Cruise of the U.S. Flag-Ship Hartford – From the Personal Journal of Wm. C. Holton

April 8th. Was signalized by the mortar fleet, twenty-two in number, arriving from Pilot Town, where they ha d gone to be stripped of their rigging. They looked very pretty as they ranged along the shore in line of battle, with their flagship, the Harriet Lane, at their head. We look for a great noise from them before long.
