Little Hope Is Entertained For Recovery of Theatrical Promoter
Two telegrams were received in Washington last night confirming previous reports that Mrs. Henry B. Harris, who was Miss Rene Wallack, [sic] was saved from the wreck of the Titanic.

Robert Goodman, manager for Mr. Harris of Frank McIntyre's tour, received word from the Harris offices in New York that Mrs. Harris was saved. The message contained no word regarding Mr. Harris, and it is presumed that he is lost.

The other telegram, a relayed wireless message received by M. E. Jaconson, a cousin of Mrs. Harris, announces her safety, but indicates positively that Mr. Harris is not on the Carpathia. It reads:

"Am safe. Praying that Harry will be picked up by another steamer. Arriving Carpathia.


It is supposed that the message to Robert Goodman from New York was based on information sent Mr. Harris' offices by his wife.
