My daughter, sir.

The devoted daughter

of Jeremy John Love.

Jeremy,

I'm not your daughter.

No, not in fact,

but in spirit.

You seem a gentleman

of discernment, sir.

Tell me, can you

always spot the queen?

I believe so.

Excellent, I've heard...

No, no.

Don't go away, my dear.

Jeremy, please.

You show a taste

for entertainment, sir,

entertainment with

a dash of risk.

Well?

Well, sir, observe your queen

is now between two knaves,

thus.

But can you tell me

where the queen is hiding now?

And if I do?

The stake is yours

to name, sir.

A pound.

A pound it is.

Put it up.

Oh, well, I seldom carry

large sums of money upon my...

You have other assets.

Perhaps a kiss

from your daughter-in-spirit.

Jeremy, I won't be...

Keep your hair on,

he can't win.

Man the mizzen

top-sail sheets.

A golden sovereign.

Gallant risk, sir.

Now, sir.

Now, can you tell me

where the queen is hiding?

Yes. Up the sleeve of a cheat

who is about to get 30 lashes.

Thirty?

You wouldn't have a man

of his age whipped.

His age hasn't improved

his honesty or yours.

Slave driver.

Wait.

I'll give you the kiss.

You're not giving it,

I won it.

He's got her

anchored all right.

Another cheat.

I paid you.

You can do better.

Slave driver.

Yes.

Yes, Mr. Garth.

This woman for sale?

Yes, Mr. Garth.

They're all for sale.

Indentured servant?

No, sir. Felon.

Felon?

It ain't deep in her

character, Mr. Garth.

She's good manners,

gentle, sweet.

Fit for all kinds

of housework.

I'll buy her.

I won't be sold to this man.

What's her price?

Mr. Leach,

the judge said public auction.

Hold your tongue.

She's right.

We'll have an auction

right here.

Gentlemen,

would any of you care to bid

against me for his girl?

Not me.

I don't hold much
