Dear Dave and Barb,
This article that you present is excellent, touching and above all helps tremendously in the quest to allow the sentimentalists to see the value of salvage regarding the RMS Titanic.

I spoke with someone today who had recently been to one of the places where you can view contents from the trunk and she said it was eery in a way. Kind of like you want to see it and learn from it but it was sad that this article you are seeing was actually retrieved from so far below the water surface and had once belonged to someone who had died.

One of the Postman from the mailroom owned a watch. It was on display at the US Postal Museum here in DC. I just stared at it for a long time contemplating the life it had belonged to.

Your article brings some folks back to life for us. Thank you for taking the time to write it.

I have just finished reading this intriguing story and was interested in the remaining mysteries which Dave and Barb have highlighted.

Have there been any developments since? Do we yet know why Henry Sutehall travelled with Howard Irwin's luggage but without Howard? What were the three possible scenario's explaining Howard's absence? What happened to Henry's fiancee? Has Howard's life story been told yet?

best wishes,
