Why did Barlow want to speak privately with Charlotte?
1 Answer | Add Yours
Barlow wanted to warn Charlotte that all is not as it seems on the ship. Captain Jaggery is not the nice man Charlotte thinks he is; in fact, he is so abusive to his crew that they are near mutiny. It would be best for her to get off the ship as soon as she can.
