Trenton Evening Times

Word was received by Charles G. Roebling yesterday afternoon that Frank Stanley, the chauffeur who motored Mr. Roebling's son, Washington A. Roebling II and Stephen W. Blackwell through Europe, that he was not a passenger on the doomed Titanic but was safe in New York. Stanley saw his name on the list of those thought to have perished and immediately wired the Roeblings to the contrary. Stanley arrived in New York from Rotterdam the later part of last week. He became sick abroad and obtained permission to return home. It is believed that he brought the Roebling car with him.

[Note. Walter H. Harris of 350 Hamilton Ave. cabled his wife that he was still in London, having not taken the Titanic as he had told his wife earlier]
