    (There appears to be no discussion of these people other than in the Biography section). Allegedly a letter written by Amelia Icard was recently purchased and the owner attempted to translate the 10 page letter from French to English. According to the letter Amelia was accompanying Mrs. Stone on a trip around the world. She appears to describe a few of the well known stories during the sinking. Does anyone know of the providence of this letter? Link to March 26, 2014 Huffington post... Read full post
