CHAPTER TEN

THE men were cheering, half ironically, as a pearling lugger was brought alongside the Santa Perpetua. There were six Spaniards in charge of it, and as they were brought aboard Lizbeth could see that they were the type she had imagined all Spaniards to be before she met Don Miguel.
Their faces were coarse and bestial, their deportment arrogant ; and that they were brutal was obvious when one looked at the natives they had commanded in the lugger. Every man had open wounds across his back where he had been struck with the many-thonged leather whips which the Spaniards used so cruelly on their slaves.
They were very different indeed from the natives whom Rodney had asked to volunteer for service on the English ships ; cowed and broken both in body and spirit, they did not seem to care what happened to them, and the fact that their ship had been captured seemed to leave them only apathetic.
Rodney called the Cimaroon to his side.
" Do you know these men?" he asked.
The Cimaroon nodded.
" They are not of my tribe," he said. "They come from further south."
" They will be of little use even if they consent to sail with us," Rodney said. "If I put them ashore, will they manage to get back to their own people?"
The Cimaroon shrugged.
" Those who survive will doubtless find their way home," he said.
" So be it!"
Rodney gave the order for the boats to take the captured slaves and put them ashore; but even this hardly seemed to rouse the Indians from their lethargy; and the Spaniards, watching what appeared to them the mercifulness of a madman, sneered openly. Their hard faces and bold eyes made Lizbeth shudder.
