USS CHATTANOOGA CL-18

Sailor:

Herbert(?) Black

Kermit Cain

Great Great Grand Nephew

Just ran across the Memorial Day Menu of the USS
Chattanooga, anchored in Yokohama, Japan on May 30th, 1909. On the back
is written 'This is my bill a fare, I will send it to your so you will
know I have plenty to eat. your kid, H.E. Black 29th May.'

I believe that H.E. Black was my great grandmother's brother. The menu
reads:

Sweet Pickles
Queen Olives
Roast Turkey
Giblet Dressing
Cranberry Sauce
Mashed Potatoes
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Sugar Corn
Sugar Cured Ham
Apple Pies
Chocolate Layer Cake
Plain Cake
Apples
Bananas
Cigars
Coffee
Lemonade
