How Patrick Quinn Went Down.
J.M. Sargeant, engineer of one of the steam pumps on the Basile, which was with the Enterprise at the time she went down, says: "As I was standing close to the bulwarks I saw Patrick Quinn struggling in the water right near the tug's side. I threw him a line, which he grasped; but I saw that his face and hands were covered with oil and grease, and by the way he took hold of the line I thought his hands were frozen, as they were slipping off, and he attempted to take the rope between his teeth. I shouted: "Hold on a minute longer till I get some one to help." Then, seeing him slipping more, I grasped him by the hand which was uppermost, but being oily, it slipped from my grasp, he was washed away, drawn under the tug, and lost forever."
