CUNARD COMPANY AND THE TITANIC
---
NO CLAIM FOR RECOMPENSE

---
The Cunard Company have declined to accept from the White Star Line any
recompense for life-saving in connexion with the Titanic, or for the
loss of the Carpathia's time in putting back to New York. They have also
intimated that they do not intend to make any claim for salvage. The
company stated that they considered it a privilege that the Carpathia
and her crew were the means of picking up the Titanic's survivors.

permission from the Cunard Company to present 100 guineas to Captain
Rostron, 50 guineas each to Surgeon McGee, Purser Brown, and Chief
Steward Hughes, and one month's pay to all the other members of the crew
of the Carpathia, in recognition of the services rendered in saving the
survivors of the Titanic disaster.
