"The equal status of the two captains"
Although John was officially commodore after Titty's successful capture
of the Amazon, I think everyone understood really that in terms of
driving things along Nancy was rather more equal than John.
"Lost leader" she was called in a chapter title when ill in WH,
and I think that about sums it up.
