CHAPTER SEVEN

"Very fiery and very potent. It is made from the fermented sap of a palm tree which has leaves nearly twenty feet long, and big, golden flowers three feet high. The wine is called Vino de Coyol. The Spaniards got hold of some of it, but the natives have kept most of their store hidden from them. Our Indian boy brought his father, the Chief, to see me. I gave him all the money I had with me to be spent on this feast and I think the Spaniards will be surprised to see how lavish it can be."
" And while they feast ...?" Lizbeth queried excitedly.
Rodney nodded.
" That is the point. While they are feasting we must strike!" He drummed on the table with his fingers, a habit he had when he was concentrating. "I want to avoid as much fighting as possible ; I cannot afford to lose a single man, especially if we have two ships to put to sea."
" Do not be afraid," Lizbeth said softly. "The galleon will be yours, I am sure of it."
He smiled at her then.
" You told me once before I should be successful," he said, "and yet yesterday you taunted me with being a coward."
" I am ashamed of my words," Lizbeth answered. "I did not understand. I wanted to fight the Spaniards, to fight and win." She hesitated for a moment and then added in a low voice: "I had not seen then the wounds that guns can inflict on human flesh. The man with the shattered foot had it amputated last night. I did not know that men could suffer so much and live."
Impulsively Rodney put out his hand and laid it over hers.
" I have commanded you before, leave the wounded to those who are used to such matters."
" And I have told you that I will not obey you in this," Lizbeth replied. "Who else on board has any knowledge of medicine or the treatment of wounds?"
Rodney did not answer the question and Lizbeth continued triumphantly.
" You see, you cannot tell me, so I must do my best. Do you know that the man into whose wound I poured the aqua vitae is without fever ?"
