Mrs. Lightoller is a native of Australia,and, with her husband, have been living at Netley since the Companycame to Southampton. Mrs. Lightoller said that she had endeavoured tosee the Mayor of Southampton, to ask what she might do to help incollecting at Netley, as she thought she ought to do everything in herpower now she herself was relieved from anxiety. In conclusion, Mrs.Lightoller said she had been besieged with telegrams of inquiry andcongratulations, and wished to thank those who had sent, for she couldnot possibly reply to so many.
