Lizbeth knew she could do nothing about the jagged, mutilated limb, which needed amputating. It was a job for the butcher as Dobson was dead, and was best left, Rodney decided, until they could be steady in harbour.
jThe last man was dead. There was a great pool of blood on the floor beside him. There was another stream which had flowed in a sticky trickle from his mouth. His eyes were wide open, startling in their fixed stare, and Rodney's voice was harsh as he gave orders for the man to be carried on deck to oin the other three bodies awaiting burial.
He knew the man well. He was a big, burly man of Devon called Clerihew and had sailed in the Golden Hind on Drake's brilliant exploit when they captured the Cacafuego and sailed home rich with plunder. Now Clerihew was dead, and Rodney felt as if he had lost an old friend. It almost surprised him how much he resented the fact that such a man should die for no good reason. They had achieved nothing, they had run away, and that in itself was more bitter than anything else.
Lizbeth's task was done. She stood up, looked at the row of men bandaged and drugged, and told a man who was not wounded to make them as comfortable as he could.
" 'Tis hot here," she said hesitatingly, conscious of the sweat on her own forehead. "Perhaps they could have some air?"
" They can be taken on deck later," Rodney promised.
He would have promised anything at that moment to get Lizbeth away. He was feeling more embarrassed every moment by her proximity to the wounded men.
" Thank you, that will help them, I am sure," Lizbeth said. She turned to a seaman who was in attendance and asked
