CHAPTER SEVEN

Rodney had asked Barlow to discover who among the men could swim. Barlow had looked surprised.
" Swim, Sir?"
The majority of seamen thought it was unlucky to learn to swim. If their ship was sunk, the sooner one went to the bottom the better. Swimming about only prolonged the agony. Rodney knew this and understood Barlow's surprise at the question.
" I want a boat's crew who can swim and swim well," he said, "and don't pick me anyone who will flounder about and expect to be rescued-do you understand?"
" Yes, Sir."
Barlow came back with the information that there were twelve men aboard who could swim. A boat had only eight oars and he had, therefore, chosen the eight men he thought best suited to the work ahead.
" Eight will do, Master Barlow," Rodney said. "I shall go with the boat. You will be in charge of the Sea Hawk."
" Can I not come with you, Sir?" Barlow asked eagerly.
Rodney shook his head.
" No. You will be in charge here and if we fail, your orders are to proceed to sea immediately. Do you understand?"
" Yes, Sir."
" Fetch Master Gadstone to me."
Gadstone was fetched. As he came into the cabin, he was almost dancing with excitement. He had been waiting for something like this ever since he left England.
" Now listen to me, Mister Gadstone," Rodney said. "What I am going to give you to do is an extremely difficult task because it demands waiting, patience, initiative, and being able to run away."
" Run away, Sir?"
" Yes, run away," Rodney said grimly. "Now listen to me attentively."
He spoke sharply, and purposely with a cold authority. He wanted to calm down Gadstone's excitement and exuberance to something more sensible. It was by no means an easy task. However, he looked calmer, Rodney thought, as he saw a little band of men set off up the cliffs-Gadstone and six others,
