Describe the mental condition of the voyagers on 4 and 5 January.

Answer :

The mental condition of the voyagers on January 4 was oscillating between hope and despair. The water had finally receded after about thirty-six hours of continuous pumping out water. They were given the very first meal in the last two days. This meal was given to them by the Captain’s wife. The meal consisted of some corned beef and cracker biscuits. After this the storm started building up badly. And on 5th January the situation deteriorated and became desperate. When the Captain went to console his kids, the younger kid asked him innocently if they all were about to die. He also added that he wouldn’t be afraid if they were all together. This strong statement made the Captain confident and he began to fight for sustenance.
