Wow! Clever Little Nelson, making Lieutenant by the time he was nineteen! And on merit alone. Maybe if I get my arse in gear, I could do the same? What a hero. Off back to the West Indies again as well? Just shows what a good officer he is, protecting the poor plantation owners so selflessly. No wonder he made Captain by 21. He must have been so proud of himself. You see, it doesn’t matter how much you dress it up and get asked to look at things from the point of view of the situation at the time. I take all that as read. What I question is why we’re supposed to blindly look at this guy as some kind of hero. So far I’ve seen nothing but slavery and nepotism. As for being Captain of the Hinchinbrook - I can’t tell from this whether or not he was a great Captain. I don’t know what it means to capture four enemy ships. I really want to believe, but I need more evidence. I need a better story. Come on, Ladybird! Give me some detail! Prove to me this guy is worthy of my respect, or I’m just going to give up out of sheer boredom and do Christopher Columbus instead…
