Mrs. A. O. Horverson

Another of the survivors who would have embraced death more happily
than safety was Mrs. A. O. Horverson, whose husband, who was connected
with the Peabody company, went down with the Titanic. With her husband,
Mrs. Horverson had been in Buenos Ayres on a three months' pleasure
and business trip, and, returning by way of England, had thoght it would
be great fun to help the Titanic make her maiden trip. "We were so happy,"
she cried with tears streaming down her face. "We had thought it such
a lark to come back home on the Titanic. "But now there is nothing,
nothing left. Oh, I can't stand it."
