A STRANGE COINCIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
A STRANGE COINCIDENCE. A curious incident occurred 36 hours after leaving Southampton. A large bird perched itself on the sum mit of the main mast, a sailor went up and caught it and brought it down, and it proved to be a brown owl! I am superstitious about owls, and was v ry depressed, especially as I had left my favorite sister ill. The sailors tied a string around the poor, dazed creature's leg and were rather ill treating it, so 1 offered them two shil lings for the bird, which' they accept ed, and I then let it out of my port hole. The captain told me that they often caught even smaller birds on the mast, especially when the wind was blowing off the land. On arriv ing at Lisbon we received a telegram to say that 36 hours after my depar ture, my sister had passed away, and also Lady Macdoneli, the wife of Gen eral Sir A. Macdoneli, my brother-in law—it was a strange coincidence!— "Reminiscences of a Diplomatic Life," by Lady Macdoneli.
