ts or in such other manner as his judgment might suggest.
The most efficient vessels at the disposal of Captain Smith were the Miami, Commander Renshaw; Tacony, Lieutenant-Commander Truxtun; Sassacus, Lieutenant-Commander Roe; Mattabesett, Commander Febiger, and the Wyalusing, Lieutenant-Commander Queen.
Captain Smith was well supplied with instructions by his commander-in-chief, Acting-Rear-Admiral Lee, although it seems probable that so gallant and distinguished an officer could have done Edenton Bay, were under Captain Smith's command:
Miami, Acting-Volunteer-Lieutenant Charles A. French.
Ceres, Acting-Master H. H. Foster.
Commodore Hull, Act.-Master Francis Josselyn.
Mattabesett, Commander J. G. Febiger.
Sassacus, Lieutenant-Commander F. A. Roe.
Wyalusing, Lieutenant-Commander W. W. Queen.
Whitehead, Acting-Ensign G. W. Barrett.
The Miami was fitted with a torpedo to explode against the side of the ram, if opportunity offered.
