Abstract:

"Lieutenant John Pearce is in London seeking protection for his friends, from a reluctant Admiralty. Sitting in the tavern where he and the Pelicans were first press ganged he considers his future. Lacking funds, an occupation if he leaves naval service, or the evidence of perjury he once had to bring to justice Captain Ralph Barclay, who pressed he and his companions into the Navy. After many trials, dodging press gangs and writs, Pearce's companions finally arrive in London just in time to join Pearce and to fetch a ship laden with contraband back from the French.
