A reporter from the Daily Telegraph continues to report on the strange goings on with the derelict Russian Schooner. The Dog which took flight from the ship is still at large, and is suspected to have killed and mutilated a large mastiff from the local village. The log of the derelict, the Demeter, has been translated with help from the Russian Consul.
The Captain’s log describes a terrible doom that has settled over the ship. The men are scared of something, but will not say what. The first mate has become increasingly frustrated with the men, and has lashed out at them. Over time, men have been disappearing from the boat, and despite their best efforts, more continue to go. Ultimately, on the cusp of reaching England, the first mate declares that there is a terrible danger and throws himself to the sea to save his soul. The Captain, stuck at the helm as the one remaining crewman, has resolved to lash himself to the wheel with religious artifacts to confound the creature that stalks the decks.
The captain is regarded as a hero, and is set to have a public burial tomorrow.
