"Can ye help?" she asked, hoping that George could come up with

I would think that they would know that she is playing a dual role, and

George lays aside his work and listens to Cygni. McDonald, who is standing nearby also listens.
"The Spaniards may not ken that they are free, wot with fighten the fires." McDonald looks back towards the glow. "But sure as Hell they'll com a lookin fer em once they do ken.
