You can't. It seemed to Nina that there was no change and no difference. Lakamba's visits had ceased when, by a convenient decree of Providence and the help of a little scientific manipulation, the old ruler of Sambir departed this life. They would be rich and respected.

All this was nearly within his reach. Almayer being much too active for the happiness and even safety of the household. You should go to the Rajah here; you can see in the daytime his houses across the river, there, where those fires are burning on the shore. She wants them to marry so her daughter could stay native, because she is highly distrustful of white men and their ways.

Almayer, the very sound of her shrill voice, was the signal for a hurried departure. The Rajah departed, baffled but courteous, and soon Almayer began to reap the benefit of improved relations with the ruler in the shape of the recovery of some debts, paid to him with many apologies and many a low salaam by debtors till then considered hopelessly insolvent. This block will remain in place until legal guidance changes. When he does return, he goes straight to Lakamba, a Malayan rajah, and tells him that he found the gold mine and that some Dutchmen had captured his ship.

He was very soon made to understand that he was not wanted in that corner of it where old Lingard and his own weak will placed him, in the midst of unscrupulous intrigues and of a fierce trade competition.

South, probably, till it drifted in sight of Celebes, as far as Macassar, perhaps! Dain Maroola, dazzled by the unexpected vision, forgot the confused Almayer, forgot his brig, his escort staring in open-mouthed admiration, the object of his visit and all things else, in his overpowering desire to prolong the contemplation of so much loveliness met so suddenly in such an unlikely place--as he thought.

During those ten years the child had changed into a woman, black-haired, olive-skinned, tall, and beautiful, with great sad eyes, where the startled expression common to Malay womankind was modified by a thoughtful tinge inherited from her European ancestry.

Europe had swallowed up the Rajah Laut apparently, and Almayer looked vainly westward for a ray of light out of the gloom of his shattered hopes.

That's why the Balinese prince shows up in Borneo, he is looking for gunpowder. Almayer plans to smuggle Dain away from the Dutch so he will not be arrested.

The child must be brought up decently. Unfortunately her teachers did not understand her nature, and the education ended in a scene of humiliation, in an outburst of contempt from white people for her mixed blood. Her mother was feasting her eyes and ears with what was taking Almayers Folly: A Story of an Eastern River book on the front verandah, and Nina approached to take her share in the rare pleasure of some novelty.

Each day's sun shooting its morning rays above the tree- tops lit up the usual scene of daily activity. Some of Abdulla's business; curse him! Whether they traded in brick godowns or on the muddy river bank; whether they reached after much or little; whether they made love under the shadows of the great trees or in the shadow of the cathedral on the Singapore promenade; whether they plotted for their own ends under the protection of laws and according to the rules of Christian conduct, or Almayers Folly: A Story of an Eastern River book they sought the gratification of their desires with the savage cunning and the unrestrained fierceness of natures as innocent of culture as their own immense and gloomy forests, Nina saw only the same manifestations of love and hate and of sordid greed chasing the uncertain dollar in all its multifarious and vanishing shapes.

Often on moonlight nights the belated fishermen of Sambira saw a small canoe shooting out from the narrow creek at the back of the white man's house, and the solitary occupant paddle cautiously down the river in the deep shadows of the bank; and those events, duly reported, were discussed round the evening fires far into the night with the cynicism of expression common to aristocratic Malays, and with a malicious pleasure in the domestic misfortunes of the Orang Blando--the hated Dutchman.
