Scope and Contents

"...After dinner I helped to scrape down the deck and chip the old paint off of the starboard 'main deck' and back on the 'fantail'. Then we got that painted with the yellow [chromicide] paint after securing from that at four p.m. We gave the ship a clean sweep-down 'fore and aft'. My back got right red as I had my shirt off while I was working topside...."
