American Inquiry
Affidavit of Emily Ryerson
, page 1107.   After describing lifeboat #4, she says:
    "The decks were lighted, and as you went through the window it was as if you stepped out into the dark. We were flung into the boats. There were two men - an officer inside and a sailor outside - to help us. I fell on top of the women who were already in the boat, and scrambled to the bow with my eldest daughter [Suzette]. Miss Bowen [governess] and my boy [John] were in the stern and my second daughter [Emily] was in the middle of the boat with my maid [Chaudanson]. Mrs. Thayer, Mrs. Widener, Mrs. Astor, and Miss Eustis were the only others I knew in our boat."

Following the disaster, Mrs. Martha Stephenson wrote an account, published in George Behe's On Board RMS Titanic, pages 403 to 409.  Her description of the sinking exactly describes lifeboat #4.  In addition, she says:
    "We found ourselves in the boat with Mrs. Arthur Ryerson, her boy, two daughters, governess and maid; Mrs. John Thayer and maid, Mrs. Widener and maid, Mrs. Astor, her trained nurse and maid, Mrs. Carter, her two children and maid, Mrs. Cumings, and Mrs. Walter Clark”.
