On 27 september 1894, Arthur Conan Doyle was on board the S.S. Elbe en route to New York. During the voyage he wrote the following poem in Captain Kurt von Goessel's autograph album.




Luck to the Elbe in every weather,
May her fortune never fail her;
Boat and master match together,
Gallant ship and gallant sailor.
