‘ [298] we here shed and the gloom of mourning throughout my command bear witness. His loss is irreparable. The memory of “the gallant Pelham,” his many virtues, his noble nature, and purity of character, is enshrined as a sacred legacy in the hearts of all who knew him. His record has been bright and spotless, his career brilliant and successful. He fell—the noblest of sacrifices—on the altar of his country, to whose glorious service he had dedicated his life from the beginning of the war.’
