"It was," fie say's, "the most horrible sight I ever saw. There were thirty bodies strew- ing the beach, all of them encased in ice." In the bottoms of some of the boats he found twelve bodies, including those of fev- eral women who had been frozen to death while drifting- Gray was unable to asoer- tain the names of the survivors, owing to their precarious condition, and he mentions that the bodies will "fie left in the ice until they are handed over to the undertakers.
