This was written in deep personal pain. The writer lost his son to Scarlett fever one year prior to the Chicago Fires which wiped him out..then sent his wife and FOUR daughters ahead to London..all his daughters perished..his wife sent a cable, “survived alone” He immediately left to join his wife. As he was passing over the spot where the ship went down he was told by the captain this is the place..three miles deep. He returned to his cabin and penned the song.
