I'M STARVED WAS ISMAY'S FIRST WORD

Chicago Daily Journal

"For God's sake get me something to eat. I'm starved. I don't care what it costs or what it is, bring it to me."

"For God's sake get me something to eat. I'm starved. I don't care what it costs or what it is, bring it to me."

This was the first statement made by J. Bruce Ismay, directing head of the White Star line, one of the few men rescued from the Titanic, a few minutes after he was landed on board the Carpathia.

It is vouched for by an officer of the Carpathia, who requested that his name be withheld.
