    Summary

    The cat is more slender than scrawny, and while he has a few scars, he’s well-groomed. There’s no collar, but when Tenzing mentions to the man working the front desk at his motel that he’s found a cat, he immediately gets a positive ID, so it’s a moot point regardless.

    “Little slip of a tortie, missing one eye?” the man asks, grinning a little. When Tenzing nods, slowly raising one eyebrow, he’s met with a shrug and, “Take him up to the lighthouse, or else let him go and he’ll find his own way back eventually. He belongs to the Captain.”

    Or, William Laurence has a lighthouse and a cat with a bad habit of running away; Tenzing Tharkay never meant to stick around, but he seems to have forgotten to leave.

    Summary

    Granby thinks he could have shot Barham and Admiral Lenton would have defended his decision, however unsuccessfully. He half-wishes he’d done it, except that Laurence would have fussed something horrible and probably taken responsibility for that too.

    Summary

    Laurence and Tharkay, holed up together in the midst of a cold, snowy winter, pass the time by reading old letters. But there's more contained in those papers than either of them bargained for...

    Summary

    If Laurence still felt somewhat guilty of the nearly opulent state of his travelling quarters, he had learned to reason to himself that to make use of it was the better alternative, given that he could not refuse the excessive hospitality anyway, and Tharkay had learned to restrain himself to teasing Laurence about it only occasionally.
