c/o NAVIGAZIONE GENERALE Italiana, Genoa (or Naples, according to the port of embarkation).

Mail so addressed will be delivered to Passengers when applying at the respective office before sailing or on board ship.

This applies to ordinary mail only. Registered, insured mail and packages cannot, according to the Italian postal regulations, be delivered but to the addressees. Passengers expecting such mail or packages should therefore make inquiries at the proper postal office at the port of embarkation before going on board.

Mail addressed to incoming Passengers is sent on board ship at Quarantine and is delivered through the Information Office. Mail received after the steamer's arrival in New York is forwarded to the address furnished by the Passengers on the blanks supplied on board. Arrivals at Naples:—The Company's steamers generally reach Naples at about 7 A. M. and Passengers are landed at the Naples dock. Before landing Passengers must show their passports to the Government Officials who board the steamer.

Passengers' baggage is taken ashore to the Customs Baggage Room by porters at Passengers' expense. The tariff for such service is 3.00 Lires for each hand baggage and 5.00 Lires for each trunk. Hotel representatives board the ship and assist the Passengers in clearing the baggage through the Customs and attend to the forwarding of such baggage from the Customs room to the Hotel. Passengers going direct to the Railroad Station will find taxicabs in attendance.

tickets for which can be purchased at the Tourist Office on board.

Arrivals at Genoa:—Steamers are generally due to arrive at about 10 A. M. and Passengers land at the Genoa dock. Before landing Passengers must show their passports to the Government Officials who board the steamer. Passengers baggage is taken ashore at Passengers' expense and payment to the porters for such service is made by coupons which are sold at the Information Office at the rate of 3.00 Lires for each hand baggage and 5.00 Lires for each trunk. This tariff applies only for the transportation of the baggage from on board ship to the Customs Room.

Arrivals at Palermo:—Passengers and baggage are taken ashore on tenders at Company's expense.

Customs Regulations in Italy:--The Customs Inspection is made in the Custom Baggage Room in the Passengers' presence. No written declaration is required but the Passengers' attention is called to the fact that tobacco, cigars and cigarettes are subject to duty in Italy and to the necessity of declaring the smallest quantities to the Customs Authorities.

Return Accommodations:—For the convenience of those Passengers who may be traveling from Europe to the United States or from the United States to Europe, and who have not yet made the necessary arrangements, the Ship's Tourist Office will be pleased to radio to Genoa or to New York for any accommodation required.

Westbound Passage:—Passengers holding round trip tickets or orders for westbound passage must apply—not later than the day prior to sailing—at the Company's Office at the port of embarkation in order to exchange their prepaid order or return section for the regular embarkation ticket. Passengers may effect such change by mail, if so desired, at any of the following Company's offices: Genoa, Naples, Turin, Milan, Florence, Rome, Paris, Zurich, Munich, Berlin, Stuttgart and Vienna.

Arrivals at New York:—Passengers are landed at the Company's Piers 96 and 97, foot of West 56th and 57th Streets. When any of the Company's steamers arrive at the Pier after 8 P. M., Passengers have the option of remaining on board over night and landing after breakfast the following morning.

Delivery of Baggage in New York:—Passengers are specially requested to claim their baggage before leaving the Custom's Baggage Room on the Pier, as otherwise considerable delay and extra charge for carriage will be incurred in forwarding to destination any baggage not accompanying Passengers on the Railway.

Forwarding of Passengers:—For the convenience of all Passengers disembarking at our piers in New York, who are destined to interior points, the Railroad Lines out of New York, as well as Steamship Lines for Boston, have representatives on the wharf to meet Passengers and arrange to issue railroad tickets to all points in the United States, Canada and Mexico, as well as tickets to Boston, via steamer. These representatives will also arrange to check baggage from our piers through to destination, relieving Passengers of the annoyance of having to purchase their tickets at the depot or re-check their baggage. Baggage transfer charges from our piers to rail depots or steamship dock must be paid by Passengers.

Public Telephones:—Booths will be found on the New York Piers.

Taxicabs:—Same can be hired at the Company's Piers in New York.

Professional Gamblers:—Passengers are informed that professional gamblers are reported as frequently crossing on Mediterranean steamers and are warned to take precautions accordingly.

Recovery of U. S. Head Tax:—This Tax can be recovered by Passengers, if same has been paid, provided they inform the U. S. Immigration Inspector on arrival at New York of their intention to leave the United States within sixty days (the time prescribed by U. S. Law) and obtain from him Transit Certificate Form 514.

It is also necessary for Transit Certificate Form 514 to be handed to the transportation company when completed, in time to allow same to be placed before the Immigration Authorities in Washington within 120 days of passenger's arrival in the United States. Unless this regulation is complied with, the fax cannot he recovered.
