Capt. H E Draper

From My Life at Sea by Commander W Caius Crutchley

SS Syria 1875

The new captain was H. E. Draper, and even now after a lapse of years I find a difficulty in rightly defining his character.

I was with him a long time in various ships, and found him kind and considerate; he had, however, a caustic wit that was very telling, and which was perhaps nourished at the expense of other more important qualities.
