3 -if is i il Q
Now that you Hnally have your pictorial log, it is my sincere hope that you are
pleased with the results. You will, no doubt, find many things missing that you
would like to have had included, but please bear in mind the many decisions that l
have had to make and the obstacles that confronted me before l left the Ship and since.
For instance, I would like to have included Awards and Citations of our Squadron,
but it was utterly impractical to do so in view of the fact that they left the Ship
before their list was complete and were disbanded shortly thereafter.
Rest assured that this book has received my constant attention ever since leaving
the Ship. The delay in publication has been due to no fault of mine or the pub-
lishersg it was caused by the general labor situation, primarily because the Chicago
area, where our engravings and covers were made, went on a 2-1 hour work week
during the coal strike. lf you are glad to have your book, think how happy l am
to finally have it behind me.
Edwards 81 Broughton Company, our publishers. feel that we have a good book.
and that some of you may want additional copies. Consequently, they have gambled
on printing approximately 100 copies over and above our contract, and if you are
interested you may order extra copies from them at 55.00 each. sending check or
Money Order to Edwards 81 Broughton Company. Raleigh, N. C.. and they will
Hll the orders as long as they last. They will, of course. return checks after the
supply is exhausted unless the orders justify another run of books.
Your books have come to you insurecl without return receipt slip for the reason
that it would be very difficult for me to file over l.000 postal receipts. Please.
therefore, cooperate with me by signing and mailing the enclosed postal card so that
I will know you have your books.
Now, one last shot at you guys! If our Country should engage in another war
in our generation. there is nothing l would like better than for the entire personnel
of the LUNGA POINT and VC 35 to put the l,i7NC,-X POINT back into commission.
because you are the grandest bunch in the world.
