It was early spring in the Year of our Lord 1711 and all of Europe was at war. A complicated series of marriages and alliances in the previous century had created a crisis of leadership that would, if allowed to stand, severely disrupt the balance of power. King Louis XIV of France had set his grandson Philip on the throne of Spain, a move designed to unite the two great powers. However, Leopold I of the Holy Roman Empire had other plans. While he sought to establish his own claim to the Spanish throne, his more immediate concern was preventing the unification of France and Spain. To do so he enlisted the help of England and the Netherlands. The war began, as many do, with great energy, enthusiasm and patriotic fervor. Soon, however, French expansion was checked, the fighting in Spain reduced to a stalemate. By 1711, the war had drug on for almost ten years in both the Old World and the New.
In such a climate there are those who become rich, those who become poor, and those who die. One of those who desired to become rich was Dominico Salvatore Bartolli, a merchant of Genoa. The Bartolli family had been trading from Genoa since the peak of it’s power centuries earlier. And although Genoa’s most prosperous and powerful years appeared to be behind her, the Bartolli family had held onto and even increased their wealth and standing in that notable city. Dominico owned several small ships and traded a variety of goods, traveling the Mediterranean and the west coast of Africa with anything that someone was willing to buy. With the war effort of many countries requiring large stores and equipment, there was never a shortage of buyers. And although Genoa was nominally an ally of Spain, sides mattered little to Dominico; gold did. To that end he had sent his young son, Giovanni, to England.
He was a handsome lad with the fine features typical of his family pedigree. An aristocratic nose sat above thin lips. His eyes were dark with just a hint of blue and they sparkled with the mirth of youth. His low brow was graced with thick eyebrows that gave him a brooding expression when he wasn’t revealing his straight, white teeth in a ready smile. His cleft chin jutted slightly to reveal a mature determination when he needed it, a look of confidence and authority required among the sailors on his father’s ships. His straight, raven black hair fell loosely to his shoulders. He was of medium height and his thin build was finally filling out as he approached his eighteenth birthday. He wore an expression of friendly gravity that seemed beyond his years. In addition to his classical education, he had studied under his father since he was knee high, traveling by sea and land to many places, learning languages and customs that would one day make him a skilled trader like his father. Dominico had slowly brought Giovanni along in his business, doing his best to strike that delicate balance between pushing him to mature by giving him more and more responsibility and allowing him to grow at a pace that was comfortable. Dominico was a wise man and had done well by his oldest child and felt he was now ready to be less of a student and more of a partner. For Giovanni, a trip to England sounded exciting. He had heard much of the place and had met many English traders, the friendship between England and Genoa going back centuries, present circumstances notwithstanding. So it was with the apprehension of great responsibility and the anticipation of a great adventure that Giovanni Bartolli arrived in England.
___________________________
He stood at the rail of the sloop and looked out over the naval yard at Chatham, the cool spring breeze gently blowing through his black hair. The air was filled with the smell of freshly sawed wood, rotting fish and sewage. He nervously rubbed the worn wood of the rail with his hands. Chatham was a dirty place on the River Medway, a stream made filthy by the incessant human activity there. But then again, it certainly wasn’t the worst place he’d seen in his many travels with his father.
“Mr. Bartolli, yer' gig’s ready.”
Giovanni looked down at his side to see a young boy of not more than ten years with dirty blond hair and tar on his hands, his shirt and beneath his left eye. His broad smile revealed several missing teeth.
“Thank you young man,” he replied, his English thick with his Italian accent.
“I’ll ‘ave your t’ings loaded straightaway,” he stated enthusiastically, running off across the deck and disappearing down a hatch.
Giovanni smiled. He could remember his first voyages with his father when he was even younger; the fascination with the working of the ship, feeling the motion of the deck under his feet, the wind and spray, the excitement of each new port of call. As he got older, he learned to navigate and his father eventually trusted him at the ripe old age of fifteen with overseeing some of the coastal trading. Now a strapping young man of seventeen, he was in England to explore the possibilities of trading, particularly with the Navy. War always meant money for merchants regardless of which side they sold to. Although there hadn’t been a major naval action for a few years, there was always the blockade and dealing with French and Spanish privateers. That meant a constant need for supplies and men for the ships being built in this very town.
“Sir, everyt’ings ready.” The boy had appeared at his side and was pointing to the other side of the ship.
“Thank you..again,” he replied, tousling the boy’s hair. He reached into his vest pocket and retrieved a small coin. The boy smiled, attempted a bow and then ran off. Giovanni walked across the ship and looked over the side at the small boat, two burly sailors at the oars.
“Watch your step Mr. Bartolli.”
Giovanni turned to see the captain, a tall, gangly man with white hair and beard, offering his hand.
“Thank you Captain Peltman, the voyage was most pleasant.” Giovanni smiled and bowed slightly.
“You’re welcome...remember my cousin at the Blue Pearl, she’ll set you up right while you’re here. Right off Watling, the main stretch, less than a quarter mile. Best dumplings in town!”
“I will Captain,” he replied, placing his broad brimmed hat firmly on his head and stepping over the rail to let himself down into the boat. He saw the two seamen watching apprehensively, no doubt used to landsman ending up in the river. Giovanni was nimble enough and seated himself easily.
“Boat’s away!” yelled one of the seamen as he pulled on his oar. They were soon moving smoothly toward the waterfront, the slight breeze agitating the water just enough to cause it to slap against the side of the boat as they rowed. As he gazed about the harbor, he saw two frigates in various stages of construction, an assortment of merchant vessels loading or unloading cargo, small boats like his moving quickly around the harbor like so many bees. He heard the bellows of men directing the activities of the wharf, cursing and prodding others to move more quickly. From the yard came the sounds of men working in the saw pit and the rhythmic hammering of the caulkers. Peddlers hawked their wares as the wooden wheels of their carts thumped on the cobblestones. As they approached the wharf, he surveyed the various businesses; a seafood market, the chandlary and other small shops. The drab gray wood contrasted sharply with the gay colors and classic architecture of his beloved Genoa. It made England seem less....civilized. The seamen raised their oars smartly and brought the old gig next to the wharf with a gentle thump. Without a word one of them scampered up the dock and the other quickly handed the two small trunks to his companion.
“Le’ me give you a hand, govn’er,” offered the one on the dock, kneeling and reaching toward Giovanni.
“Yes..thank you,” he grunted as the man pulled him up to his feet.
“Can I get you a cab?” asked the sailor, straightening up and adjusting his blue and white striped shirt.
“Do you know the Blue Pearl?”
“Aye, the cap’n’s cousin’s place. She’s an old hag but the hash is good!” he elbowed Giovanni and winked at his companion who began laughing.
“Jonnick mate, we’ve freshened our hawse many a night at the Pearl.”
Giovanni hesitated. “Is it far?” He hoped his English would be good enough to follow directions.
“Naw,” the burly man replied, turning toward the street so quickly Giovanni had to duck one of his pigtails as it swung through the air. “Jus’ go out this road,” he began, pointing to what looked like an alley between two ramshackle shops. “When you get to Watling Street, turn left. A couple of blocks at the watch shop turn right and it’s jus’ down the road.”
“Left..right,” Giovanni pointed.
“Aye, tha’s it kid,” he bellowed, slapping him on the back, any previous formality now completely forgotten. Giovanni picked up his trunks, one in each hand.
“Thank you,” he said, bowing slightly and moving around the sailor.
“Don’t mention it, give me regards to Gertie!”
