As promised, Staines banked the nugget for Crosbie and gave him the money (about 100 pounds).
The men parted on good terms, with Crosbie saying Staines should come by at any time. Staines promised not to tell anyone about Crosbie/his whereabouts/the gold. Crosbie then left for the land agent's office, and Staines remained on the steps of the Reserve Bank.
A bit later, while Staines was still sitting there, a bellman came up shouting that the Titania had shipwrecked.
Then, he saw Wells and another man exit the land office and get into a carriage.
