CHAPTER SIX

"Thank you, Master Gillingham. Please tell Master Barlow what has been said, and these other gentlemen as well." Rodney included the gaping Lieutenants in his gesture.
Lizbeth translated the conversation that had taken place between Rodney and the natives.
" A Spanish ship!" Master Gadstone exclaimed, his eyes alight with excitement. "We will capture her if it is the last thing we do."
" Which it may easily be," Barlow said crushingly. "My thanks, Master Gillingham," he added politely to Lizbeth, then hurried after Rodney.
" I want to come to grips with these damned Spaniards," Master Gadstone said to Lizbeth. "I have hated them ever since I was a boy when I heard of their treachery to John Hawkins at the battle of St. Juan de Ulua. I was very young at the time, but I resolved there and then that when I grew up I would make the Spaniards suffer for the cruelties they inflicted on their prisoners, for the agonies of those who died on the rack or who lay forgotten in the black prisons of Seville."
There was almost a fanatical light in the young man's eyes as he spoke. Lizbeth put her hand on his arm.
" I understand what you feel," she said, "and yet hatred, like cruelty, is a frightening thing."
Master Gadstone smiled at that.
" I will teach the Spaniards about both if I get near to them with a sword in my hand," he threatened, "and pray heaven, our Captain will give us the chance."
" I hope so, too," Lizbeth agreed.
The young lieutenant was silent for a moment, and then he added:
" I was angry with him for running away yesterday, and yet he was right-it was the only possible thing to do."
" Do you really think that?" Lizbeth asked, surprised.
" But of course. You can see what the Spaniard's guns could do to us. If we had tried to fight her, she would have pounded us into pulp before we could have got a shot home. And those luggers can do a lot of damage. Yes, the Captain was right, though I hated him for his decision at the moment it happened."
