Tues., May 2, 1843. About one p.m. the mate of the ship Yorkshire opened The Testament at the 27th chapter of Acts and asked the passengers how they would feel to be shipwrecked like Paul. Elder Thomas Bullock replied instantly, "It is very likely we shall be shipwrecked; but the hull of this old vessel has got to carry us safe into New Orleans." The mate was then called away to hoist the fore-top-royal sail.

Between one and two the next morning, when off Cape St. Antonio, Cuba, there was much vivid lightning, when a white squall caught the fore-top-royal sail, which careened the vessel. When the foremast, mainmast and mizzenmast snapped asunder with an awful crash, the whole of the mast [p.434] above, with the jib and spanker, and sixteen sails and studding poles were carried overboard with a tremendous splash and surf when the vessel righted. Daybreak found the deck all in confusion and a complete wreck. During the day a sail was hoisted from the stump of the mainmast to the bow of the vessel, thus leaving nothing but the hull of the vessel to carry the Saints into New Orleans.
