||I mistook my readings and set a bad course. For days we steamed north-west - not west - into the empty dark. our supplies ran out, and still no sign of port. Hunger set in, and terror, and what I pray was madness. Ravening, desperate, raving, we agreed to draw lots, with the loser giving up life and flesh so the others could go on.

My dear, solemn, solid Richard. There were more after. Seven times we drew. Seven of our number went into the pot, and not a one of them quietly. Those of us who made it back to port swore never to speak of our crime, but one of us - someone whith a keener conscience than mine - confessed. I fled the noose to zee again. I regret it all. I will do anything. Please.
