Perfectly Satisfied that the Vessel is Unsinkable

Dundee Evening Telegraph, April 15, 1912

We have nothing direct from the Titanic, but are perfectly satisfied that the vessel is unsinkable. The fact that the Marconi messages have ceased means nothing. It may be due to atmospherical conditions, the coming up of the ships, or something of that sort.

We are not worried over the possible loss of the ship, as she will not go down, but we are sorry for the inconvenience caused to the travelling public.

We are absolutely certain that the Titanic is able to withstand any damage.

Accident to the “Titanic”


Leeds Mercury, Yorkshire, April 16, 1912

The White Star liner Titanic, the largest ship in the world, has met with an accident by colliding with an iceberg. Wireless telegraphy played an important part in bringing assistance upon the scene, and the passengers were effectually removed to other liners that hurriedly steamed to the rescue. The Titanic was on her maiden voyage. The liner is constructed on lines that make her almost unsinkable, and it is thought that she will readily be towed to safety.

Not really, mother! I won’t believe it. You and me descended from horrible things like those – that stand and stare and poke things through the bars. Impossible!
