* While Mr. Riddle was engaged in the siege of Mobile, during the late war, he
was one day strolling about Dauphine Island, near Fort Gains, where his depart-
ment was stationed, when he was suddenly brought face to face with a most beau-
tiful monument of white marble. He read the inscription, which was as follows :
" Tn memory of Francis M. Riddle, First Confederate Regiment, Georgia Cavalry,"
— his own name in full. This singular incident deeply impressed Mr. Riddle at the
time, and he still looks back to it as something remarkably strange.

the arms overboard, except those retained for their own use, and by sep-
arately capturing the lieutenant, was completely successful, and the boat
and prisoners triumphantly landed, July 26, 1813, at Fort George (dis-
tance sixty miles), where a large number of officers and men assembled to
congratulate them upon their good fortune. Mr. Riddle was furloughed,
and returned to his home at Schenectady, where he might be nursed and
