He was carried by his immediate companions some distance down the beach, where he was left, under the belief that he would be carried aboard a little Confederate guard schooner or sloop that was standing immediately for the shore but he was not discovered, and of course, fell into the hands of the foe. After our troops had left the Island, he was approached by an officer on horseback, to whom he introduced himself as "Lieutenant Sayre, of the Confederate States marines.
The officer replied: "I am Lieutenant Langdon, of the army — you shall be immediately cared for." He was next visited by some of Wilson's boys, who promised him good treatment, and claiming him as their prisoner.
He was shortly after taken to the hospital, where he was treated with the utmost kindness by the chief surgeon, the officers of the army, as well as by regulars and Zouave privates.
Colonel Brown also visited and conversed with him in the most amiable manner.
