Boy Fails to Take Ship

Chicago Daily News


After searching the list of survivors in vain for the name of her brother, John Meehan, Miss Mary Meehan, 4458 Drexel boulevard, was overjoyed last night when she received a cablegram from her mother in Ireland saying that the boy had not sailed on the Titanic.
 
“I am happy,” said Miss Meehan to-day. “I had given him up for lost and then that message came. Oh, I tell you it was fine reading for me. Had he been on that boat he would not have lived, for he was always a fine, brave lad, thinking always of every one but himself.”
