P. 101
13162. Would it be your business to look after some of the ladies in your part of the ship? - Certainly. 13163. And did you go to look after them? - They had already gone out of their rooms. 13164. By the time you got up you found they were all up? - Yes. 13165. Where did you go after you got up? - Up to B deck. 13166. Did you see any of your stewardesses about? - Yes, quite a number. 13167. Were the stewardesses, as far as you could see, all doing their duty? - Yes; they had blankets and ciderdowns to put round people. 13168. And as a class they were doing all they were being told to do were they? - Yes. 13169. Looking after the lady passengers? - Yes. 13170. You went to B deck; did you remain on B deck or did you go elsewhere? - I went down to the cabin again. 13171. To your cabin? - Yes. 13172. I do not want to go into this in great detail. You went to your own cabin and then later on did you go up? - Yes. 13173. To which deck? - To A deck. 13174. Were you after a time helped into No. 16 boat? - Yes. 13175. And you were ultimately taken on board the “Carpathia”? - Yes. Examined by Mr. SCANLAN. 13176. Have you been for a considerable time a stewardess? - Yes. 13177. Is it the practice on liners to give each stewardess a boat station? - Yes. 13178. And at some time on the voyage are the stewardesses as well as the other hands called to their stations? - Only on sailing days; there is then a boat muster. 13179. But you had not that on the “Titanic”? - On the sailing day we all mustered in the companion to pass the doctor. 13180. You mean the day you left Southampton? - Yes. 13181. But were you told then what your boat station was? - No, we were supposed to look for it ourselves on the list. 13182. But you had not been told the station you would take on the boat? - No. 13183. After the collision you and all the other stewardesses were doing their duty in helping the people as much as possible? - Yes. Examined by Mr. HARBINSON. 13184. Do you know if after the collision any general alarm was sounded on the “Titanic”? - I do not know. Examined by Sir ROBERT FINLAY. 13185. Before your boat put off did you hear the question asked whether there were any more women and children? - Yes, and there were no more to be seen when we went off. (The Witness withdrew.) The Solicitor-General: We have this man Wheat here now.
