“That was Flint’s Treasure that we had come so far to seek, and that had cost already the lives of seventeen men from the Hispaniola. How many it had cost in the amassing, what blood and sorrow, what good ships scuttled on the deep, what brave men walking the plank blindfolded, what shot of cannon, what shame and lies and cruelty, perhaps no man alive could tell…”
Robert Louis Stevenson, ‘Treasure Island’
