A letter from a sailor boy In Chile, Vern Rusher, a former reisdent of South Bay: 1 am still down south; will ba in Chile the 10th: will cross the equator tomorrow some time. That leaves us about 1.000 miles from where we are going. The port is Arnes, or something like that. Have had good weather so far but, by gosh, this is the hottest November I ever spent. It sure is hot down here. I haven't seen land for a week and don't expect to for two or three days yet. I see by the map there are some islands on the equator and our course goes right through between them, so may see some land tomorrow. We left Seattle Sunday, October 20; got to San Pedro October 26; left there the 26th, and have gone some distance since. This is more of a diary than a letter, so you can trace our journey on your map. Some of the petty officers say we will be back to New York by Decem ber 25, or maybe before. I hope so, for I don't like the weather here —it is too darn hot. We have had lots of company in the line of fish. I have seen whales, porpoises, flying fish and pretty near everything, even to a big turtle about four or five feet in diameter, and some mighty funny looking birds, too. November 6. We crossed the bis; line today and were initiated into th'i Ancient Order of the Deep by Old Man Neptune (Was shaved with dough and then given a bath in a tank of water.) Will get a certifi cate for crossing the line. November 9. Just three weeks since we left Port Townsend. Have been going all the time except two days while we were at San Pedro. Have been gone from there two weks. We are off the coast of Peru, about three or four hundred miles and can't even see the Andes moun tains. Believe me there will be a hot time in that little old Chilean port when we get there. We are nine degrees below the equator now and the weather is like Bpring in Washington. We sleep out on deck in our hammocks and need only one blanket. It wasn't as hot when we crossed the equator as it was north of it along the Mexican and Central American coast. I will finish when we get to port so you will know we got there. November 15. Well, we are In port, about 15 miles below Antifo gasta—got in last night at 9 o'clock.
