whale It was about two miles off shore
and moving oit to sea with the Cooper
brothers froin Water Mill.
As a matter of fact the Cooper
brothers htad1 cnught the wliale. The
only trouble was that, having Caught

They tried reversing the engine In
the lop~e that by so doing they might

Thie motion was entirely lost on their
