To the editor:
Great article by Harry Gratwick about U.S.S. Georgia — a Maine built battleship [WWF Feb. 2008]. I can imagine the difficulty maneuvering that heavy vessel down the bends in the Kennebec River below Bath.

The story of the Great White Fleet’s trip around the world is also fascinating, as well as the story of the exhausted captain who may have drunk too much at a reception in Tangier.

Great paper!
