MR. CARBINES INTERRED

St. Ives Times & Express

Through the courtesy of Mr. Carbines — brother of the late Mr. William Carbines, a passenger on the "Titanic" and who has only just arrived in St. Ives from America — we are able to give some information from a letter which Mr. William Cogar, local agent, received early this week from the White Star Lone Company's passenger department.
The Letter states:— "In case you have not yet been advised we are now writing to inform you that a body, which has been identified as Mr. William Carbines, has been picked up by the steamer sent out for that purpose, and conveyed to Halifax. It has been arranged for the bodies, it has been possible to bring to shore by the steamer to Halifax, to be buried in single graves with head stone bearing the name of deceased, at the Company's own expense." The letter concluded with an expression of the Company's most sincere sympathy to the relatives in their great sorrow.
Mr. Carbines and family of Nanjivey wish through the medium of the "St. Ives Times" to express their deep gratitude to the officials of the White Star Line Company for their generosity; and also wish to thank their local friends for many tokens of sympathy in the great loss they have sustained.
