McBean tries to hire a crew for the trilas of his newly built Highlands Pride. He needs a petty officer (pilot) and 6 able hands (signalsman, 2 topmen, 2 engineers and a deckhand), so it would cost him 15/6 a day.

He plans for 2 weeks trials (so costing him 10 17/-). He himselfs pilots it when conditions are good (with the pilot's supervision, as he knows he has a lot to learn in this).

After making the trials, he writes a letter to Major Fellows sugesting to show him the ship before the appointment, just to see if it would be adequate and if some improvements must be done.

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.
