[Case no 286]
(English). An aged English woman was drowned while coming to this country, after the recent death of her husband, to make her home with her only daughter. The daughter's husband, a waiter, at the time of the disaster was recovering from a severe attack of typhoid fever. The mother's body was recovered, and this Committee provided funeral expenses. Later, it was learned that the body had been buried at sea. The mother was bringing her household goods, a large amount of clothing and some cash, the exact amount of which is unknown, and, in view of this property loss, the daughter was permitted to keep the appropriation. ($100).
