Captain Bailey's division, led by the Cayuga, passed the line of obstructions in close order, but from this point the vessels were somewhat damaged by the heavy fire of St. Philip before it was possible for them to reply. Captain Bailey kept on steadily in the Cayuga and ran the Farragut's fleet proceeding up the Mississippi River past forts Jackson and St. Philip. Porter's mortar flotilla in the foreground (dressed to have swept the way. The gunners of Fort St. Philip were driven to shelter by the heavy batteries of the Pensacola and Mississippi, and the difficulties of the rear ships diminished. Most of the injuries inflicted upon the fleet were from St. Philip, which had not been exposed to the bombardment as had Fort Jackson. The Flag-officer, in the centre division, came abreast the forts as Bailey's division reached the turn in the river above. The Hartford and Brooklyn kept the line, but the

en called by Rear-Admiral Bailey to an incorrect sketch which accompanied my report of May 6, 1862, upon the passage of Forts Jackson and St. Philip, I have the honor to forward herewith a corrected diagram, showing the position of the vessels at the time they passed through the obstructions after the chains had been separated. This will demonstrate that Rear-Admiral (then Captain) Bailey led the fleet in the Cayuga, up to the attack on the forts, as had been previously ordered, he taking St. Philip with his division, while I reserved Jackson for the remainder of the squadron under my command. The skeleton lines show how the vessels moved up from their original position of two lines into the line ahead. This correction has not been made before, because I was not aware of the existence of the mistake — the diagram being evidently a clerical error — and in opposition to the text, in which I distinctly state that Rear-Admiral Bailey not only led, but performed his duty with great g
