1.  2 June [1877?]
Dated by comparison with writing and butterfly signature on other menus (see #06883).

2.  Potage
The menu, written in French, comprised shellfish soup, turbot, casserole of pigeons, cold lamb, asparagus, salad, and coffee. This is a simple meal, probably not for guests, using up the previous day's left-overs (see #06921).
