    This official naval document, containing transfer orders, is addressed to I. E. Stolberg, Bureau of Steam Engineering. Mr. Stolberg is transferred to Hampton Roads, Virginia, to assist in the electrical fitting out of the U.S.S. Nevada, later badly damaged in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The order is stamped at the bottom "Franklin D. Roosevelt," but just to the left of the stamp the Assistant Secretary of the Navy signs "FDR" in his own hand. The document has several endorsements, and contains a separate second page containing several other official naval endorsements, including two signed by then Captain William S. Sims, skipper of the U.S.S. Nevada.
