In Years Past

August 12, 2014

In 1914, Mrs. Fred Pollard of East Second Street, Jamestown, and her daughter, who were the only Jamestown passengers aboard the British liner Cedric, which was forced the past week to take refuge in Halifax Harbor instead of making the direct trip to New York City, reached home this day, after a delay of over a week. Pollard was wearied and worn by her journey of 12 days on the water and her night trip home. She arrived here at 4 o'clock in the morning. "I am glad to be home," she said, and her words were heartily echoed by her 11-year-old daughter who made the trip with her. "When we left England," said Pollard, "there was no news of war, although the impression was general that the trouble was serious and might result in international difficulty."
