" 'Tis best that the medicine should not be left with the men. They might be tempted to help themselves," she remarked. "There are many drugs there which I am sure are deadly poison."
Rodney said nothing until they reached the upper deck, and then, as he drew a deep breath of fresh air, he said:
" I must thank you for doing your best with the men, but there is no need for you to attend to them any more. I will appoint an Acting-Surgeon."
He was speaking to Lizbeth, but his eyes were looking around as he spoke. There was no sign of a ship, but the coast was in sight. They had reached it none too soon, Rodney thought. He had no intention of alarming anyone, but while he had been below watching Lizbeth bandaging the wounded men, he had heard sounds which were all too ominous to a man used to ships.
There was a sound of water beneath the lower deck, he could hear the lap and swirl of it, a burbling sound which was very unlike the usual wash of the bilge. He could hear, too, the monotonous clang of the pumps, but he knew how little they would achieve. It took a lot to sink a ship such as the Sea Hawk and yet it was by no means an impossibility, and there were still eight or ten miles ahead of them before they could reach the coast.
Lizbeth was speaking, but for a moment he could not concentrate on what she was saying.

" I have no idea," Rodney replied. "I shall have to make enquiries."
" If there is no-one, as I suspect," Lizbeth said, "then I shall continue to do what I can for the men. I am not afraid of blood, as some women are, and at least I shall be gentler with them than the man I found trying to move them about when I went below."
" I forbid it," Rodney retorted quickly.
