Macfarlane and Fergusson, Printers .92 + II Index) pp. Preface: "This little book is published for the use of the Midshipmen of the C.S. Navy. It has been prepared from notes collected by me while attached to the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, as Instructor in Naval Tactics and Seamanship. Having left the greater part of my MSS. in the hands of the enemy, I am compelled to publish this work in an incomplete form---- at some future day I hope to issue it in a more creditable manner. The Part on Harbor Routine, and the plan of Part III, is somewhat new, and suggested itself to me while employed in teaching at the U.S. Naval Academy. Questions are asked and the Answers omitted in order to cause the Student to think; and to give the Instructor an opportunity of explaining the philosophy of Seamanship and Naval Discipline. C.S.PATRICK HENRY, James River, September 28th, 1863." First Lieutenant Parker (1826-1896) was Superintendant of the Confederate Naval Academy on board the CSSPatrick Henry. He served on the Patrick Henry when The U.S. Navy owned it and later when it belonged to the Confederat States Navy. cf. Sabin 58777.
