Lucy wondered aloud. "French people with no choice do," Darley answered. A big lugger arrived from shore with some musicians in it, and they began to strike up, behind and to the left of where Arabella and Lucy's boat lay in the bobbing host. It was a small band, admittedly, and none too tuneful, but a band nonetheless. There was a fife, a fiddle, a cornet, and a snare drum. The players stood in their boat to perform--rather precariously, Arabella thought--and bowed after each of their ragged efforts.
