“Shackleton was taking his disappointment very badly. As I had feared, the sight of the land to which he had counted on bringing his men…cast him into the depths of despair. For the first time in three years I saw him take a glass of whiskey. He was unaccustomed to it and it affected him at once.”

— Frank Worsley
