8th. inst.

 

Reached Mobile Bay
today and anchored off
Fort Morgan.
Several ships had arrived
before us. The Thos A. Scott
had a mutiny on the
trip which was quelled
by the officer commanding.
Charges are preferred against
16 of them, many of whom
ought to be shot, and all of whom
will be imprisoned.
In the evening visited
Ft. Morgan.
The effect of shot + shell
could be noticed everywhere
almost.
And this is Farragut’s battleground.
