A stirring story of the sea, full of adventure, and admirably written. Richard Grenvile, a midshipman in the slave squadron on the West African coast, is put in command of a captured slave ship, with a crew of fourteen men, and instructed to make for Sierra Leone. The ship is captured by a pirate, who scuttles her and leaves her to sink, crew and all. The crew, however, take to the boats, and there are ''strange happenings" before they succeed in rejoining their own ship. Afterwards Grenvile takes despatches to Port Royal, where the Admiral sets him to pursue and destroy a pirate vessel, an adventure that has unexpected developments There is a treasure cave, of course, to be explored, and there is a young lady, too, though she is kept well in the background. The story involves excitement enough to satisfy a very exacting taste.
