Trask, lt waa many days beforo 1 waa
able to talk wlth iny counsel and au.
vlscrs. 'When I huw them they urged
upon me my duty to take action
against the New York Central RaUiroad
for tho unspeakablo crimlnai careless
nt*BS which led to the fatal tragedy ol
December 31, 13u5.
"Such action 1 positively refused to
consider. I made only one request.
namely, that I might never again hear
ti:.- name of the New Vork Central
ltallroad spoken ln my presenco. My
advlsers, however, polnted out to m?
that thls was Impoaslble. They sald
that I owed a duty to tho communlty,
a grave responsibility to the publlc
Thls urKtirnent was further urged hy
several other able advlsers, who plead
cd that I must sacritlco my feellngs at
wnatever cost of paln for tho protec?

over, my rounsel told me that I haj
no cholce in the matter; that, a;
