A Titanic lifebelt was washed up near New York, and has been washing about in the sea for 19 years, or it may that became entangled the wreck and was carried to the bottom, but that the rotting of the ropes released it to the surface fairly recently.

In any case, though it is sad echo of the tragedy, it is a wonderful testimony to the conscientious workmanship of the man who made it.
