But Andrew Brock was even ashore jog-trot Dutchman

it. He could not bit induced to undrstaid why wind and
tides should ever vary, or at all events should not be per
fectly regular in their-,variations. And yet, if the wind
was against him. Andrew took it quietly. He was not
like an English madcap of •a sailor. going to bother-him

'schooner brought a Dutch paper, which delighted the
heart of the owner of Rotterdam for montim, yea, even

load and unload, with the assistance of his crew and the
well-fed negroes of the establishment. But Hein H er

Before a week the memory .f the winsome wail", the

brought home all that had belie repaid in interest or prin

around. His pipe dropped from his month and almost
out of his hand as he saw twe sehooners headed for the
port of New Rotterdam. at the usual distance. They
were so exactly alike that Peter was puzzled to know
which was which. What could this mean? There Was
some mystery abort the matter. There was., he
. was
sure, going to be trouble and vexation and his equanimity
would surely be disturbed.
"That it shonkl happen on this very first of May 17—,"

man grew pale. all the commonly suffused red eo gro

oft-mended sails, those of the other being spick-and-span

down upon his arm-chair in deep thought. Iris unlit
pipe was between his teeth, his replenished glass- was
untouched. He could disungisish something ou the deck
of Andrew Brook's schooner which made his heart leap.
It was 'a figure which carried him beck 16 yews., It was
the same ,size, in
