The Dealings of Captain Sharkey
The Dealings of Captain Sharkey is written by Arthur Conan Doyle. A private venture might be fitted out--and there were many who had a blood-feud with Sharkey--but what could a private venture do? The pirates were numerous and desperate. As to taking Sharkey and his four companions, that, of course, would be easy if they could get at them; but how were they to get at them on a large well-wooded island like La Vache.
