Baggage.—Passengers are recommended to insure their Baggage, as the Company’s liability is strictly limited in accordance with Contract Ticket. All enquiries regarding Baggage on board ship should be addressed to the Baggage Master.

Valuables.—The Company is not responsible for theft if valuables or money are kept in the Staterooms. The same should be placed in charge of the Purser for deposit in his safe, and a receipt will be given on the Company's form. As no charge is made for carriage the Company cannot accept any responsibility for loss or damage, however arising, but passengers can protect themselves by insurance.

Passengers should obtain a receipt on the Company's form for any additional Passage Money or Freight paid on board.

Notice.—Passengers are informed that Professional Gamblers are reported as frequently crossing on Atlantic Steamers and are warned to take precautions accordingly.

Exchange of Money.—Owing to fluctuations it is not possible to make a fixed Rate of Exchange.

The Surgeon is authorized to make customary charges, subject to the approval of the Commander, for treating any passengers at their request for any illness not originating on board the ship. In the case of sickness contracted on board no charge will be made and medicine will be provided free.

Dogs.—Passengers are notified that dogs cannot be landed in Great Britain unless a license has previously been procured from the Board of Agriculture, London. Forms of license must be obtained by direct application to the Department before the dog is taken on board.

Chairs and Rugs may be hired at a Cost of 4/- (or $1) each on application to the Deck Steward.

Each Rug is contained in a sealed cardboard box, and bears a serial number worked into the material so that passengers will have no difficulty in identifying their rugs. At the end of each voyage, the rugs which have been in use, are sent to the store and thoroughly cleaned, before being re-issued.

Arrivals at New York.—Passengers are landed at the Company's Piers, 53 to 56, North River, Foot of West 14th Street, where railway tickets can be purchased, and baggage checked to any part of the United States and Canada. After landing, passengers should enquire at the desk on the wharf for letters and telegrams.

When any of the Company’s steamers arrive at the Pier after 8:00 pm, passengers have the option of remaining on board overnight and landing after Breakfast the following morning.

In the event, however, of their remaining on board, they will be landed after breakfast the following morning, either at the stage or in dock as circumstances may make desirable.

In the same way when the vessel reaches the river but does not come alongside the Stage, to prevent inconvenience and to meet emergencies, any passengers desirous of disembarking will, on arrival of the steamer, be landed, with hand baggage only, by tender.

European Hostilities —During present Hostilities passengers of foreign nationality are, under the Aliens Act, only permitted to land at certain approved ports, of which Liverpool is one, but Queenstown and Fishguard are excluded, and passengers may be subjected to slight delay on arrival at Liverpool.
