Mr. Caldwell’s May 1912 letter to his college newsletter (published in On Board RMS Titanic, page 230):
    “We were in boat number 13 (not unlucky this time as we were among the first to reach the Carpathia.) I saw none of the famous people as I was too busy looking after my wife and baby to see anyone.
    The most exciting and perilous moment we had was at the time the lifeboat was being lowered. We thought that at any moment we would all be spilled out (two boat loads of women and children were lost that way.) Boat number 15 came down on top of us while we were trying to lose the “block and tackle” and we thought we would be crushed.
    There was no officer in our boat, which numbered about fifty women and children and fifteen men, so we elected a “stoker” [Barrett] to be in command of the boat.”
