Each of us had found reason to be weary of the world. In truth, none of us were so concerned when a storm greeted us on the high sea and a fierce lightning set our ship afire. I heard The Siren's groaning against the harpies' wind, amidst its passengers' frightened cries. While we fretted and clambered about on the uneven deck, and while all of us displayed a blatant fear, not one uttered a prayer–no one except Catherine Stuart, my sister, who appointed God her only hope when the rest of us had chosen to ignore him in such peril.
