The Hudson River steamer for which Stanton was preparing by visiting the Alhambra was the Washington Irving, not the Knickerbocker. The boat was, indeed, built in 1912 and featured a writing room whose decoration was based on the Alhambra. The room was designed by Louis O. Keil; Stanton was to paint appropriate paintings to decorate the space as well as other areas of the vessel.
