Default Seeking book about Chinese Stewards in U.S. Asiatic Fleet

I am searching for a reliable source that describes in some detail the use of Chinese stewards, sometimes referred to a messboys, by the U.S. Navy's Asiatic Fleet before World War II. I am aware of the book Yangtze Patrol: The U.S. Navy in China by Kemp Tolley (Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 1971) which mentions Chinese stewards on several occasions. The source I seek could be a book, scholarly article, or magazine article. It could also be a website authored by a government agency, university, museum, or respected naval history organization. Thank you in advance to anyone who can recommend a suitable source.
