PEARS, SOAPMAKER, SAFE

Chicago Daily Journal

A wireless dispatch received today by the firm of Pears, soap makers, and timed 1:20 yesterday, said merely "All well."  It was unsigned but was believed to be from Thomas Pears, who with his wife was among the Titanic's passengers.

It came via the liner Potsdam, but there ws no indication as to where it was originally sent from.

It may have been dispatched before the Titanic sank, but, nevertheless, it gave welcome relief to the family, who believe that Mr. Pears is aboard one of the steamers which reached the scene of the disaster yesterday.
