Mrs. Cassebeer released a letter dated May 7, 1912 (reprinted in On Board RMS Titanic by George Behe, page 236)
“There was absolutely no panic. The discipline was excellent. I was in the boat commanded by Third Officer H. J. Pitman. There were 37 people in the boat, five of them being seamen. The boat could not hold any more at the time, as it would have been foolhardy to attempt to overload it, inasmuch as it would have buckled and broken in two from the extra weight the moment it was swung from the davits.”
Third Officer Pitman was in charge of #5.
