Vanderbilt, Lieutenant-Commander Baldwin, had just left the port in search of him. On the day that the Vanderbilt left Simon's Bay, the Alabama was cruising further off the land than usual, a lucky circumstance for Semmes, whose romantic career would otherwise have been brought to a sudden and ignominious termination.
