"Fair night, sir," he said, still facing out to the expanse . of waters. "Fair it is," Naish said. "What might be yoiir name?" "Matthew Kitchen, sir. Harpooner." ' • The man was a Negro. He was squat, white-headed, and he needed no support to remain upright as the ship quivered and shook.

He could make out the weird jut of a broken arm, and faces that formed a fresco stamped back and forth across the deck with an obvious effort not to show interest while the log was heaved. The makings of bad blood were already there between Finnic and Bothwick. But that was another matter to be considered later, Naish told himself, jumping almost blindly of pitiful terror.
