Capt. Lord Explains

The Washington Herald

Liverpool, Aug. 16---In an attempt to vindicate himself, Capt. Lord, of the
Leland [sic] liner Californian, who was censured by both the American and
British commissions which investigated the Titanic disaster for his failure
to go to the aid of the White Star liner, to-day published a lengthy article
in self-defense here. Capt. Lord explained the proceedings on board his
ship on the night of the disaster and declared that he hopes to remove an
undeserved stigma upon his character.
