Senator Guggenheim said: "I have not heard a word from my brother. I have asked our New York office to send me anything they learn, but I have not heard from them and it is apparent they can find out nothing.
My brother was on the Titanic. He was not accompanied by any other members of his family. He went abroad on a business trip and was returning. He had been in London and Paris, where he has offices."
Senator Guggenheim pointed to the reports that some other passengers than the women and children had been picked up by other vessels than the Carpathia as affording some ground for hope.
