|And the sea gave up the dead|
to the memory of
the eighteen mariners who perished
in the wreck of the S. S. "Agnes Jack"
of the bacon line on Port Eynon Point, Jan. 27th 1883
within sight of a large number of people on the shore
who were powerless to render any aid.
|Jno. Jones, Master|
W. C. Watkins, Chief Officer
W. M. Waben, 2nd Chief Officer
W. Morrison, Chief Engineer
J. Dowse, 2nd Chief Engineer
|Phillip Beynon, Pilot|
| Oh! Had there been a lifeboat there|
to breast the stormy main
these men might not have perished thus,
imploring help in vain.
