He fumbled with the beginnings of a plan. Barsclou had reached a conclusion. "Maybe." he said. "It's possible Angliti didn'l tell you every- Lhinfi he knew. Or maybe you're lying. It won't cost me anything to refresh your memory." He linked heavy tankers before him on the table and Leaned toward the young couple. "The story of the Queen is quite a story, Mrs. Conover L: you've read any California history at all, you should know it." Sin shook her head several time in denial. John Henry kept silent prodding his brain. He had some thing to bargain with—the all important pencil—but how to us it? "In the year 1744, a Spanis galleon left Manila, headed Eo Mexico. This ship was loaded wit valuables—jewels, silks, gold an other precious metals. She wa named 'La Reina'—the Queen. : "Okay," said John Henry agains his wife's soft exclamation. "Wha does—" "The Queen was commanded by a SpantsLi officer named Arvaez y Moncada. She carried a mighty rich cargo. To give you an idea. WELL., the Reina sailed north killing time. According to le -old Spanish chnrts, she hac cached the head of the Gulf. But far aa Arvaez could see to the orlh was a great Inland sea. "He decided to explore this new sea. So the Reina kept going north Alter several days, Arvaez diseov red the sea was gelling.shallower So he turned back to the south. John Henry said. "What has a his got to do with us. anyway' "Don't rush me. Conover. Yo wanted to know details. The Rein headed south. Then Arvaez got th shock of his life. The way w; slocked.

I "I don't understand." Sin laid | slowly, Ilarselou turned his shadowed I eye-sockets on her again. "Here's whal had happened. There 1 d been heavy rains and this made the Colorado River overflow its banks. The overflow flooded this desert country, most of which is below sea level, anyway. The Queen sailed in when the flood was at its height. Then when the waters receded, she was Left high and dry." He surveyed Ihe Conovers' ex- pressions of Incredulity "Tt's not onl.v possible—it's fncl The same thing—the floods. I mean—hnj happened three times since lhat we have proof of.
