       Off for the Stone � Charley Honeywell.
The officers with whom I talked subsequently
blamed Benham, most of them ridiculing him
as a braggart.  Surely if an innocent he was
a most unlucky man.  Finishing my letter
I left it on Halpine�s desk for mailing and
turned out, finding the sentry sitting on the steps
in front of                                         
the building,                                     
fast asleep.                                        
I didn�t wake                                     
the young                                          
fellow.  The

was nearly                                          
flooded as                                          
I descended                                        
it, and, to                                             
the right, lay                                        
a steamer                                              
containing
the wounded

	at the end I
	found the Cos-

	went aboard
	her and to
	bed, in a berth
	assigned me
	by the steward,
	after a brief
	interview with

	Next morning,
being summoned to breakfast I found two of
Gen-Hunter�s aids on board, whom I had
met on the preceeding evening and was also very

Honeywell, my acquaintance of 745 Broadway,
and admirer of pretty Matty Edwards.  He show-
