U.S. NAVY ARMED GUARD CENTER, W.W.2, TREASURE ISLAND, 
SAN FRANCISCO,CA.

"Looking for anyone who may have had the same experience that 
I had with a GAS CHAMBER on 20 June 1944 while in transit 
between the S.S. CAPE CANSO and the S.S. JAMES J. O'KELLEY 
at Treasure Island, San Francisco, California.

"We were at General Quarters when we were told to remove our 
clothes and to put on clothes and a gas mask furnished by the 
U.S. Navy and not to remove anything until we were told to do 
so.  After going through the gas chamber we were told to take 
the mask and clothes off and to take a shower.

"On 21 June 1944 I reported aboard the S.S. James J. O'Kelley 
and three days later was afflicted with blisters all over my 
neck and shoulders. 

"I now believe that I went through the gas chamber as part of 
a MUSTARD GAS EXPERIMENT OF PROTECTIVE CLOTHING.  I will 
appreciate any help that I may get to help me prove that these 
experiments did happen.
