I found the scrap book, 3 men were lost in this incident. says she turned turtle in heavy swells steaming away with the Mystic. one of the crew of the Mystic actually jamp into the sea to try an save men but was nearly killed himself. Only 1 survivor from the Majestic who jamp as she rolled over. Doesn't sound nice at all!
