U.S. Gun Boat
Paul Jones
Off St. John's Bluff
Oct. 4th 1862

My Dear Sally
Our Flag is now waving over the Fortifications of St. John's the enemy having
skedaddled so soon as they saw that the Army & Gun Boats were ready to make a
combined attack. The fort was very strong & much heavily armored than I thought.
I write in a tremendous hurry. Will make up for it in my next.

God Bless You All
Your Affectionate Husband


[Different handwriting on back]
To Mrs. Steedman after capture of the forts at St. John's
Oct. 4th, 1862
