Robert was Titanic victim too

I am writing in response to your article on the Titanic, in particular with respect to Robert Hitchens.

My grandmother and Robert were cousins. My great-grandfather and Robert’s father Phillip were brothers.

Where as Phillip married Rebecca, Nicholas married by great-grandmother Betsy Tweedy.

I can remember my grandma telling how Robert was destroyed by the lies that were told about him.

Sadly many people lost their lives that night but Robert was also a victim.
