1st class menu saved by Miss Elise Lurette
Miss Elise Lurette, a French passenger who was Mrs Spencer's travelling companion (more than 'maid'), used to lose her way on the Titanic. She did not speak English and she had crossed her cabin on a plan she showed to other passengers when she did not find her way. On April 12, she scratched two luncheon items on her menu - they certainly were not available after all: 'Omer Pacha Egg' and 'Welsh Rabbit'. She saved this menu from the sinking.
