CHAPTER TEN

She remembered how Rodney had told her to poison herself rather than be captured by the Spaniards, and now she saw the reason for this suggestion. Death was infinitely preferable to being at the mercy of men such as these. She was even relieved as she heard Rodney give the order for them to be taken below and put in chains.
The contents of the lugger were brought aboard. There was a small amount of silver and a quantity of wine that was being taken to the Governor of a settlement farther north ; but these were unimportant beside the pearls which the lugger was conveying to Nombre de Dios to be ready for the sailing of the next gold fleet.

All were valuable ; but there were not, Rodney decided, any exceptionally fine specimens among them, until a further search of the lugger revealed a small tin box hidden beneath the boards of the cabin. There were only six pearls in the box, but they were enough to make Rodney exclaim in astonishment, for he knew that these indeed were treasure trove. Softly-pink as the morning sky, they shimmered iridescent in the sunlight, so delicate, so lovely in their texture that even the most inexperienced beholder must have some idea of their intrinsic value.
Rodney placed them in his own cabin for safety and giving orders that they would tow the lugger until they could find a convenient place to break her up, he signalled the Sea Hawk that he wished to talk with Barlow.

She could guess fairly accurately what they would discuss, for she knew, although Rodney had not said so openly, that he was considering returning home.
