6. 2 telegrams sent to the SS Birma by the SS Titanic as she sank;
7. Correspondence from the WSL to the Board of Trade;
8. "The Titanic Crime" editorial in NY Evening journal;
9. The response of the union leader;
10. The politician's response to the President of the Board of Trade;
11. Sample of returns of passengers drowned - First, Second and Third class; (Thomas Andrews included);
12. Alfred Omont's account of his escape from the Titanic;
13. Digest of Testimony at a hearing;
