Kate tee Romance of a pirate s daughter by Frank r. Stockton 2, by d. Appleton co., new York chapter xxx. The letter was a Long one and told things. The first part of it Kate read to herself and kept to herself Tor in burning words it assured her that he moved her and would always love her and that no misfortune of her Cwa nor wrongdoings of others Toulkt prevent him from offering her his most ardent and unchangeable affection. Moreover he begged and implored her to accept that affection 10 accept it now that it might belong to tier forever. Happiness he said opening before her he implored her to allow him to share that happiness with her. The rest of tha letter was read most jubilantly aloud. It told of news which had come to Newcombe from Honduras news wonderful news which would the heart slag. Maj. Bonnet was Belize. He had Given up All connection with piracy and was now engaged in mercantile pursuits. This was positively True for the person who had sent the news to Bridgetown Rupf in not Nyrl till a i to him and had been informed by him that he had Given up his ship and was now an accountant and commission agent doing business at that place. The sender of this great news also stated that Ben Greenway was with Izaj. Bonnet working As his assistant Here Dame charter sat open mouthed and her heart nearly stopped Hickory charter had also been in the port and had gone but was expected Ere Long to return. Kate stood on her tip toes and saved the letter Over her head. To Belize my dear Uncle to Belize if we cannot get there any other Way must go in a boat with oars. Is must Fly we must not Ali a opportunities for figurative Fly ing b Ere not wanting. There were no Tesse 3 in the port which might be engaged for an indeterminate voyage but there was a goodly Sloop about to sail in ballast for Belize. Before Sun set three passages were engaged upon this Sloop. It was a Bright morning when with it fair wind upon her starboard Bow the Sloop Belinda bearing the jubilant three sailed southward on her coins the coast of Honduras and it was Ripon that same morning that the Good ship revenge bearing the pirate Blackbeard and Bis handsomely uni formed lieutenant sailed northward the same fair wind upon her port Bow. Incited perhaps by the Possession i of a Fine ship Manatad by a Crew from Liis old vessel and from the men who had formed the Crew of the revenge Bla Job Earth was in better spirits than was his wont and so far As his nature would allow he treated Hickory with fair Good humor. Bui no matter what happened his Inre strained imagination never failed him. Having Iha fancy to see Dick Ory always in fall uniform he allowed him to assume no other clothes he was always in naval full dress and Coc red hat and his duties were those of a the Only shrewd thing i Ever knew your sir Nightcap to he said was to Tell me you could not read nor write. He spoke so glibly that i believed him. Had it not. Been so i should have sect you to the town. To help with the Shore end of my affairs and then you would have been there still and i should have had no Admiral to write my log and straighten my sometimes in his quieter moods when there was no provocation to Send pistol balls Between two sailors quietly conversing or to perform some other Demoniac trick blackboard would talk to Dio Kory and ask All manner of questions some of which the Young Man answered while some he tried not to answer. Thus it was that the pirate found out a great Deal More about Dickov s life Hope and. Sorrows than the Young fellow imag iced that he Mayo known. To Dikeov j cred that Hickory was greatly interested in Bonnet s daughter and wished above All other things in this world this was a Little out of the com Mon run of things among the brother Hood it was their fashion to forget so far As they were Able the family i ties which already belonged to them and to make no plans for any Fuluio ties of that sort which they might be Able to make. Such a thing amused the generally rampant Blackbeard but if this Hickory boy whom they had on Board really did wish to marry some one the idea came into the Crafty mind of Blackbeard that lie would like to attend to that marrying himself. It pleased him to hate i Finger in every pie and now Here was a pie in the fingering of which to might take a novel interest. This renowned desperado this bloody cutthroat this merciless pirate possessed a quiet Little eng Lish Home on tha Cornwall coast where the cheerful Woods and Fields stretched Down almost in reach of the sullen sea. Here dwelt his wife quiet mistress thatch and Here his Brawny daughter. Seldom a word came to this Rural Home from the father burning and robbing sinking and slaying out upon the Western seas. But from the stores of self which so often slipped so easily into his great arms and which so often slipped just As easily out of them came now and then some thing to help the brawn grow upon his j else been talking u him in this Strain j he would have shouted with but people did not laugh at Black Beard. Nyhen the pirate had said All and was gazing triumphantly at poor Dick Ory the Young Man gasped a word in answer he could not accept this awful Fate As much As a wave of the hand in protest. But said he blackboard s face grew Black he Bent his head and lowered upon the Pale Hickory then with a tremendous blow he brought Down his fist upon if Eliza will not have he roared if that girl will not tale you when i offer you to her if she or her Mother As much As winks an eyelash in disobedience of my commands i will take them by the hair of their Heads and i will throw them into the sea. If she will not have he repeated roaring As if he were shout ing through a speaking trumpet in a storm if i thought that youngster i would Burn the House with both of them in it and the rum i had bought to make a Jolly wedding should be poured on the timbers to them Blaze. Let no notions like that enter your mind my boy. If she disobeys me i will Cook her Aad you shall eat her. Disobey and he swore at a rate that he panted for fresh air and mounted to the deck. It was not a time for Hickory to make remarks indicating his disapproval of the proposed arrangement chapter xxx. A projected marriage. As it Mai appear Hickory charter was not a very unhappy Young fellow As he stood in his Fine uniform on the Quarter deck of the re Venge the fresh Breeze ruffling ul3 Brown curls when he lifted his heavy cocked hat True he was leaving behind him Bis friends capt Bonnet and Ben Greenway Voith whom the wayward Blackbeard would allow no word of leave taking True he was going he knew not where and in the Power of a Man noted the new world Over for his Savage eccentricities and True toe might soon be sailing hour by four farther and farther away from the Island on which dwelt the Angel Angel hate and Hia Moth. But none of these considerations Down the glad feeling that be was going that he was moving. Moreover in answer to one of his in Passione appeals to be set ashore at Jamaica Blackbeard had said to him that if he should get tired of him he did not see at that moment any Rea Bon Why he should not put him on Board some convenient vessel and Kave him landed at Kingston. Hickory did not believe very much u the Black bearded pirate with his tricks and inhuman High spirits feat Jamaica Lay to Catt Aad he Metward. Bars of his wife. Eliza thatch bore no resemblance to a Houri her hair was red face was freckled she had enough Teeth left to do Good eating with when she had a Chance and her step Shook the timbers of her Little Home. Her father had heard from her a Little while ago by a letter she had had conveyed to Belize. His parental feelings notwithstanding he had told Bonnet he knew no such sentiments were stirred. When he had finished her letter he would have been Well pleased to Burn a vessel and make a dozen passengers walk the Plank As a memorial to his girl. But this not being convenient it had come to him that he would marry the wench to the gayly bedecked Young fellow he had captured and it filled his reckless heart with a wild Delight he Drew his Cutlass and with a great oath he drove the heavy Blade into the top of the table and he swore by this Mark that his grand plan should be carried out. Lie would sail Over to England this would be a Happy Chance for his ves Sel was Unladen and ready for any Ati . Be would drop Anchor in the quiet Cove he knew of he would go ashore by night he would be at Home again. To be at Home again made him shout with profane laughter the Little Home he remembered would be so ridiculous to him now. He would see again his poor Little trem bling must be Gray by now he was sure that she would tremble More than Ever she did when she Hoard the great sea oaths which he was accustomed to pour Forth now. And his daughter sue must of a strap Ping wench by this time he was sure she could stand a slap on the Back which would kill her Mother. Yes there should be a wedding a Fine wedding and Good old rum should water the Earth. And he would de Tail a boat s Crew of Jolly Good Fel lows from the revenge to help make things uproarious. This charter boy and Eliza should have a House of their own with plenty of had More funds in hand than Ever in his life his respectable son in Law should go to London and Deposit his Fortune in a Bank. It would be Royal fun to think of Ani Eliza highly respectable and with Money in the tajik. A quart of tis beet Raa could scarcely have Mida Blackbeard More hilarious than did this glorious notion. Is ask org his he singed beards he shacked with capstan bars he men Down Hatchway he a in lordly spirits and his Crew exp died some great adventure some startling piece of Devil try. 07 course he did not keep his great design from was too Glori Ous too transcendent. He took his Young Admiral into his Cabin and Laid before him his dazzling future. Hickory sat speechless almost breathless. As be listened a Benld Tat he melt Lura Tjho. Had utom chapter xxi. Belize. Here were captains of cot Many merchant men in. The Early part of the eighteenth Century who cared to sail into the Gulf of Honduras that body of water being such a favorite resort pirates. But no such fears troubled the mind of the skipper at the Brig Belinda which was now making the Best of her Way towards the port of Belize. She was a sturdy vessel and carried no prejudices. Sometimes she was Laden with goods bought from the pirates and destined to be sold to Hon est people and again she carried commodities purchased from those who were their Legal owners and in tended for the use of the bold rascals who sailed under the Jolly Roger. Then As now it was impossible for thieves to steal All the commodities they desired some things must b-2 bought. Thus serving the pirates As Well As honest traders Sloop be Linda feared not to sail the Gulf of Honduras or to cast Anchor by tha town of Belize. As the Good snip approached her port Kate Bonnet kept steadfastly on Deriv during most of the Daylight her eyes searching the surface of the water for something which looked like Uei Luiei a oily ulc Ive Tugo. Irue or. Newcombe had written her that maj. Bonnet had Given up piracy and j was now engaged in commercial Busi Ness in the town but still if Sho should see the revenge the sight would be of absorbing interest to her. She was k girl of Quick observation and Good memory but the town Camo in View and she had seen no vessel which reminded her of the revenge. As soon As the Anchor was dropped Kate wished to go ashore but he Uncle would not hear of that. He must know something definite before he trusted Kate or himself in such a Lawless town As Belize. The Captain who was going ashore could make in quiries and Kate must wait. In a Little room at the bade of a Large Low storehouse not far from the pier sat stede Bonnet and his Faith Ful Friend and Servitor Ben Greenway. The storehouse was crowded with goods of almost every imaginable description and even the room Back of it contained an overflow of Bales boxes and barrels. At a Small tabla near a window sat the Scotchman and Bonnet the latter Reading some roughly written lists descriptions and quantities of goods the value of each item being estimated by the canny scotch Man who set Down the figures upon another list presently Bonnet put Down his papers and heaved a heavy sigh which sigh seemed to Harmon ize very Well with his general appear Ance. He carried no longer upon him the countenance of the bold officer who in uniform and flowing Feather trod the Quarter deck of the revenge but bore the expression a Man who knew adversity yet was not Able to Humble himself under it. He was Bent and borne Down although not yet broken. Had he been broken he could better have accommodated himself to his present Case. His clothes were those of the common class of civilian and there was that about him which indicated that he cared no More for neatness or Good looks. Ben he said this is too much now have i reached the depth in my sorrow at which All my strength leaves me. I cannot read these the Scotchman looked up. Is there no Light he asked. Said Bontoft there is no a Clit anywhere All 13 Murcia ass and gloom.

He told me that he was going to be married next month. Was t that perfectly scandalous Why it was perfectly outrageous. Just think of his acting in that Way when he was engaged.
