He gave the following account: I have been a seaman for about 18 years but was recently in attendance upon Mr Torry, who was one of the passengers on the Pegasus when she went down. I think it was about 20 minutes past twelve when the vessel struck. I was down in the cabin lying on a sofa and when I found that the vessel had struck, I ran on deck and having seen the state of matters there I went down to the cabin for Mr Torry. I told the passengers below that I believed the ship had struck, but they did not seem to comprehend what I meant. Some of the passengers, chiefly the ladies, were in bed. When I reached the deck with Mr Torry, I saw the crew in the act of lowering the lifeboats. I put Mr Torry in the starboard quarter-boat, when it was in the act of being lowered; and when it reached the water I jumped in myself. There were about nine of us in the boat. A lady, I remember, was sitting in the bow. When we were in the boat there was a cry from the quarter-deck to stick to the ship’.
