His interesting statement follows: [editor.] I first went to Montgomery, Ala., which was then the seat of Government, said Mr. Baumgarten. I was armed with letters of introduction to Alexander H. Stephens, who immediately offereded, agreeing to do all the work—engraving—at a price to be set by myself. My offer was accepted and I at once set to work engraving the great seal. While at Montgomery I practically completed engraving all the seals for the several departments of the government. I secured the services of two experienced engravers from New Orl six weeks when I sent for my wife and child, and I was able to put $2,200 in my wife's hands when she reached me. When the seat of government was moved from Montgomery to Richmond I accompanied the officials, traveling on the special train. Immediately after reaching Richmond I set about establishing a plant, and soon had qui

There the Captain, lifting a tarpaulin which covered the desk, displayed to the astonished gaze of Mr. Baumgarten about six bushels of coarse gunpowder which the Captain said was to be used in blowing everybody to hell if capture seemed inevitable. At midnight the blockade runner started. Bermuda was reached safely, but Mr. Baumgarten had to wait there two weeks to get a vessel to Liverpool and this delay proved disastrous to him in a financial way. An uneventful voyage brought him to Liverpool and thence to London. There he presented his credentials and drafts, and sought to get down to business at once.

The fiscal agent, however, was out of funds, and handing him *p;200 in gold as pocket money, directed him to put up at the Queen Hotel, where all his expenses would be paid until news could be received from Richmond. What the fiscal agent next heard from Richmond was the news of the downfall of the Confederacy. This left the fiscal agent and Mr. Baumgarten in the lurch, but Mr. Baumgarten was provided with a ticket to Paris and a letter of introduction to Mr. Slidell, then representing the Confederate Government at the French capital. Mr. Slidell took care of him until the President issued the amnesty proclamation, when he pulled out for home, I got here in time, said Mr. Baumgarten, to be arrested on an average of six times a day, and if I had arrived two weeks sooner I suppose I would have been torn to pieces.
