When sailing day finally arrives a week later, the ship is crowded with passengers, and Wyatt's party arrives in about ten minutes after myself.
Put this box in my room
Hey Mr. Wyatt!
For the first three or four days, we have fine weather. Though I notice there is something wrong happening to my friend
Mrs. Wyatt is different from what Wyatt told me. She is rather indifferent looking, totally uneducated, and decidedly vulgar.
My friend Wyatt is so gloomy. and ayway shut himself up alone in his state-room
They stay in a different room, too. It must be a sign of divorce
There is another circumstance, too. During the two wakeful nights in question, and immediately after the disappearance of Mrs. Wyatt into the extra state-room, I'm attracted by certain singular cautious, subdued noises in that of her husband. After listening to them for some time, with thoughtful attention, I at length succeeded perfectly in translating their import. They are sounds occasioned by the artist in prying open the oblong box
7th day on the ship, a storm arrives. All was now confusion and despair. In the long boat, they start loading most of the crews and passengers and sent them off to find safety.
After loading much of the passengers, fourteen people, including me, the captain, and the Wyatt party remain on board, resolving to trust their fortunes to the jolly-boat at the stern.
However, Mr. Wyatt refuses to leave without his box. He, in fact, springs from the boat, and by almost superhuman exertion, in getting hold of a rope which hung from the fore-chains. In another moment he lands on board, and rushing frantically down into the cabin.
I won't leave without this box
Mr. Wyatt please come back here
As our distance from the wreck rapidly increased, Mr.Wyatt is seen to emerge from the companion- way, up which by dint of strength that appears gigantic, he drags, bodily, the oblong box. While we gaze in the extremity of astonishment, he passes, rapidly, several turns of a three-inch rope, first around the box and then around his body. In another instant both body and box are in the sea- disappearing suddenly, at once and forever.
