I burnt down the hotels and wharf buildings; also the dwelling-house and other buildings of a Mr. Philippe Landry, who is said to be a captain of guerrillas. He fired upon our men, but they chased him off. We also brought off some ten or twelve of his negroes, and supplied ourselves with cattle and sheep from his place.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

D. G. Farragut, Flag-Officer Commanding W. G. Blockading Squadron. Hon. Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy.
