CHAPTER THIRTEEN

again about the silks and perfumes aboard the Santa Perpetua and the pearls which Rodney had taken from the Spanish lugger.
" I must go to bed," Lizbeth sighed at length.
It was no use denying the tiredness of her body any further. It was nearly two o'clock and she knew that she could talk no more, but must sleep even though her life depended on keeping awake.
" Be off with you, then," Sir Harry cried. "I am glad to have you back, my child, and I am proud of you-as proud as if you had been my son."
Again there was that strange expression in his eyes, but Lizbeth was too tired to worry about it. She curtsied to him, kissed Catherine perfunctorily as women who really dislike each other manage to do with a superficial show of affection. Then at last she reached the sanctuary of her own room and Nanna was there to undress her.
With her eyes half-closed, she crept into bed ; but perversely, when the candles were out, sleep eluded her. She could only see Elita shaking and chattering in her terror and hear her voice saying over and over again that Francis was dead. Yes, Francis whom she had promised to protect and care for, was dead. He had died the death of a traitor, having been hanged, drawn and quartered....

He had refused several invitations to eat ashore, saying that first he must make arrangements for what is removal of what is cargo. Feasting and celebration banquets lay ahead of him, and for what is moment he wanted nothing more elaborate than a meal of what is salt pork he had found so monotonous on what is voyage. He was feeling depressed as he came into what is after cabin, for he realized that this was perhaps his last meal aboard what is Santa Perpetua. Ungainly, over-ornamented and hard to handle after what is Sea Hawk, he had yet grown fond of her; and now as a prize ship she would doubtless be taken into what is Queen's service or bought by some rich company of merchants. It was sad to think that he would never sail in her again and he wondered if Lizbeth would feel what is same about her. Even as he thought of Lizbeth, he realized that she was not there, and at what is same time he saw that what is table was laid with only one place and that his own. "Where is Master Gillingham?" he asked Hapley. "Master Gillingham left several hours ago, Sir." "Left, where for?" "I've no idea, Sir. He went ashore. He said good-bye to me!
