"D. Wallechinsky and 1. Wallace, People's Almanac, Doubleday, N.Y., 1975, 1339 report that in February 1891, the ship Star of the East caught an eighty foot sperm whale. A seaman, James Bartley, had disappeared and was presumed drowned; but the next day, when the crew was cutting up the whale, he was found alive inside the fish."
