``The Prince of the Power of the Air!'' said the Admiral. ``It may be, child! Paynimry against Christianity. We had a touch of the same quality once off Cuba. But is it, or is it not, Christian men shall win! And send me Bartholomew Fiesco. Such talk is injury. It bores men's courage worse than the _teredo_ a ship's bottom!''
