ALEXANDRIA. Egypt, Jan. 4.
(Via London.) Charles Grant of
Iston, one of the two Americans
known to bav been on board the
British steamer Persia when It was
torpedoed In the Mediterranean last
Thursday, haa arrived In Alexandria.
Mr. Grant, so far as is known, Is the
cnljr American from whom can come
the story of the Persia's sinking. He
gave to the Associated Press today
the most detailed account of the dis
aster yet received.
'1 was In the dining saloon of ths Persia
at 1.-06 p. nr." ha said. "I Just had fin
ished my roup and th Stewart was ask
ing what I would Uk for my second
oourm, when a terrific explosion occurred.
"Ths saloon became filled with smoke,
broken glass and steam from the boilers,
which appeared to have burst. There
was no panic on board. We went on deck
as though we were at drill and reported
at the life boata on the starboard side,
as the vessel had tinted to port. I cltino;
to the railing. The last thing done was to
toe on Curtain 8trlckly's life belt.
Afloat MTreekaat Three Hoar.
"As the vessel was then listing so badly
that It was Impossible to launch the stsr
board boats. I slid down the starboard
rail into the water. I caught In a rope
which polled off a shoe, but I broke looaj
end climbed on some floating wreckage,
te which I clung.
"The last I iiw of the Persia It had Its
bow in ths air. five minutes after the ex
plosion. "After-floating about on the wreckage
until 4 o'clock In the morning, 1 saw five
boats. I was pulled Into one of them. We
rowed about looking for strsgglers.
"The boata became overloaded and the
occupants were redistributed. Four boats
were tied tog-elhor by their painters and
the1 fifth followed some distance away. -l'lcka
tp by Cralaer.
"My boat left the others in order to
eareh the more frequented steamship
channels for help. We rowed for three
hours. Then we saw a cruiser and called
out We are English.' We explained that
we were survivors of the Persia and save
directions to the cruiser as to whore the j
uiuer oomim were. mey were sojn found
and the oocupants were taken off Im
mediately by the Ekigllah sailors.
"Robert McNeely, American consul at
Aden, sat at the same table with me on
the voyage. He was not seen, probably
because his cabin was on the port sl-le,
"H was a horrible siene. The water was
black as Ink. Some passengers were
creaming, others were calling out
good-bye. Tfioee in one host sang hymns."
