CHAPTER FOUR - THE MAN WHO FELT QUEER

So the jolly boat must 'a come adrift, sir, when the ship went about.'
`What about Hales, then?' asked Hornblower.
" E was still in the boat, sir.'
Hornblower looked back up the estuary of the Gironde. Somewhere up there the jolly boat was drifting about, and lying in it was Hales, probably dead, possibly alive. In either case the French would find him, surely enough, but a cold wave of regret extinguished the warm feeling of triumph in Hornblower's bosom when he thought about Hales back there. If it had not been for Hales he would never have nerved himself (so at least he thought) to run out to the maintopsail yardarm; he would at this moment be ruined and branded as a coward instead of basking in the satisfaction of having capably done his duty.
Jackson saw the bleak look in his face.
`Don't you take on so, sir,' he said. `They won't 'old the loss of the jolly boat agin you, not the captain and Mr Eccles, they won't.'
`I wasn't thinking about the jolly boat,' said Hornblower. `I was thinking about Hales.'
`Oh, 'im?' said Jackson. `Don't you fret about 'im, sir. 'E wouldn't never 'ave made no seaman, not no 'ow.'

CHAPTER FIVE - THE MAN WHO SAW GOD

WINTER had come to the Bay of Biscay. With the passing of the Equinox the gales began to increase in violence, adding infinitely to the labours and dangers of the British Navy watching over the coast of France; easterly gales, bitter cold, which the storm-tossed ships had to endure as best they could, when the spray froze on the rigging and the labouring hulls
