Miss Jessie Leitch

Bristol Times and Mirror

Miss Jessie Leitch, of London, a second class passenger came ashore with the six-months infant of her cousin, the Rev. John Harper, of London, who was drowned. Mr. Harper handed the child to her, kissed the little one goodbye, and remained to perish. Miss Leitch wrapped the child in her own clothing, and stoically endured the cold until help came.
