The Central News says -
Of the second class passengers of the Titanic, Walter Harris, of Enfield Highway and Percy Thomas Oxenham, of Ponders End, were booked on the "Philadelphia" for New York.
Owing to the coal strike that boat did not sail, and they transferred to the Titanic. Before sailing Harris visited some friends, of whom one lady practises palmistry.
After looking at Harris's hand she declined to say what she had read, merely remarking that she did not like it.
Harris's little son asked: "Is Daddy going to be drowned?"
The name of Harris is among the missing, and that of his friend among the saved.
