In n. T. Independent. Paet l chapter this Appeal seemed to produce some effect for Tovo of the Fellows began to look Here and there among the lumber but half heatedly i thought Aud with half an eve to their own danger All the time while the rest stood irresolute on the Road. You have your hands on thousands you fools and you hang a leg you d be As Rich Kings if you could find it and you know it s Here and you stand malingering. There was t one of you dared face Bill and i did it a Isolind Man and i m to lose toy Chance you i a to be a poor crawling beggar sponging for rum when i might be rolling in a coach if you had the Pluck of a Tver in in a biscuit you would catch them hang it Pew be got the Doub grumbled one. They might have hid the blessed said another. Take the Georges per and Don t stand Here squalling was the word for it. Pew s anger Rose so High at these objections till at last his passion completely Tak ing the upper hand he struck at them right and left in his blindness and his sounded heavily on More than map. These in their turn cursed Back at the Blind miscreant threatened him in horrid terms and tried in vain to catch stick and arrest it from his grasp. This quarrel was the saving of us for while it was still in gig another sound came from the top of the Hill on the Side of the Hamlet the tramp of horses galloping almost at the same time a. Pistol shot Flash and re port a Arae from the hedge Side. And that was plainly the last signal of danger for the buccaneers turned at once and ran. Separating in every direction one Seaward along the Cove one slant across the Hill and so on so that in half a minute not a sign of them remained but Pew. Him they had deserted whether in sheer panic or out of revenge for his ill words and blows 1 know cot but there he remained be ii Iod tapping up and Down the Road in a frenzy and groping and calling for his comrades. Tinally he took the wrong turn and ran a few Steps past me toward the Hamlet crying Johnny Black dog and other names you won t leave old Pew not old just then the noise of horses topped Rise and four or five riders came in sight in the Moonlight and swept at full Gallop Down the slope. At this Pew saw his error turned a scream and ran straight for the ditch into which he rolled. Dut he on his feet again in a second and made another dash utterly bewildered right under the nearest of the coming horses. The rider tried to save him but in vain. Down went Pew with a cry that Xang High into the night and the four .liooj.3 Xirui Picu Spur Jcu passed by. He fell on his Side then gently collapsed upon his face and moved no More. I leaped to my feet and hailed the riders. They were pulling up at any rate horrified at the Accident and i soon saw what they were. One Tail ing out Foehand the rest was a lad that had gone from the Hamlet to or. Bivs toe rest were Revenue of ricers he had met by the Way and with he had had the intelligence to re turn at once. Some news of the Lugger in Jett s Hole had found Way to supervisor dance and sent him Forth that night in our direction and to that circumstance my Mother and i owe our preservation from death. Pew was dead Stone dead. As for Jim Mother when we had carried her up to the Hamlet a Little cold in tar and salts very soon brought her Back again and she was none the worse for tour terror though she Stii continued to deplore the balance of the Money. In the meantime the supervisor Rode on As fast is he could to kill s role but his had to dismount and Grope Down the Dingle leading and some times supporting their horses and in cont wiil fear of ambushes so it was to great matter for Surprise that when we got Down to the Lole the Lugger was already Way though Delosr. If. Riff hailed her. A voice re plied telling him to keep out of the Moonlight or he would get some Lead in him and at the same time a Bullet whistled close by his Arm. Soon after the Lugger doubled the Point and Dis appeared. Or. Dance stood there As he said like a fish out of and All Liu could do was to dispatch a Man to a to warn the Cutter. And said he is just about As Good As nothing. They be got Oil clean and there s an end. He added i m Clad i trod on master Pew s for by this time he had heard my Story. I went Back with him to the Admiral Benbow you cannot imagine a House in such a state of Smusin Iii very clock had been thrown Down these Fellows in their furious Hunt after my Mother and myself and though nothing had actually been taken away except the Captain s Money bag and a Little Silver from the till i could see at once that we were ruined. 3ir. Would make nothing of the scene. They got the Money say Well then Hawkins what in Fortune were they after More Money i sup sir not Money i replied i. In fact sir i believe i have the thing in my breast pocket and to Tell you the truth i should like to get it put in to be. Sure boy quite said he. Ill take it. If you i thought perhaps or. I began. Perfectly he interrupted very cheerily perfectly gentleman and a magistrate. And now i come to think of it i might As Well ride round there myself and report to him or Squire. Master Pew s dead when All s done not that i regret it but he s dead Yon see and people will make it oui an officer of his majesty s Revenue if make it out they can. Now i la Tell you Hawkins if you like i la take you i thanked him heartily for the of Fer and we waited Back to the Hanlet where the horses Ware. By the time i Hud told Mother of nay purpose they were All in the Saddle. Said or. Dance you have p. Good horse take up this lad behind As soon As i was mounted holding on to Dogger s Belt the supervisor gave the word and the party struck out at a bouncing Trot on the Road to or. Livesey s House chapter i. The Captain s papers. We Rode hard All the Way till we Drew up before or. Livesey s door. The House was All dark in front. Or. Dance told me to jump Down and Knock and Dogger gave me a Stirrup to descend by. The door was opened almost at once by the maid. Is or. Livesey i asked. No she Suid afternoon but had gone up to the Hall to Dine and pass the evening with the Squire. So there we go. Eaid or. This time As the distance was Short i did not mount but ran with Dogger s Stirrup leather to the Lodge Gates and up tie Long leafless Moonlit ave Niue to where the White line of the Hall build Ings looked on either hand on great old gardens. Here or. Dance dismounted and talking me along with him was admitted at a word into the House. The servant led us Down a matted passage Anil showed us at the end into a Grant Library All lined with Book cases and busts upon the top of them where the Squire and or. Livesy sat pipe in hand on either Side of the Bright fire. I had never seen the Squire so at hand. He was a tall can Over Sis feet High Broad in proportion and he had a Bluff rough and ready face All roughened and reddened and lined 5n his Long travels. His eyebrows were Verj Black and moved readily and this gave him a look of some temper not bad you would say but Quick and High. Come in or. Says he very stately and condescending. Good evening says tie Doc Tor with s. Nod. And Good evening to you Friend Jim. What Good wind brings you the supervisor stood up straight and stiff and told his Story like a lesson you should have seen How the two gentlemen leaned Forward and looked at each other and forgot to smoke id their Surprise and interest. When they heard How my Mother went Back to the inn. Or. Livesey fairly slapped his thigh and the Squire cried broke his Long pipe against the grate. Before it was done or. That you will remember was the Squire s name had got up from his seat and striding about the room and the doctor is if to hear the better had taken off his powdered wig. And it there looking very strange indeed with his own close cropped by Csc at last or. Dance finished the Story. Or. said the Squire you Are a very Nob a fellow. As for rid ing Down that Black atrocious miscreant i regard it is an net of virtue sir like stamping on a cockroach. This lad Hawkins is a Trump. I perceive. Hawkins will you ring that Bell or. Dance must have some and so said the doctor Yoy have the thing that they were after have Here it is. Said i and gave him the of skis the doctor locked it All Over As if his fingers were itching to open it but in Stead of doing that he put it quietly in the pocket of his coat. Said he. When dance has had his ale he must of course be off on Lis majesty s service but i Roean to keep Jim Hawkins Here to sleep at my House and. With your permission i propose we should have up the cold pie and let him a you the Squire Hawkins earned better than so big Pigeon pie we brought in and put on a Side table and i made a Hearty supper for i was As hungry at a Hawk while or. Dance was further complimented Ace at last dismissed. And now said the doctor. Aud now said the Squire in the same breath. One at a time one at a laughed or. Livesey. You have heard of this Flint i heard of cried the Squire. Heard of him you say he was the blood thirties Buccaneer that sailed. Blackboard was a child to Flint. The spaniards were so prodigiously afraid of Tuul a Itil Oil Tjit i times proud he was an englishman. I be seen his to sails with these eyes off Trinidad and the cowardly son of a rum Puncheon that i sailed with put. Back sir into port of Well i be heard of him Luy self in said the doctor. But the Point is had he cried the Squire. Have you heard the Story what were these villains after but Money what do they care for but Money for what they risk their Rascal carcasses but that we shall soon replied the doctor. But you Are so confound edly hot headed and exe amatory that i cannot get a word in. What i want to know is this supposing that i have Here in my pocket some Clew to where Flint buried his treasure will that treasure amount to amount cried the Squire. It will amount to this if we have the Clew you talk about i fit out a ship in Bristol Dock and take you and Hawkins Here along unit i ii have i Iuri. Twi Tiburc in i search a very said the doctor. Now then if Jim is , Well open the and he Laid it before him on the table. The bundle Wes sewn together and the doctor had to get out his instrument Case and Cut the stitches with his medical scissors. It contained two Book and a sealed paper. First of nil Well try the observed the doctor. The Squire and i were both peering Over his shoulder As he opened it for or. Locsey had kindly motion of me to come round from the Side table where i had been eating to enjoy the sport of the . On the first Page there were Only some scraps of writing such As a Man with a pen in his hand might make for idleness or practice. One was the same As the Tattoo Mark Billy Bones his and then there was or. W. Bones no More off Palm key he got and some Oiler snatches mostly single words and unintelligible. I could not help wondering who it was that had got and what itt was that he got a knife in his Back As like As Tiok not much instruction said or. Lives Yas he passed on. The next ten or twelve pages were filled with a curious series of entries. There was a Date at one end of the line and at the other a sum of Money As in common account books but instead of explanatory writing Only a varying number of crosses Between the two. On the 12th of june 1745, for instance a sum of had plainly become due to some one and there was nothing tit Sis crosses to explain the cause. In a few cases to be sure the name of a place would be added As Offe Carac or a Mere entry of latitude and Longitude As "g2 degrees 37 minutes 20 seconds 1 j degrees 8 minutes 40 Sec the record lasted Over nearly 20 year the amount of the separate entries growing larger is time went on and at the end a grand total had been made out after five or six wrong additions and these words appended Bones his i can t make head or Tail of said or. Livesey. The thing is Clear As cried the Squire. This is the Black hearted Houm s account Book. Icse crosses stand for the names of the ships or towns that they have sink or plundered. The sums Are the scoundrel s share and where he feared an ambiguity to u see he added something clearer. Off now you see Here was some unhappy vessel boarded off that coast.
