That is all right,' Mr. Sing said. 'You have a
boat?'
Thirty-eight feet/ I said. 'Hundred horse
Kermath.'
'Ah/ said Mr. Sing. 'I had imagined it was
something bigger.'
'It can carry two hundred and sixty-five cases
without being loaded/
'Would you care to charter it to me?'
'On what terms?'
'You need not go. I will provide a captain and a
crew.'
'No,' I said. T go on her wherever she goes.'
'I see,' said Mr. Sing. 'Would you mind leaving
us?' he said to Frankie. Frankie looked as interested
as ever and smiled at him.
'He's deaf,' I said. 'He doesn't understand much
English.'
'I see/ said Mr. Sing, 'You speak Spanish. Tell
him to rejoin us later/
I motioned to Frankie with my thumb. He got up
and went over to the bar.
Tou don't speak Spanish?* I said.
'Oh, yes,' said Mr. Sing. 'Now what ate the

money? Can she be libelled?'
