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.
