Herriman Saturday

Thursday, April 16 1908 -- The Great White Fleet is in San Diego, and the sailors are coming ashore. Unfortunately for the gobs, San Diego has scheduled so much pomp and circumstance to herald the arrival that they'll end up standing around much of the day listening to speeches and watching their commanders being presented with gifts. All the sort of stuff they could most certainly do without when shore leave time is ticking away, and San Diegans, as attested to by Herriman, are just dying to show them more personal hospitalities.
