|J. Bruce Ismay|
Monday, April 15, 1912
On board the Carpathia, White Star's president
J. Bruce Ismay, hands over a message for the New York office to Captain Rostron which reads:
"Deeply regret advise you. Titanic sank this morning after collision iceberg. Resulting in serious loss of life. Full particulars later."
Ismay sits alone in the doctor's room. Shocked, defeated, and overwhelmed by guilt. At the doctor's request, fellow survivor 17 year-old Jack Thayer, tries to offer some comfort to Ismay.
