2 Flint was cap'n; I was quartermaster, along of my timber leg.
3 The same broadside I lost my leg, old Pew lost his deadlights.
4 I had always my eye open for seafaring men, with one leg or two, and I remember this one puzzled me.
5 My foot struck something yielding--it was a sleeper's leg; and he turned and groaned, but without awaking.
6 One man, in a red night-cap, with his cutlass in his mouth, had even got upon the top and thrown a leg across.
7 But though I was so terrified by the idea of the seafaring man with one leg, I was far less afraid of the captain himself than anybody else who knew him.
8 Silver, agile as a monkey even without leg or crutch, was on the top of him next moment and had twice buried his knife up to the hilt in that defenceless body.
