CHAPTER ELEVEN

anchored in the harbour and looking strangely out of place among the smaller and more severe British ships. And every seaman on board her and the Sea Hawk seemed to have not one tongue but two as they talked of the spoils of the voyage and the richness of the promised prize money.
" Here come th' carrion crows," one man laughed as the women of Plymouth seemed to turn out as it were in one body -wife and mistress, maiden and prostitute-pushing and fighting with each other in their efforts to get near to the

Rodney had meant, Lizbeth knew, to make arrangements for her return. He had planned to find horses and servants to escort her on the long journey from Plymouth to Camfield. She felt she would rather make these arrangements herself than trouble him, so she went to the inn where she and Francis had stayed the night before she went aboard the Sea Hawk. The
