The relatives of Mrs. Margaret Swift, the widow of Fred Joel Swift, who lives at 171 Arlington avenue, are expecting momentarily to hear from her. Their hopes are based on the assurances given them at the offices of the White Star Line.
Mrs. Swift, it will be remembered, was the victim of a gentleman burglar who later returned stolen property to her house. She is Superintendent of Sunday School of Arlington Avenue Presbyterian Church and is a well known social figure in the Arlington section.
Mrs. Swift closed her house on January 20, and in company with a woman physician, Dr. Laeder, of Manhattan, left for Bermuda. After a two weeks stay there she returned to New York from which point she sailed to Europe. They toured the Continent and sailed on the Titanic last week. At her home this morning, Miss Louise Smith, the caretaker was preparing the house for the arrival of its owner. She said she had been instructed by Mrs. Ford, of 3 East Sixty-first street, Manhattan, a sister of Mrs. Swift, to go right on with her work and she expected Mrs. Swift to be in Manhattan by Saturday.
