I know that my personal conduct has been made the subject of a lot of unfavorable comment, and I court the fullest inquiry at the hands of your committee or any one else who has the right to ask such questions.  So far as the Carpathia is concerned, when I got aboard that vessel I was taken to the saloon and a steward wanted me to eat some soup, but I could not.  He then led me to a room and made me comfortable.  The room was never locked and was frequently entered. The doctor kept his medicines there and little Jack Thayer was in the same room several times.---Ismay's statement before the Senate committee.

Chicago Examiner, Wednesday, May 1, 1912, p. 6, c. 3
