Miss March declared today she received a letter from Edward Sands, of 346 Broadway, New York, superintendent of mails, asking what arrangements Miss March wished to make. She informed him that she wished the body forwarded to a local undertaker. Arrangements for the funeral will not be made until its arrival.
March often told his daughter, she said, that he was unafraid of the water, and knew that he would never die at sea.
"He believed these big liners to be unsinkable," said Miss March. "I think he was certain that the Titanic could not sink."
John S. March had been in the employ of the government for more than twenty years, and has been mail clerk on various liners for more than eight years. When off duty he always made his home with his daughter.
John Starr March
