essee, and which terminated by her surrender at ten o'clock, we lost many more men than from the fire of the batteries of Fort Morgan.
Admiral Buchanan was wounded in the leg; two or three of his men were killed, and five or six wounded. Commander Johnston, formerly of the United States navy, was in command of the Tennessee, and came on board the flag-ship, to surrender his sword and that of Admiral Buchanan.
The surgeon, Doctor Conrad, came with him, stated the condition of the Admiral, andown the Tennessee, she displayed a white flag, but not in time to prevent my colliding with her; having been so disabled by the fire of the fleet and unable longer to continue the contest, and I was fortunate in receiving her surrender from Commander Johnston, her Commander--Admiral Buchanan being wounded — a prize to the fleet under your command.
I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant. Wm. E. Le Roy, Commander. Rear-Admiral D. G. Farragut, Commanding W. G. B. Squadron, Mobile
