CHAPTER SIX

reserved for the cargo of gold which they hoped to bring home with them; but some had been there and Rodney was wondering how he could possibly replace them. Actually he knew the answer to all his problems, but for the moment he dared not voice it even to himself.
It was only as the afternoon passed and evening came that he took the Cimaroons and the Indian aside to talk to them where no one could overhear. No one in the ship's company could speak English, but Rodney felt that caution was very necessary, especially now. Although the Spaniards were five miles away according to the Cimaroons, the men had been told to keep their voices low and make as little noise as possible, and not, under threat of dire punishment, to go beyond the bay itself.
They were prepared to obey for the moment, but Rodney knew full well that, when they were less tired and their work had advanced a little, the more adventurous of them would be up to mischief.
Here was yet another reason why there was no time to be lost. About an hour before dusk he gave Master Barlow special instructions and with a dark cloak over his shoulders and a dagger in his belt he came into the after cabin. Lizbeth, who was in there, gave him one glance and knew where he was going.

" I would still like to come," Lizbeth said, "but I understand." She hesitated for a moment and raised her eyes to say shyly: "I think I ought to apologize for what I said yesterday. You were right not to risk the lives of those you command. At the time I wanted to do battle with our enemies whatever the cost to ourselves."
Her voice was low and, with an unexpected flash of intuition, Rodney realized what it must have cost her to apologize to him. Sometimes she might seem an irresponsible child and at others a woman. It was the woman who must humiliate
