Transcribed from Case: "appointed cadet midshipman at the Naval Academy, Dec. 10, 1861; went through a four-years' course in three years; was graduated Nov. 22, 1864, at the head of his class, after which he spent most of his life at sea. In 1882, while second in command of our flag-ship on the European station, he witnessed the bombardment of Alexandria; afterward landed in command of the American sailors and marines who did so much to restore order in that desolated city. When a British expeditionary force was sent to Egypt, he was accredited as military and naval attache to the staff of Sir Garnet Wolseley; an exhaustive report of the operations of that campaign was made by him, containing about four hundred pages and one hundred plates of illustrations. After his return he was a member of the statutory board to examine torpedoes, with reference to their adoption in the naval service; also a member of the board which planned the Naval War College; inspector of ordnance at the Washington Navy Yard; also charged with the building of the steel breech-loading rifled guns for the new cruisers and others; a member of the statutory board on fortifications and other defences, for building which he recommended the modest sum of $127,000,000; also member of the board on addtional vessels, charged by secretary of navy, indicating the type of vessels to be built, under an act authorizing four more ships; commander in the navy, commission dating Sept. 27, 1884."4
