This publication only has fares for the S.S. Republic and the S.S. America, which in the fleet of this line were termed Cabin Steamers thus the "Cabin Rates."

It does not have sailing schedules for either ship. Both of these ships would have sailed from Hoboken. Taxi Rates to Hoboken from New York and other points are on page 8. "How to Reach Our Piers From New York" on page 10 includes directions using the ferry service from New York to Lackawanna Terminal or the Hudson Tubes (Hudson & Manhattan Railroad.)

Notably the Leviathan was now part of the fleet and also worth noting, it was the only ship in the fleet that did not run to Bremen, Germany. Built as the S.S. Vaterland for the Hamburg American Line which used Hoboken has its American home port. The ship was interned in Hoboken shortly after the start of World War I in Europe and confiscated in 1917 when the U.S. entered the war. It was then operated as the U.S.S. Leviathan (U.S. Army Transport Service) from the Port of Embarkation, Hoboken, 1917-1919. Decommissioned as the Leviathan in October 1919, it became the S.S. Leviathan under the U.S. Shipping Board and United States Lines.
