After swimming a .short time I was able to get an oar and some other floating mateiial. with tho help of which I wa.s just able to keep on the surface. After holding on for a long time—l believe it was an hour and a-half—l must have become imecn.-vions. for I have no recollection of being pirked out of the water.
