The mate's hair and beard are black, not his skin.
He shows up mysteriously in port, and hires on The Sapphire as first mate. There are all sorts of rumours about his past, and he keeps his mouth shut.
The Sapphire's captain, Capt. Johns is a big believer in spiritualism and the afterlife, and torments his mate with tales of ghosts and seances. Then, one day, the mate is stuck down--he's seen a ghost.
An amusing story with a completely unexpected ending.
