October 21, 1942.
P.J. OíNeill, Esq.,
As requested in your telegram of October 20th, I am forwarding herewith photographs of both Mrs. Skinner and her two children, lost in the sinking of the Caribou.
As a further means of identification I have learned that Mrs. Skinner at the time of the tragedy was in all probability dressed in a Navy Blue Dress and a black hat. She had a pendant around her neck, and wore two rings, a wedding one and an engagement one. She also had a wrist watch on at the time.
When you are through with these photographs I would appreciate it if you would see to it that they are returned.
The relatives of the victims have been notified of the undertakers instructions regarding the burial.
