Christmas Menu 1931.
'It's Christmastide. Let's clean the slate
Of every old-year grudge or hate.
Let's pin a sprightly sprig of holly
Upon dull care and melancholy.
Let's reach out friendly hands and grip
Each other in Warm comradeship.'
U.S.S. Rochester, Balboa, Canal Zone, Captain L.P. Treadwell, U.S. Navy, Commanding.
