'We're trusting you on that one,' Algy decided. 'If you can get stuff into sick dogs without being bitten, you can get stuff into Biggles.'

Algy's faith in Bertie was not misplaced. It wasn't easy, but as Biggles wasn't known for his biting propensities, Bertie soon had the antibiotics into him.

'Is he any better do you think?' Ginger asked hopefully?

'Well, he's not any worse,' Algy decided. 'Doesn't it take two or three days before antibiotics work?'

"Depends," Bertie answered. "I'd settle for him not getting any worse."

Ginger had a very disturbed night. He woke frequently and checked that Biggles was still breathing each time. Biggles slept like a log.

Ginger tried to get Biggles' antibiotics down him, but couldn't. In the end, he had to wake Bertie.

Biggles swallowed them obediently for Bertie, but didn't wake. 'Should we wake Algy up?' Ginger worried.

"No," Bertie decided. "His temperature isn't any higher than it was. You get some shuteye. Use my bed. I'll stay with the Old warrior for a while."

Ginger didn't sleep any better in Bertie's bed. He soon came through to his and Biggles's room again to see if there was any change.

There was no change. Bertie wasn't too worried. Biggles wasn't rambling. He looked at the box of antibiotics. Taking the packet he undid it and lifted out the little leaflet and perused it.

"My Spanish is a bit rusty," He stated, "and so is my Latin, but I think this says that drowsiness is a side effect. What do you make of it, laddie?"

Ginger tried to read it. 'I can't make it out. Let's take it downstairs to the desk clerk and see if they can translate it properly.'

"Jolly good idea," Bertie enthused. "You do that and I'll stay with Biggles."

The clerk could, and did. Ginger listened carefully and made notes. He went back to Bertie and showed him.

'Sleeping pills!' Bertie said in disgust. 'We've been feeding him bally sleeping pills. Where are the antibiotics?'

"Perhaps there's another set of pills somewhere," Ginger started looking through Biggles ' drawers. "Maybe Algy would know."

They woke Algy up to find out. He was not happy to be woken up or to find that they had been giving Biggles sleeping pills.

"There was just the one lot," He finally said. "The Doctor gave me a prescription for the hospital Pharmacy. I suppose I'd better go back. "

He did. The pharmacist refused to issue any antibiotics without a new prescription. The doctor wouldn't issue a new prescription without seeing the patient. Algy gave up and returned, to find Biggles still peacefully sleeping.

Algy looked at the spider bite. The dreaded red streaks were not there, although the wound was slightly puffy.

Biggles was still somewhat hot, but it looked like his immune system was holding the infection at bay. Algy sighed and thought about returning to bed, but he'd been awake too long. Biggles continued to sleep.

They sat and discussed what they should do next. When Biggles woke up and if he wasn't obviously feverish any more he would be wanting to carry on with the mission. Algy proposed getting ahead of the game.

They were talking so intently they missed Biggles waking up, and he had sat up and swallowed two of his pills which had been put back on his bedside table before anyone could stop him.

Algy swore. "We'll, that settles it," He stated flatly. "Bertie, you stay with Biggles. Ginger and I will go out to look the area Biggles had marked on the map." He gave a small laugh. "Wouldn't it be funny if we could find the treasure before Biggles woke up again."

"It depends on what we see," Algy replied non-commitally. "I'd hate to say I wasn't and miss a good opportunity."

Algy and Ginger flew out towards the coordinates which had been worked out earlier. Somewhat to Algy's surprise the island was there and easily recognizable.
