Toward this channel, then, away they went at a speed of something like sixteen
knots per hour, the barque with her string of colours still fluttering bravely in
defiance of the adverse gale, and the Flying Fish with the white ensign of the
Royal Yacht Squadron, of which Sir Reginald was a member, streaming from her
ensign staff in honour of little Florrie. It was a strange sight, even in that region of
fantastic phantasmagoria, to see the two ships, one of which, moreover, wore

The two wings of the Palace faced him, battleshipgrey in the sunshine,
surmounted by their twin towers, the White Ensign flying. Between and beyond
them stood the Queen's House in its plain, incomparable elegance; and on the
