Front cover: The Daily Graphic, 5 April 1873. S.S. Atlantic's Chief Officer, John Firth, "When daylight came I counted thirty-two persons in the mizzen-mast rigging with me including one woman....Her half-nude body was still fast to the rigging, her eyes protruding, her mouth foaming, a terribly ghastly spectacle, rendered more ghastly by the contrast with numerous jewels which sparkled on her hands. We had to leave her body there and it is probably there yet. The scene at the wreck was an awful one, such as I have never before witnessed, and hope never to witness again." THS Collection
