I then learned for the first time of the loss of that boat, and after consulting with Colonel Ellet, I concluded to continue on down as far as the mouth of the Red River. On the afternoon of the same day I got under way, the Era No. 5, leading. On nearing Ellis's Cliffs the Era made the prearranged signal of danger ahead, soon after which. I made out the rebel steamer Webb. Before I got within range of the Webb she had turned and was standing down stream with great speed.
