A messenger from the Captain came for Elijah early today. But he was already out and about and I did not know where.
This crewman was downcast at the news. They had been all night trying to cut their way into Stan’s cabin – unsuccessfully.
I told him to check the superstructure from this level down, and I would cover the upper levels.
I learned his whereabouts when I questioned the Purser in his office. That gentleman told me that Elijah was in the sanctuary cabin.
I turned to go, but he held me up. Elijah had left word that he was not to be disturbed.
There was nothing to do but go tell the Captain that we have to wait.
