Baltimore Girl In Danger Zone
Miss Dorothy Roberts Saw Eruption Of Vesuvius. Was at Naples .....
Mrs. Rosamond Roberts, 503 Hamilton Terrace, has received a letter from her daughter, Miss Dorothy Roberts, now traveling in Italy, describing the recent eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Miss Roberts and a company of young ladies from Baltimore have been touring Europe since last October. According to the letter, which was written from Rome, they were at Naples on the day of the eruption.
In the party are Miss Mary Willis, daughter of Police Commissioner Willis; Miss Eda Buddeke, of Bryn Mawr, and Miss Elizabeth Atkluson, of Richmond, Va. The party are now in Spain, and will leave Gibraltar next Monday for New York. The letter follows:
Rome, April 9, 1906
My Dear Mother: I can see your surprise when you receive this letter from Rome, after getting one from Naples. To express it in a few words, we fled from the eruption of Vesuvius. My last letter told you the alarming condition of affairs in the vicinity of the volcano. The huge volumes of thick black smoke grew worse every moment, and hung over the city like a great pall, while the fall of ashes and black sand made everything awful to behold. Night before last we were awakened about 1 A. M. by a loud explosion, closely followed by another more terrifying that shook the hotel. Everything was quiet for a few moments, when rumblings like heavy thunder were heard at intervals until morning, when it became quiet. In the morning we attended church, where prayers were offered to the people of Casa, a small village near Pompeii.
We asked more in detail after the service, and learned that the town had been destroyed, but were assured that Naples was in no danger; and of course, we were much relieved.
Towards evening, when it grew dark, we looked out and saw, to our horror, that the places where the smoke had been thickest were like fire, as if the flames would burst forth every moment. We went to the roof of the hotel with the porter, but upon opening the door found the air so stifling with sulphur that we could not breathe. We were all very much alarmed, but upon being assured that the city was in no danger we returned, but could not sleep. Crashes like thunder were heard all the time, and right over the mountain terrific lightning flashes were seen every moment.
At 4 A. M. our chaperone told us to pack our trunks; that we must leave at once. Never while I live can I forget today. We were positively ill from fright. The employes of the hotel while trying to attend their duties were so terrified they scarcely knew what they were doing.
The ride to the station was one never to be forgotten. The ashes were being shoveled off the pavements like snow in our country. The people had their faces covered to protect them from the sand and ashes. What terrified us most was that inky cloud that hung down to the ground on the edge of the city and seemed to draw nearer every moment. Oh! that awful sight. It surely did strike terror to our hearts, and added to that were the rumblings that never ceased. When we reached the station, it was packed, the people fleeing from the towns to Naples seeking safety, many with all they possessed tied in a handkerchief.
Four towns were entirely destroyed last night. It seemed that everyone in Naples was hurrying away - it was perfect pandemonium. The managers of the road were directing matters, and told us that every engine they had was in service. You know how desperate it was to get places when I tell you that we gave $5 to the porter to get us seats. He took us to a fast train supposed to leave at 9:45. It was then sidetracked, and we we obliged to crawl in between other cars. The rush to get the trains off was fearful, but the officials did work hard.
The lava is rushing now 25 feet a minute. Two new craters have opened on the side of the mountain.
I could never express by writing all we passed through, but it will have to wait to tell you all about it when I see you. It certainly has been an experience I never want to have again.
We are safe at last, and thank the Good Lord for that.
Dorothy Roberts.

Note: The eruption of April 7, 1906 killed over 100 people and ejected the most lava ever recorded from a Vesuvian eruption. Italian authorities were preparing to hold the 1908 Summer Olympics when Mount Vesuvius erupted, devastating the city of Naples. Funds were diverted to the reconstruction of Naples, so a new location for the Olympics was required.
