The H.M.S. ILeopardI pulled into the bay of Pulo Batang looking more like a shabby merchant ship that a man-of-war. The crew had endured a calamitous voyage plagued by gaol-fever, pursued by the Dutch IWaakzaamheidI, and struck by an iceberg. Suffice it to say, Jack Aubrey was ready for home.P
The return journey aboard ILa FlecheI proves delightful for both Aubrey and his particular friend. Stephen Maturin, with high winds and beautiful skies. It is when ILa FlecheI nears the coast of Brazil that tragedy strikes. Accidental fire ravages the ship, forcing the crew into lifeboats. Rescued eventually by the IJavaI, Aubrey and Maturin meet with yet another deterrent to their journey home when the IJavaI engages the U.S.S. IConstitutionI in battle, and loses. Aubrey, now a POW in Boston, waits for word of a prisoner exchange, while Maturin renews his friendship with the raven-haired expatriate, Diana Villiers.
