run her. If I am captured, a visit to Vicksburgh will be my portion.
We shall see.
The following is the loss by the capture of the Queen of the West, as far as I can ascertain:
Eddison, Second Master; Henry Duncan, Third Master; David Taylor, Engineer, (scalded;) D. S. Booth, Surgeon; First Master Thompson, (wounded on the Atchafalaya;) Adjutant C. W. Bailey; one blacksmith, name unknown; George Andrews, James Foster, carpenters; L. C. Jarbou, Thomas Williams, David McCullom, Charles Launer, Carrol Smith, Ed. Hazleton, Charles Faulkner, John A. Bates, Norton F. Rice, Wm. Brown, Geo. W. Hill, soldiers; Mr. Anderson, of the Herald, and about thirty negroes.
Killed.--George Davis jumped overboard from the De Soto, and is supposed drowned.
The above list are the names of those who floated down the river and were not picked up by the De Soto.
They will probably be captured by the next confederate steamer in these waters, probably the Webb, as she pursues us.
