"Rather more than that," said Mark Nelson, not caring to gratify the curiosity of his creditor. "I think you had better keep your money, and leave Whiteface with me," said Squire Hudson, after a pause. "I would rather not, squire.

Well, then I reasoned that if any smuggler was to land it could only be with the concurrence of our captain, and I suspected that the captain would make no objection to such an arrangement for he himself was, like the rest of us, a creditor of the government.

One creditor after another appeared and demanded his money. And then the whole house of cards collapsed. The first who spoke of a suit at law blew the concern into the air.
