Storyline

Captain Baines is marooned in revolution-torn Venezuela but gets permission to leave if he will take Colonel Flores, who is accompanying some art treasures to prevent the rebels seizing them. However Baines discovers that Flores is attempting to smuggle gold to America and has him arrested. Ada Mitchell, widow of the man to whom Frazer sold the 'Scotch Lass' tells James Onedin that she will give him the ship if he marries her but he refuses. He is about to propose to Caroline when he learns that Fogarty, sailing the 'Scotch Lass' home, is in severe difficulties so he rushes off to salvage the ship. When he returns Caroline turns down his proposal, feeling that any wife must come second to the shipping line. Written by don @ minifie-1
