The story of the tight, as told by the
Hudson's men, is as follows:
"The Winslow, the Hudson, the
Machias and the Wilmington were

flagship. The Machias lay about 12
miles out. the Wilmington 500 yards

At half past 11 o'clock the Wilming

Winslow to start to the eastern shore
off Cardenas bay and the Hudson to
the western shore, while the Wilming
ton took her station in midehannel.
This work occupied two hours. Noth
ing was discovered on either shore
and the boats were approaching
each other on their return when a puff
of smoke was observed on shore at
Cardenas, and a shell whistled over
them. The Winslow was on the in
bide. nearer the shore. The Hudson
and the Winslow reported to the Wil
mington and orders came promptly
to go in and open fire, but the Span
iards had not waited for a reply
to their first shot. The Cardenas
harbor shore had already become one
dense cloud of smoke, shot with flashes
of fire, and an avalanche of shells was
bursting toward the little Winslow.
This was 2:03 o'clock, and for 20 min
utes the firing continued from the
6hore without cessation, but none of
the shots had at that time found their
mark, though they were striking dan
Meanwhile the Hudson's two six-
pounuers were panging away at a
terrific rate. How many of the tor
pedo boat's shots took effect is not
known. The first two of the Hudson's
shells fell short, but after these two
every one floated straight into the
smoke-clouded shore. The Spaniards'
aim in the meantime was improving,
and it was presently seen that two
empty barks had been anchored off
shore as ranges. It was 35 minutes

shell struck tbe Winslow on the star
