X points to the wreckage that you don't see from the picture showing the backs of the houses and the sand bank as it is hid by the bank of sand. XX our house. XXX the Miller home. Notice how the mud has caked and cracked at XXXX. What you see in the yard there just above the no. 13 is a pool of oil that ruined things.

The little tree you see at the side or our house and the Palm in front are all that kept it from floating away."
