Warned that a man named Jefferson traveling on the same freighter might try to steal it, Colby ultimately forms a partnership with Jefferson following the fatal heart attack of Berrien aboard ship. Jefferson betrays and shoots him, but Colby saves himself and the rare documents in time. They will be returned to a museum while he and Anna can enjoy a $25,000 reward.
