I'm sure you've been wondering why I sent a captain such as you on the Matthew Town run. The truth is that I was testing you. After our recent difficulties with the French, it became clear to me that we had a traitor in our ranks. I must figure out who it is before we can move ahead. I'm telling you all this because you passed the test, and this pleases me greatly. It would have been a blow to discover that you were the traitor.
Now I need your help in flushing out the true blackguard. I want you to go to Captain Jonah Pauling and ask to speak with him alone in his ship's cabin. Then offer him 500 pieces of eight to betray me. If he accepts the offer, we'll know he can be bought. I realize the two of you have sailed together before but I must find out who is selling information about the Brethren of the Coast.
Good. This is unpleasant but necessary work.
