In regard to hls assoclatlon with the Jamestown Exposltlon in 1907, the ad? mlral exprosses hlmself as follows: "Day after day, weok after week and month after month, the shlps of the Atlantic fleet swung at their anchors In Hampton Boads, whlle ofllcers and men devoted thelr tlme and money to make a success of the Jamestown Ex? posltlon, as they were ordered to do.
