The Irish Times, 16 April 1912
|The Titanic was so seriously damaged that the passengersover 1,470 in
numberwere at once transferred to the Parisian and the Carpathia. Fortunately
the sea was calm, and the operation was completed early yesterday morning.
The Virginian, so far as can be gathered from the fragmentary Marconigrams, then
took the Titainic in tow, and attempted to get her to Halifax or to the beach
near Cape Race. The liner, however, had been too severely damaged to keep
afloat, and she sank at 2:30 (American Time) yesterday morning.
