SPECIAL INFORMATION FOR WESTBOUND PASSENGERS.

BAGGAGE.—Westbound passengers proceeding from London to Southampton by special trains will pay to The Southern Railway at Waterloo Station, London, any ocean excess baggage charges due.

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.

Passengers are specially requested to claim their baggage before leaving the Customs Baggage Room, otherwise considerable delay and extra charge for carriage will be incurred in forwarding to destination any baggage not accompanying passengers on the Railway.

BAGGAGE BY SPECIAL TRAINS.—Passengers can arrange with The Southern Railway, Waterloo Station, for their baggage to be collected and conveyed to Waterloo Station on a payment of one shilling per package.

REFRESHMENT FACILITIES ON SPECIAL BOAT TRAINS—LONDON TO SOUTHAMPTON.—Arrangements have been made with The Southern Railway for early Saloon trains run from Waterloo to Southampton in connection with Cunard sailings to have breakfast cars attached for the convenience of Saloon passengers. Any passengers wishing to reserve seats in this car should advise either of the Cunard Company's London Offices.
