"Aye, aye, sir," Blageen said affably. "Go fetch it, Ally." But th< boy was slow in corn- ling back and the men had begun *o file .down from on deck, their after-breakfast pumping and swabbing done. Naish became impatient "Serve them," b* told Blageen. "Just-keep a tally of what'f sold. I'H arrange the prices later." "Capt'in, sir," Blageen said, his elbows propped wide on the little waist-high shelf of the pantry half door. "You're under • bit of a misapprehension. When Capt'in Whiting left the ship, him and me made a dicker. I bought the slops outright from him: They don't belong to you, sir, or to the ship." "Serve the men," Naish said without emphasis. "When Ally comes back, have him call me. I shall be 'in my cabin." : He took out the crew's articles from among the rest of the ship's papers when he was in his cabin. Alfy, he suspected, wouldn't be Back for some time, .and these he should have read before. No more than eight of tht men who had signed the articles, the mates included, had been able to write J'-cir names. The rest had mide k\ Mr marks and beside the marks the Boston shipping commissioner had filled -in the signatures. That was common practice. But the sums for which the men hid wreed to work were iociddlblj smaH. Landsmen, and nobody among the fo'c'slt lot had been signed on above such a rating, received one 200th of the potential cargo. But th« price oJ oil 3ad already been established in the articles at 60 cents a gallon, pretty much hall of tht price in ;he current market. A charge- of 25 per cent of their share was also made for the cost of the medicine chest, the fitting out and discharging of the vessel A sweat at rage started on Naish's brow. His father and Phoebe's father would so will- iully take from the earnings of ignorant men who had been herded into a vessel whose name or ports at call and work and purpose they had no idea. He didn't like it In fact, he wasn't going to stand for it. He went to find Alf>. He went forward along 'Jie larboard passageway past the mates' cabins to the quarters that Bla- geen shared with Alfred. Alfred was in the top bank, his kneec pulled up under him, his face sd in an expression of profound sleep. He jerked Alfred by the ankle. "Give me the slops list," he said. 'The wot, sir?" "You heard me." He and the boy eyed each other thoughtfully for a moment, then Alfred leaped down from the bunk "Cruel sleepy, sir. Me uncle was talkin' me ear orf near throughout the night." Why is your uncle serving in a whaler?" ALFRED was in front of a bulkhead locker; he opened it and took from a strong box inside a stiff-backed notebook "Carn't no more than guest, rir But wot I 'eared around 'ome, he was in the Liverpool pickets for some years. Chased 'iw out Smugglln', it might ha' been Slippery is wot 'e i*. Takin' a4 vantage of a poor, innocent nipper like me." "You'll get along," Naish said. "But 'e told me to make like was sleepy, and 'e told me not o give yer this 'ere notebook." 'Get back in the bunk," Naisb said.. The slops prices as marked in he notebook listed monkey jackets at $10 apiece. Those sold at about $6 at the best of shore Jrices. Jackknives which in Boston or Salem went for 20 cents here cost 50. Tobacco was double, and so were all the other terns. Most of the men had drawn complete outfits. Naish sat at the ible until they had left. Then le motioned to Blageen. The steward's packet was a bit sweaty around the armpits, but it was us one sign of nervousness; he stood erect, his hands at his sides, jefore Naish. "I'm buying the slops chest," Naish said. "As you wiH, sir." "I will all right" Naish put the notebook on the table. "How much did you charge Captain Whiting for it originally when the ship outfitted?" "The total sum o' what's in the notebook you 'ave there, sir." • "Then we'll cut that figure in lalf. I've shipped in the fo'c'sle n my time. I've been forced to 'from sharpies like you. These lads shan't be stuck." "Ain't a thing I can say ag'inst your authority, sir." • • • "NO. And it you did, I might ask you if you sold the rum some of the afterguard lot were drinking last night after we were at sea." 'Dont believe none o| Alfv's lies, sir. I brung him away wif mu just because o' such. Me poor sister couldn't stand for 'is doings." Naish put the notebook on the table. He took the pen and ink pot from the rack. "Sign here," he said. "I'll pay vou in cash at the end of the voyage." •It ain't right, sir," Blageea said. Blageen signed with tears in hit eyes.
