Tonight, by courtesy of the Cunard Company, we invite you to spend an evening on the S.S. Samaria.
Imagine that the ship is on her return voyage from New York, nearing the English Coast. In the First Class Lounge the last night at sea is being celebrated by a Concert—the ORCHESTRA will play, MAIRE OWEN and GEORGE JEFFCOCK will sing songs of the sea, and SYDNEY MAHER will give us two groups of rollicking chanties.
And up on the bridge the Captain and Officers of the Watch see one by one the familiar lights flash into view as the good ship makes the Channel.
At 10 o'clock we shall bid farewell to our fellow-passengers and reach London in time for the WEATHER FORECAST and NEWS, to spend the rest of the evening there.
