Summary: 

Aunt Jenny tells Bayard of blockade runners in Charleston, who were regarded as heroes even though they were doing it for the money. She mentions one particular one, an Englishman, who had a vocabulary, she said, of just seven words: "I'll have rum, thanks" and "No bloody moon"; she repeats the last three to Bayard as he is about to go to town to confront Redmond (244-45).
