  • Mina Murray: [Possible dating error: Mina's 8 August entry reads as though the storm and the wreck of the Demeter occurred on the night of the 7th/morning of the 8th, despite Mina claiming to see the ship on the evening of the 6th. The 8 August Dailygraph article is ambiguous in its chronological placement of the shipwreck, although this editor has opted for the 6th/7th dating.] Mr. Swales apologizes to Mina for his earlier morbid commentary claiming that he senses his own end to be near. As he speaks to her, a great storm approaches Whitby and a strange ship (The Demeter) comes into view.
