In Fetch and Carry a well to do lady called Indigo Jones approaches to James to help “fetch and carry” her ship The Samantha which is stuck off the coast of Cork. The ship has been having trouble with it’s crew who believe it’s valuable cargo of “guano” is bad luck. It’s a quick job but is there more to Miss Indigo than there seems. And there is of course, the ship has come from South America’s fever coast and fever has taken hold aboard the ship.
Miss Indigo wants the cargo unloaded quickly but James and Baines know they will have trouble getting a crew aboard.
James only really takes the job on because he is keen to find the guano source. Most countries have a prohibitive export tax on it but Miss Indigo says she has a source that doesn’t making the ship’s cargo nicely valuable.
Anne and James are still unreconciled but the family are doing their best to get them back together.
