CHAPTER TWELVE

As she had expected, her father and stepmother were sitting waiting for her in the Great Chamber.
" Your skin is freckled," Catherine remarked critically, as Lizbeth sat down beside them in front of the big log fire.
" I am ashamed of both my nose and my hands," she answered laughingly.
" We will prepare a lotion of cucumbers and calamine flowers to-morrow," Catherine promised. "You cannot go to Whitehall looking like a kitchen wench."
" I have spoken with Phillida, Father," Lizbeth said, "and I will take her place ; but I cannot leave before Rodney has returned. He will be here very shortly and I wish to see him again before I go to London."
" Have you not seen enough of him these past months?" Sir Harry asked cheerfully.
" It is not a matter of that," Lizbeth answered coolly, well aware that Catherine was looking at her suspiciously. "There were certain arrangements made during the voyage regarding some of the crew which he asked me to keep in mind. I had no chance to remind him of these before I left Plymouth, but I thought it of little consequence as I was certain to be seeing him here in a very short time. Now you tell me I am to go to London. I am ready to go; only after I have seen Rodney Hawkhurst."
" Very well, very well, I have already sent a message saying that Phillida is indisposed, and a few days more will not matter one way or another," Sir Harry conceded.
" And we shall need time to make Lizbeth some gowns," Catherine said.
" Gowns! That's all you women think about," Sir Harry roared. "But have it your own way. The day after Hawkhurst arrives Lizbeth can leave for Whitehall."
" Thank you, Father," Lizbeth said, "and now what else shall I tell you about the voyage? "
She had got her own way; Francis' memory was saved so long as she could speak to Rodney Hawkhurst before he saw the others; and yet to -be honest with herself, she knew that her relief and joy at having gained this concession from her father
