Three early Titanic Marconigrams, or radio telegrams. All three were sent on April 15, 1912, the date of the Titanic's sinking. Of these, the earliest was sent at 7:45 am from the rescue ship Olympic. It states: "Since midnight, when her position was 41.46 N 50.14W have been unable to communicate. We are now 310 miles from her. Will inform at once if hear anything".
A two-page manuscript handwritten on White Star Lines stationery. The author is John Edward Simpson, who didn't survive the disaster. Simpson was hired on April 6, 1912, as an assistant surgeon on the Titanic. He treated second and third-class passengers. Penned to Simpson's mother, the note reads: "I am very well and am gradually getting settled in my new cabin, which is larger than my last." His letter was penned aboard Titanic on April 11 - four days before the sinking.
