The Times, March 3rd, 1785::

" ... As Capt.Severet, of a Jersey sloop, was sailing into Jersey road about a week ago, he fell overboard on his face, and floated in that posture near half an hour without making the least struggle to save himself, notwithstanding ropes, &c were immediately flung overboard to him for that purpose. When he was taken up, he was quite dead. He had on his great coat and boots. ..."
