crew. There was no one else, he thought, capable of navigating such a large ship ; besides, he could anticipate how useful her great armament and heavy guns might be to them.
Already new, ambitious plans were forming in his mind, but for the moment the only thing which mattered was to get away with the least delay possible. The Indian boy and the Cimaroons who were to pilot them to the Darien coast came aboard. Rodney thanked the Indian for what he had achieved last night in making the capture of the Santa Perpetua possible and promised him as a reward for himself and his village a sum of pesos which made him gasp with excitement and gratitude.
Rodney had not so much money in his possession, but he was certain that there would be plenty of money both in gold and silver aboard the Santa Perpetua ; and he was not mistaken. When they reached a small, concealed harbour south of the Isthmus of Panama and had time to inspect the Spanish ship, they discovered four hundred thousand pieces of gold, fifteen chests of coined silver, thirty tons of silver in bars, two hundred pounds of raw gold, apart from a cargo of amber and ambergris, ivory, musk, wines, Chinese silks, perfumes, laces, rare preserved fruits, fine porcelain and many other valuable and beautiful things.
A proportion of this they transferred to the Sea Hawk to divide the risk, and the men were wild with excitement at the thought of the share of the prize they would receive when they returned home and the ship's cargo was sold and divided.
With two ships to handle they were, of course, shorthanded. Rodney sent the Cimaroons ashore to search for volunteers. He was bitterly opposed to Barlow's suggestion that they should, as was usual, kidnap a number of the natives and make them their slaves. It was the custom amongst ships of all nations, but Rodney had an ingrained dislike of slaves, and though his officers thought he was crazy, he stuck firmly to his idea that he wished the men to volunteer and he would employ them and pay for their services.
Apart from this course of action being quixotic and extraordinary, Master Barlow as well as the other officers thought it unlikely that the Cimaroon would obtain a single volunteer
