ARCHIBALD GRACIE - Wife's Whereabouts Unknown

New York Times

Prominent in Washington---His Wife's Whereabouts Not Known
WASHINGTON , April 15---Archibald Gracie, one of the Titanic's passengers, is well known in Washington and New York society. His wife has recently attracted attention by leaving town to avoid service of a subpoena in connection with the lunacy trial of Mrs. H. C. Gage. Mrs. Gage was arrested after she had made threats against Charles J. Bell, President of the American Security and Trust Company, and in court testified that Mrs. Gracie had informed her of Mr. Bell's efforts to thwart her social ambitions.

Miss Edith Gracie said to-day she did not know her mother's whereabouts. Mr. Gracie is the son of Col. Archibald Gracie of Mobile, Ala., and has made Washington his home for several years.

“I hardly know what to say or think," said Miss Gracie. “Why, only yesterday I received a letter from father, which he addressed to me from Southampton. He told me in the letter that he would be home in a few days, and I was awaiting word from mother as to whether we should meet the Titanic or not.

"My father who was operated on several months ago, went to Europe, to recuperate. He had regained his health, and by the tenor of his letter anticipated surprising us by the wonders his trip had worked in building up his constitution. It is too terrible to think of, but I am hoping against hope that he has come through the perils of the accident without harm."
