CHAPTER SIX

three natives looked at each other ; then the oldest, the Cimaroon who had spoken first, began a long reply. Immediately ahead of them, he said, was the coast of Nicaragua. Rodney started at that, because he had been expecting to reach land south of Panama. The night wind had blown them further than he had anticipated.
He and his brother, the Cimaroon went on, were visiting an Indian settlement ; but a week ago one of the gold ships from Panama, en route for Havana, had been forced to seek shelter in their harbour while a split rudder was repaired. The Spaniards had forced into slavery those of the Indians whom they had not killed, they had seduced the young women, and, rather than eat the provisions with which the ship was stocked for the journey back to Spain, they had ravaged the whole countryside in search of food.
The chief of the tribe was afraid that, although the ship was nearly ready for sea, the Spaniards were in no hurry to leave because some of them thought they had missed the treasure fleet which was sailing from Havana with a powerful escort of warships, and fever had also broken out among the galley slaves.
Fearful for their lives, the Cimaroons had escaped from the settlement and taken with them for safety the Chief's son.
" If the Spaniards are there, we cannot land," Rodney said in despair.
The Indian declared to the contrary. He knew of a smaller inlet not far from his own settlement where the Sea Hawk would be quite safe. The Englishmen could repair their ship in secret and the Spaniards need know nothing of their arrival. The real danger, however, the Indian warned them, was from the guarda costas, but many of these had gone to Havana to escort the other ships filled with gold which had been loaded at Nombre de Dios:
The Spanish ship in their harbour was the last of the gold ships to leave Nombre de Dios, and in response to a quick question from Rodney, the Indian added that no guarda costa had returned to look for her and the Spanish officers had commented bitterly upon this, as they thought they should have been missed by now.
