Hull Magistrate Reported Safe

Scarborough Mercury

Mother Staying at Scarborough

Mr. Algernon H. Barkworth, J.P., of Tranby House, Hessle, Hull, who was one of the first-class passengers on the Titanic, is a young man of independent means, and had booked a passage on the Titanic in preference to other vessels, largely because he was interested to see what she was like. He had intended staying in America for a month.

A brief telegram transmitted by wireless was received on Monday afternoon by Mrs. Barkworth, his mother, who is staying at Scarborough. It contained the word ''Safe'', but the relatives are still anxious to know definitely that the message was despatched after the Titanic sank.
