Sheet of yellow card stock printed with Menu for dinner on Saturday July 12, 1919 for the U.S.S. Imperator at sea.

Laid up in Germany during WWI, it was used as a transport ship after the war ended. Mary Llewellyn Roane returned to the United States after her service in France aboard this ship. Due to a typographical error, Mary Llewellyn Roane was known as Jewel L. Roan during her WWI service.
