Excerpt from Biographical Notice of Captain James Biddle

Captain Truxtun was now on the eve of a cruise in a lar ger vessel, and on this occasion, Mr. Biddle complied with the Wishes of two of his sons, James the subject of this sketch, and Edward whose early death we have just noticed, by plac ing them under the care of that experienced officer. This cruise terminated, however, much sooner than was expected, by the peace with France, and afforded no Opportunity for ac quiring any reputation, but that which arises from the able and faithful discharge of the daily duties annexed to the eco homy of a vessel of war. It is indeed owing to the proper discharge of these duties, that success attends men in the hour of struggle and difficulty; but as they are not calculated to excite the attention of the public, it is customary to pass them by with a general notice. Still, it ought not to be for gotten, that the glory of the service, and the attainment of success, are inseparably connected with the nice and critical discharge of those official duties,that the world knows nothing of, and which are not thought worthy of its praise. But when we contemplate a victory gained over an enemy, accustom ed to triumph over every opponent, in every sea, it is not alone the splendour of the achievement that should monopo lize our feelings. We should re¿ect on the vast expense of labour by which the skill and discipline necessary to this re sult was acquired, and on the patience, perseverance, zeal and ability of that admirable race of gallant officers, under whose auspices the system was brought to such perfection.
