The Duke had brought with him the lantern that he a lways kept in his cabin. He had used it in the past when he had sometimes gone ashore alone at night. Now, without speaking to Jenkins, he lit the lanter n and then, moving a little further into the cave, he lifted the lantern high a nd saw exactly all that the King had told him he would find. On either side of the cave, which did not go in very far, there were a number of large rocks. They did not quite reach the roof of the cave, but left just enough space, he thought, to hold the statue of Apollo invisible to a casual explorer. Jenkins was watching him and, when the Duke put dow n his lantern, he knew exactly what to do without any instructions. Together they went back, lifted the statue very ver y carefully and carried it into the cave. They placed it gently on top of the rough rocks and there was then no more than six inches between the statue of Apollo and th e roof of the cave. The Duke was thankful to find that the rocks were d ry and so there was no likelihood of the sea flooding in and sweeping the precious statue away. As he laid Apollo gently down, now back at last on his own land, the Duke experienced a strange feeling. Something he had never felt before. He could not explain it.
