18-07-1917 - Lying to off Clipperton Island

4 P.M. to 6 P.M.:
At 5:05 the gig and landing party returned from Clipperton Island with the following refugees who requested to be taken from the island, viz:- Senora Alicia R. de Arnaud, age 29 years, Ramon Arnaud, 8 years, Alicia Arnaud, 6 ears, Lydia Olga Arnaud, 4 years, Angel Arnaud, 2 years; Senora Tirsa Randon, 22 years, Altagracia Quiroz, 22 years, Rosalia Nava, 15 years, Francisco Irra, 12 years, Antonio Irra, 6 years and Guadalupe Cardona, 2-1/2 yrs.
The above are the only survivors of a colony of 30 persons established 12 years ago by Pac.Phospahte Co. Ltd of S.F. Cal.
No supply ship had visited them in 3 years, the others of the colony had died of scurvy or in other ways, and these women and children had been living on the flesh and eggs of birds.
After considering their condition the Commanding Officer decided to give them passage to Salina Cruz, Mexico.

Wikipedia has an article on Clipperton Island, which includes a photograph of the survivors on board Yorktown.

It doesn't make for a pretty story, though.
