ermanent occupation. It is obvious, I say, that McClellan did learn the lesson we intended; for after Williamsburg our army was allowed to pursue its march very leisurely up the peninsula — a considerable part of it stopping to finish the reenlistment and reorganization by the election of new officers. But it is not a satisfactory battle to contemplate, because the administering of this lesson cost too much in blood, and this because, as so often happens, some one blundered. Col. Richard L. Maury-son of Commodore M. F. Maury-and an exceptionally intelligent officer, who at the close of the fight commanded the Twenty-fourth Virginia, Early's old regiment, the colonel and lieutenant-colonel having been shot down — has written a brief but strong memoir on this battle, from which it would seem well nigh impossible to draw any other conclusions. He makes substantially the following points: General Magruder had built, and was commended for building, a chain of redoubts acro

effects. Thus ended our memorable cruise—grand in its conception. Grand in its execution, and unprecedentally, awfully grand in its sad finale. To the four winds the gallant crew scattered, most of them never to meet again until called to the Bar of that Highest of all Tribunals. The ship was handed over to the United States agents, a Captain Freeman was appointed to take her to New York, but going out and encountering high west winds, lost light spars and returned to Liverpool. It was not tried again. The noble vessel was put up and sold to the Sultan of Zanzibar. She finally was lost on a coral reef in the Indian Ocean in 1879— fourteen years after the last Confederate flag was hauled down. [The flag of the Shenandoah, reverently preserved by the late Colonel Richard Launcelot Maury, C. S. A., son of Commissioner Matthew Fontaine Maury, was recently deposited with the Confederate Memorial Literary Society, and is preserved in the Museum Building at Richmond, Va.

In Memoriam. Richard L. Maury, Ex-Member of the Executive Committee and Life Member. Wilfred E. Cutshaw, Member of the Executive Committee. At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Southern Historical Society, held December 27, 1907, the following was presented and adopted: Since the last meeting of the Executive Committee of the Southern Historical Society, it has lost by death two of its highly valued members, who not only in signal service in the field, in the Army of the Confederate States, but in enkindling reverence for the just cause since, have commended themselves by their example, not alone to us, but world-wide to those who hold truth and fidelity in regard. Richard Launcelot Maury, Colonel Confederate States Army, born in Fredericksburg, Va., in 1842; died at Richmond, Va., October 14, 1907; son of Commodore Matthew Fontaine Maury, the Pathfinder of the Seas, and by double line of that fugitive Huguenot band of exiles for conscience sake, whose influen
