Titanic Survivor The Countess of Rothes.. "I was in command, but I had to row, and I wanted some one at the tiller. And I saw the way she was carrying herself, and I heard the quiet, determined way she spoke to the others, and I knew she was more of a man than any we had on board.
"I could see the lights of the ship starting to go under water, then soundlessly, perhaps a mile away, it just went down. It was gone. Oh yes, the sky was very black and the stars were very bright. They told me the people in the water were singing, but I knew they were screaming." Madeleine Mellinger in a Toronto Star interview, April 15, 1974, Titanic survivor
