Excerpt from Cruise of the U. S. Flag-Ship Hartford, 1862 1863: Being a Narrative of All Her Operations Since Going Into Commission, in 1862, Until Her Return to New York in 1863
When this journal was commenced, and until within a few days since, no idea of its publication wa... s entertained, and it has been forced into type only by the earnest solicitation of the officers and crew of the noble ship which has been our home for nearly two years. The anxiety of our friends has led us to push the completion of this little book to as speedy a close as possible; therefore our readers must not look for any display of literary attainments, but receive it as a correct epitome of our cruise on the Mississippi.
