Excerpt: ...March 9, 1865, I was promoted to the rank of acting volunteer lieutenant-commander, and at the expiration of the war I was honorably discharged from the Navy with that rank, December 19, 1865. I was examined for admission to the regular Navy in December, 1866, and sent to the West Indies with the rank of acting master. Two years after this examination I received a commission as ensign in the regular Navy. During this time (since my examination) I think that two classes had graduated from Annapolis. I came in at the foot of these classes and commenced to work up again. Was commissioned as master December 18, 1868, and commissioned lieutenant March 21, 1870.

It was deemed a hardship, and by special act I was made a lieutenant-commander on the retired list, the rank, that as a volunteer officer, I held in 1865. At the commencement of the war with Spain (although 65 years old, 1 reported myself as fit for duty and was ordered to the U. S. S.
