Transcript = THE BLUE BON ET ------------ 3 Next in line of the high commands was the Commander- in- Chief, U. S. Fleet. He comments 011 the Houston during her duty as relief flag­ship during the period of 19 September to 28 December, 1938: " During the subject period, the U. S. S. Houston met every requirement of fleet flagship to my complete satisfaction. Exacting demands and difficult adjustments were cheer­fully and efficiently executed." Over and above that very pleasing comment he added that the Houston was a " well- disciplined" ship. Three months later the President returned ~ board the Houston at Key West, Florida. During :::., 1 all- t:> o- shoi't two- week period, 18 February " 0 3 II- arch, 1939, he watched the Fleet Problem XX. Again he wrote a highly complimentary let­ter abput the ship, repeating the essnce of the fir t letter and adding that he noted and liked · · the smart appearance and performance of the o .. cerfi and crew." This cruise ended in Charles­t.: u with the departure of the President. Five day" later the ship left Charleston with t:, e Sc: retary of the avy aboard. The Secreta1'; y; a: : l:) O~ rd trom 11 March to 23 March, during . I · hieh time he recuperated from the wear and tear of his official duties. About a week after ~ isembarking he wrote a letter to the ship ex­p. · essing to " all aboard my appreciation of all tlut '.,: 13 dane to make my stay an interesting, comfortable and enjoyable one. The efficiency, booJ oruer anJ dLciplme readily apparent in the ship, and the seamanlike manner in which she ,,, as handled, reflect credit on the officers and men. Despite the fact that for the last year the ship has never known just what she was going to do next, she is more than thankful to have been chosen for these special duties. What uncertain­ties of scheJule have been uffered are more than recompensed by the gratifying kno\ ' ledge that she has completed those duties entirely to the satisfaction of those primarily concerned. Houston Favo!"' t~ of H: gh Co•.. mand During the : ear 1938- 1939, the Houston has had aboard the high command of the 1 avy. From 16 July, 1938, to 9 August, 1939, the Hou­ston carried the Commande1'- in- Chief, U. S. avy on his recreational cruise. Thus started the 45,000 miles that the Houston has made during the July, 1938, to July, 1939, period. After the completion of the cruise, the President stated in a , etter to the Secretary of the Navy that he was well pleas­ed with the ship as she started on the cruise. He had no complaint about his personal comfort. And he considered the ship and crew smart in " appearance and performance." The President sums up his letter with the conclusion that noth­ing was left undone to assure the success of the mission.
