  • Used
  • Signed
Norfolk, 1849. unbound. 1 page, 10 x 8 inches, Norfolk Navy Yard, February 28, 1849. Signed "D.G. Farragut Commdr. U.S.N." to assistant surgeon Dr. Charles H. Wheelwright, who apparently had mounted a hissy-fit over the loss of a pencil and denounced the personnel at the Gosport Navy Yard as a bunch of thieves. Farragut diplomatically informs the surgeon that "...the pencil, (which caused you to denounce 'the Gosport Navy Yard people a set of Plunderers') has been found; and I strongly suspect precisely where you left it. It will be delivered to your order. The propriety of your denunciation I leave to your own conscience." Small tears at the edges of the folds; still very good condition. Union rear admiral instrumental in the taking of New Orleans and the Union control of the Mississippi. It was at Mobile Bay where he exclaimed, "Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!
