To the Publisher:

I was christened by Father John Washington at St. Stephen’s Church in May of 1939. As you are well aware, he was one of the four chaplains who gave their life jackets to others. They perished as the ship, Dorchester, sunk due to German torpedo in February 1943. I feel blessed and honored to have been christened by this good man who both lived and died his faith.
