The Irish Times, 16 April 1912

The Titanic was so seriously damaged that the passengers—over 1,470 in number—were 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.
