Most Significant

“Early this morning, one crew took us for a Government boat, and treated us accordingly…we got a Roumanian flag which we now fly conspicuously. With every boat which we have overhauled since then this trick has succeeded. We have had every deference shown to us, and not once any objection to whatever we chose to ask or do.”

Once they started talking, the hunters’ foreign accents gave them away. However, by that time the crew probably also noticed that Godalming and Harker were well-armed. I wonder who did the talking? Harker, in German? Or did Arthur have some skill with languages? Perhaps they both studied up, in preparation for forcibly boarding the Czarina Catherine?
