generations ago. A whole generation passed, and the succeeding one found us in the cabin with a goodly number of coevals.
Then the craft which held us began going to pieces, until a few of us were left on the raft pieced together of its fragments.
And now the raft has at last parted, and you and I are left clinging to the solitary spar, which is all that still remains afloat of the sunken vessel.”
He died on October 7th, 1894.
