One of those who went yesterday to the committee for help was Elizabeth Dowdell, an English nursemaid, who came to this country to care for the little boy of an automobile manufacturer [sic].

She brought the child safely to port when the Carpathia docked and the child was cared for, but the nursemaid found that she wasn't needed any more.

She told the committee that she had had such a hard time aboard the Titanic that she couldn't stand taking care of children for a while and she didn't know what to do. 

The committee gave her enough money to see her through for the presetn and advised her to get a job where her nerves wouldn't be strained.
