    http://www.atlantictransportline.us/content/32Minnetonka.htm
    "In the very early days of World War One Captain E. G. Cannons thought that the Minnetonka was being chased by a German cruiser, and raced her at full speed through thick fog to the safety of New York harbor, with all lights out and her forghorn silent. Approaching Nantucket she had exchanged suspicious wireless messages with an unidentified ship and Cannons felt it necessary to make a run for safety. Passengers reported that as she accelerated away, 'we felt the ship begin to shake from forward to aft and the thumping of the engines could be heard all over the promenade deck.'"
