Storyline

The ship is becalmed and another vessel is sighted, which turns out to be British - the Alcyone, whose commander announces that the war with France is over. The two vessels anchor alongside and a ball is held for the passengers. Here Edmund meets the sweet Marion Chumley, though he has a rival for affections in Deverel. However, when the two ships part Deverel is exchanged for the Alcyone's officer, the urbane Benet and Edmund confides in Summers his regret at having to say goodbye to Marion. A storm blows up, during which the unfortunate steward Wheeler, considered a Jonah, is thrown overboard and Prettiman severely injured, being nursed rather unexpectedly by Miss Grnham. A mast is also broken and Benet and Summers disagree over the best way to mend it. Written by don @ minifie-1
