Mr. CUNNINGHAM: Then I turned to look for a lifeboat; yes.
Senator SMITH. Did you see one?
Mr. CUNNINGHAM: No. I heard one, and I called to it.
Senator SMITH. Did that lifeboat come toward you, or did you go toward it?
Mr. CUNNINGHAM: I went toward it.
Senator SMITH. It did not come toward you?
Mr. CUNNINGHAM: I do not think so.
Senator SMITH. When you got in it, whom did you find in it?
Mr. CUNNINGHAM: There was a quartermaster in charge - Perkins or Perkis. It was No. 4 boat. They picked us up. There was also a lamp trimmer in it named Hemmings, and another sailor called Foley, and a fireman.
Perkis was specific in that he was in #4.
