Message from the Navy Mail Clerk

The message reads:
"Mr. Parker,
In answer to your question: Pres. Roosevelt will embark at Eastport, Me., on 30 June 1933 for a short inspection cruise of 3 or 4 days.
He will disembark at the mouth of the Potomac on 3 July. The Bernadou [DD-153] and Ellis [DD-154] will convoy this ship. You may
send me as many covers as you like for any occasion only write in pencil on each cover what you want. I don't use anything but location
in the killer bars. I was hoping someone would send me a suggestion for a special cachet on the Presidential cruise but no one has
offered any. If I can think of something I'll have a special cachet made on the Linotype."
[signed on front] L. Iverson, N.M.C.
