William McAllister, by name died last night.  As there appeared to be no possibility of 
getting ashore, we were compelled to bury him at sea.  His remains were sewn up in a sack, 
well shotted at the feet, and laid upon the quarter deck, the flag of his country his pall.  At 
11:00 o'clock the ensign flying at half-mast, reversed, the first gun was fired and the 
companies were formed along the deck; the body was carried to the starboard gangway, 
where the burial services were read over it, which being finished, another gun was fired 
and his remains were consigned to the deep.  One dull heavy splash and the blue waves 
closed over him forever.  Away from home, country, friends and all that makes this world 
dear, beneath the waters of the gulf for ages he will sleep.
