Lot of (3) Titanic Disaster Marconi Messages #23-25, Relating to Bruce Ismay. A group of three Marconi messages from the R.M.S. Olympic radio log book, 3 pp, oblong 8vo, April 15, 1912, being communications between the Commander of the R.M.S. Carpathia and the Commander of the R.M.S. Olympic, discussing whether or not the R.M.S. Olympic (the Titanic's sister ship) should pass in view of and aid the R.M.S. Carpathia, each framed. These three documents record the momentwhen the authorities decide whether or not to let the Olympic participate in the transport of survivors. The earliest message reports on the condition of Bruce Ismay, the White Star Line's managing director who survived the sinking: "To:COMMANDER OLYMPIC. RECEIVED 3.18 PM N.Y.T. / MR. BRUCE ISMAY IS UNDER AN OPIATE. / ROSTRON." The next message, sent by Rostron just two minutes later, reads: "To: COMMANDER O L Y M P I C RECEIVED 3.20 pm NYT / DO YOU THINK IT ADVISABLETITANIC'S PASSENGERS SEE OLYMPIC. / PERSONALLY I SAY NOT. \ ROSTRON." Two minutes later, Rostron added: "To: COMMANDER OLYMPIC RECEIVED 3.22 pm NYT / MR. ISMAY ORDERS OLYMPIC NOT TO BE SEEN BY CARPATHIA. / NO TRANSFER TO TAKE PLACE. ROSTRON."
