Deep Sea Mail
I, with the rest of my shipmates, must take exception to paragraph six of J. A. Stiver's letter in the March 5 issue entitled ''Deep Sea Mail."
At the time I read the article 1 was on the President Lincoln. In the fo'c'sle there were men whose total international date line crossings came to well over 260. most of them on mail-carrying ships. No one of us had ever heard of "slowing up'' for the date line, let alone the taking on of mail.
