Captain Page refused, however, to take more than the sum he had named. Captain Page abandoned ship on May 20, 1865. Subsequently the vessel passed into the possession of the United States government, which sold her to the Japanese government. The Stonewall made the long journey to the Orient, but shortly afterwards foundered off the coast of Japan in a gale. Of the officers on the Stonewall, three are now living—Dr. Green and Mr. Virginius Newton, of this city, and the master, W. W. Wilkinson, whose home is at Charleston, S. C. Lieutenant Davidson's account. The meeting of the City of Richmond and the Stonewall at Quiberon, is thus told by Lieutenant Hunter Davidson, who had charge of the crew of the City of Richmond, in a letter dated February 6, 1865, and printed in The Secret Service of the Confederate States in Europe.

The Coquette, for instance, which was the most indifferent of all our ships, and which has now been sold, made nine round trips under the command of Lieutenant Carter, and saved them every one, clearing for the Government at least six hundred thousand dollars. The Robert E. Lee, the best ship we had, was successful in all her numerous trips, as long as she was under the command of Lieutenant Wilkinson. The first trip she made after the command had been transferred to a person who was not an officer of the navy she was beached and captured, or sunk. While the officers of the navy have been successful in all their many trips except one, every ship not commanded by an officer of the navy has been lost. The inference is irresistible. None but officers of the navy ought to command our blockade ships. They are skillful seamen, good navigators, men of standing and character; the
