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

March 1st. The Pensacola arrived from Key Wrest to-day; also a store-ship which brought us two nine-inch guns, increasing our number to twenty-two nine-inch, and two rifled pivots. This morning a boat expedition left the ship in tow of the New London for Biloxi, a small village on the main land, and returned in the evening after capturing a few guns and obtaining much valuable information, and without doing any fighting.
