But, contrary to our expectations both of the enemy's vessels passed us without firing a shot — evidently mistaking us for one of their gunboats. As soon as they had cleared us, we cheered to port, and delivered our starboard broadside into one of the and cheering quickly the at Brookside.

Two large ships and three gunboats were now engaging us, at a distance of about three hundred yards. We backed off the bank with the intention of dropping down near the forts, when the Manassas came to our relief. She steered for the enemy's vessels, and as soon as they discovered her, they started up the river. Just as we were backing off the bank, Lieutenant commanding T. B. Huger fell severely wounded.
