Book 8: Chapter 27 Summary

Poop deck of the Minerva, the Pool of London, Oct. 26, 1714

The king has ordered that Daniel's cabin be searched aboard the Minerva in case he has hidden gold there. All of Daniel's lodgings in London are searched, as well as the guns aboard the Minerva in case one has been made of gold and painted black. Sir Isaac leads the search and when nothing is found he suffers what Daniel at first believes to be a stroke.

Daniel feels responsible for Sir Isaacs's illness and guilty for putting an ailing man under duress, so he rushes to the natural philosopher's bedside.
