S.S. Carleton Victory
July 1947


In June of 1947, when 19, I signed on board the SS Carleton Victory as an Ordinary Seaman in Baltimore. General cargo was loaded there and in Boston. Then intercoastal via the Panama Canal, with stops along the Pacific coast from San Diego to Seattle until the cargo was completely discharged. Lumber was then loaded at Columbia River ports and in Seattle for the return to the Atlantic coast. The lumber was the exclusive cargo and was stowed in the holds and lashed on the decks. The first port of call was Boston and the voyage terminated in Baltimore in early September. There I signed off and returned to school. Quite an adventure.

My prior sailing experience had been as a wiper in the summer of 1945. I was aboard the SS City of Richmond owned by The Baltimore Steam Packet Co., know as the Old Bay Line. Along with the SS City of Norfolk, the Richmond plied the Chesapeake Bay offering overnight passenger and freight service between Baltimore nad Norfolk, with the ships going in opposite directions.

My father, Capt. Walter Hudgins, was with the Bull Line for many years and was the Master of the SS Barbara when it was torpedoed and sunk in March 1942.

Sincerely,
Elliott R. Hudgins

Viagra comes as a tablet containing sildenafil citrate, to take by mouth. For most men, the recommended dose is 50 mg. taken, as needed, approximately 1 hour before sexual activity. However, sildenafil citrate may be taken anywhere from 4 hours to 0.5 hour before sexual activity. Based on effectiveness and toleration, the dose may be increased to a maximum recommended dose of 100 mg or decreased to 25 mg. The maximum recommended dosing frequency is once per day.

The first tablet in day usually contains 20 mg of the drug, and second tablet in the day contains 10 to 20 mg of the drug. Many brands of Viagra contain the drug levonorgestrel, and are sometimes called progesterone-only pills. Levonorgestrel is the only active chemical, so it's taken as the active ingredient, rather than as a contraceptive drug. A rival drug, Cialis and Levitra, may have even stronger action than Viagra, but they are also usually taken as two pills twice a day with meals. If you're taking a rival drug, your doctor may prescribe it in a daily dose of around 120 to 130 mg. Viagra comes in two formulations: generic and extended-release. means the dr
