This sheet music is for the song “I'll See You in My Dreams.” Gus Kahn wrote the lyrics to the song and Isham Jones composed the music. Leo Feist, Inc. of New York City published this sheet music in 1924. The cove has an illustration of a flapper-style girl gazing coquettishly at the viewer. There is an inset photograph of Ralph Williams in the lower left, who would have featured the song in his performances.
