CHAPTER SIX

the three men were hauled aboard. One was an Indian-there was no doubt about that-the other two were darker-skinned with high cheek-bones, combined with thick lips and thick, fuzzy heads of hair. At the first glance Rodney was sure these were Cimaroons. Bitter enemies of the Spaniards, Cimaroons were negro slaves who had run away from the cruelty of their masters and mated with Indians of the woods.
So many had escaped during the Spanish rule that they had now grown into a people who lived in the forests around the Isthmus of Panama. They had their own king and were split into several tribes. But all were united by one controlling spirit-a common hatred of those who had oppressed them.
The three men were dragged across the deck. Their faces were sullen, their eyes smouldering with suppressed fires. Rodney spoke to them in Spanish. He asked them who they were and when the oldest man answered him surlily that he and his brother were Cimaroons he smiled.
" Release the prisoners," he ordered. "Let them stand free."
The seamen obeyed him wonderingly. As he went on to speak in Spanish to the men he had captured, they stared in even more astonishment. For as Rodney talked, a vast change came over the three fishermen. First they looked surprised, then their mouths were wreathed in smiles and finally they were down on their knees, touching their foreheads to the deck in servitude.
For the first time in her life Lizbeth was glad that her education had been so extensive. Her father had had her taught in much the same way as Queen Elizabeth had been instructed. At the age of ten she had been learning Italian, French, Latin and Greek, and when she was twelve a tutor in Spanish had been found for her. She alone aboard the Sea Hawk besides Rodney knew why the fishermen had changed their attitude so quickly when Rodney spoke to them. They thought that they had been captured by the Spanish!
When they found that the ship was English and that her Captain had sailed with their friend Sir Francis Drake, they were only too willing not only to reveal any information that might be of use to the English Captain, but to offer their help.
Quickly Rodney explained their need for a harbour. The
