We came over alone and nothing hap happened

coaling about ten o'clock.
Now to show you the condition of
the crew, we stood watch and watch,
that is, four hours on and four hours
off, so you see we were pretty tired
out, but duty called and we dug in.
We dig in as well as the army and by
the way the boys make the coal fly
I believe that we can beat the army
at its own game. Now these British
colliers (commonly known as ash
lighters) are nothing but four boomed
tramp steamers and are very incon inconvenient,
venient, inconvenient, especially for high ships like
ours. We were forced to sro slow and
were coaling for about 36 hours and
i a more miserable time nobody ever
had. But as the savins: is. there is
no rest. foj the wicked, and from the
rest we got for the next week yoi
would have thought we were the
devil's brothers. We started right in
after coaling cleaning up. This is the
hardest nart of coaling. We scrub
bed and scraped for about a day and
a half and got the worst of the dirt
off, when we got orders to get under
way and proceed down here.
We joined the fleet on the 30th of
July and a grander sight I never saw.

they' haven't the range we have, even
tho they have us a little on speed.
Britain has three classes of ships
that we haven't. They are battle
cruisers, light cruisers and aeroplane
ships. The Renown and Repulse (the
British evidently got their names
from the billboards) are their best
battle cruisers, being about 850 feet
long and with a speed of 35 knots,
but they have to sacrifice armor and
armament for speed.
When we got down here we were
told that we would be inspected in a
week by Admiral Rodman, -who has
charge of this squadron, and he is
very particular about cleanliness, so
we began to "crumb up," as the ex expression

scrubbed until you wouldn't, know the
