Original text on model:
"Suggested for Mr. Slocum but not approved. About 1918 - 1/8" per foot" (Source: Original handwritten annotation on model. Undated.)

Model identification:
"Newly identified model. Compare with model no. 1437 and with plans for a "162 ft. Steam Yacht for Thomas W. Slocum" dated August 27, 1919. This model's size and smaller scale (1:96) suggests it to be a preliminary model (model 1437 is believed to be 1:48)." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. February 2009.)
