He finds on his rescue and return to England, that his footsteps are dogged by the pirates, who fear his evidence, and various attempts are made upon his life. However, after a number of adventures, wherein appear underground passages, sliding panels and such like paraphernalia, and rescues from apparently hopeless situations through assistance coming from the most unexpected quarters, he is at last freed from his persecutors and...
