"Of Course, Ladies First," Said Mr. Harris, and Stayed on Board
George Brayton, an asphalt manufacturer of Los Angeles, who was on the Titanic, last night gave an account of the parting of Henry B. Harris and his wife. He said:
"Mr. and Mrs. Harris approached the lifeboats arm in arm. As they were about to enter them, an officer said: "'Ladies first, please!'
"Mr. Harris bowed and smiled, saying: "'Of course, certainly, ladies first.'
"After bidding his wife farewell, Mr. Harris mingled with the other passengers who remained on board."
