- Yesterday when you sent me with the captain to Harbour Island, you told me to restrain him if he tried to go too far. [ I did.] Singleton wasn’t a thief. Flint baited him into that fight, then he killed him. That’s not going too far?
They say the worst of it don’t last long. What the water does to you once it’s got you. It makes you cold, makes you scared. It shows you things, bad things. But then it warms you. It settles you. It shows you the places you’ve been. The people you’ve loved. They’re all there waiting for you. It doesn’t sound so bad.
I had such hopes for this place when I heard the Guthries had gone. That it had a chance to return to what it once was, return to that state. But now, I see there’s no hope of that anymore. You have taken away the one thing that made Nassau what it was. You have given her prosperity. Strife is good.
