News of Isidor Straus’ Tragic End Kept From Nathan Straus.

Nathan Straus. Jr. Has received a cablegram from his mother in Rome, saying that news of the death of Isidor Straus has been kept from his brother, Nathan Straus Sr. who is recuperating in Italy after a recent illness.

According to the cablegram, Mr Straus knows of the Titanic’s sinking, but believes that his brother was among the survivors. News of his brother’s death has been withheld, the message says, upon orders of his physician.
