Morgan Evans Subsistence & Quarters

I've been in the attic again trying to clean out many years of junk. I came across this paper work which might interest you or not.
After I had been stationed at Woods Hole for about a year somebody decided that since I did so much traveling I needed to be on Subsistence and Quarters. They run me off the base to find living quarters elsewhere. I got a room in the house on the hill which you see in these pictures. I had a room there and some fishermen had rooms there also. I think the rent was $30 a month but I'm not sure that I remember the exact amount. I think I did that for about 6 months. Then somebody decided they were paying me too much so I had to move back to the base. I only got Subs & Qrtrs when I was traveling. I didn't find all of the paper work that covers this time but I did find 3 months of records after I had gone back to the base. This is what I sent you on the CD that is enclosed.
Please note that I drove my personal vehicle on some jobs because somebody else had the Radio Shop's Jeep. Notice the license number on the paper work. If you notice I made a couple of one day trips to LS 112 to help out the ET that was on the ship then. These records do not cover my one month tours on LS 112.
The records were on thin paper and didn't scan too good, but maybe you can read them. I had to haul this paper work every where I went so the OIC at that station or ship could make an endorsement on them.
I actually made some money on this deal. Things were a lot cheaper then.
