CHAPTER NINE

ON the quarter-deck Rodney was humming softly to himself as he walked to and fro. It was swelteringly hot and the ship was moving very slowly, for the breeze was almost indiscernible and most of the time the sails hung limp and empty, while the sea itself was so still that the water seemed to cling against the wooden sides of the Santa Perpetua.
The Sea Hawk about half a mile away was in the same plight. Rodney could see Barlow gazing agitatedly at his topsails. Barlow always worried unduly when there was a dead calm ; it seemed unnatural to him somehow, while a tempest left him unmoved and quite unperturbed as to what might be the result of it.
Rodney, on the other hand, rather enjoyed periods of calm seas and sunlit skies. There was nothing to do except wait until the wind blew again and at the moment it was a relief to be able to relax after the excitement and agitation of the last few days.
With two ships to worry about he found himself unable to sleep at night, rising half a dozen times to look for the lights of the Sea Hawk shining across the intervening water. He would not have admitted this weakness to anyone, but he felt that he could not bear to lose either of his ships after his triumphant success in capturing the Santa Perpetua.
Their position until they were well away from Nombre de Dios and the Panama Isthmus was extremely precarious. The Spaniards had a fleet of ships at Havana and nothing could be more likely than that two of them or maybe more might be sent in search of the Santa Perpetua.
Don Miguel, too, was a person of importance. Rodney had learned that his father was one of the greatest landowners on the Spanish Main and master of many of the ships which sailed for home laden with the treasures brought down to Panama from Peru and the gold mines. It was not to be expected that the only son of the Marquis de Suavez could be lost without
