"The steamer Augusta Dinsmore came to anchor late in the evening of the 15th of February, 1863, off the entrance to Port Royal. The night was cloudy and dark; the wind northeast. There had been a gently breeze through the day, but when the sun went down the wind came up. Great waves were rolling past us, tumbling headlong upon the sand-bars. Loud the wind and ceaseless the roar of the breakers. Through the night I heard the voices of the sea, ---- solemn and fearful. Yet it was glorious to stand upon the deck, holding on to the ropes, and look out upon the ocean white with foam, ---- the steamer rolling, pitching, and tossing, as if tugging to break the great iron chain which held her. The storm-clouds were flying past, so low down that they almost touched the masts." ------- from Wandering About. Historic Incidents and Sketches Around Port Royal. The Huguenot Fort. ---- Autumn. (Vol. II, No. V, May, 1866). Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 049634
