GREAT WHITE CROSS.
Sign In the Sky Over the Spot Where
the Leinster Sank.
Canon Pim, rector of Christ Church,
Kingstown, in a statement to the "Irish
"On Saturday afternoon last there was
a bank of cloud on the horizon, and
against a clear sky above it there appeared
for some moments the form of a
great white cross of absolutely perfect
shape. It was seen by at least four
members of my own household, not all
of them together or from the same place,
as well as by other people.
"One of the witnesses described it to
me that it had seemed to him first as if
there were a great cloud figure with out-
stretched arms which assumed the form
of a cross, and as the sharpness of its
outlines passed it seemed to be full of
the faces of men and women. It was
just, as it were, over the place where
the disaster (to the Leinster) had happened."
