When they heard of the plan for the ship both his wife Lilian and his mistress, the explorer Gertrude Bell threatened suicide. He wrote to Gertrude..
                   
"When I asked for this ship, my joy in it was half strangled by that you said, I can’t even name it or talk about it. As we go steaming in under the port guns in our rotten old collier, shall I think about it… Don’t do it. Time is nothing, we join up again, but to hurry the pace is unworthy of us all."
