Dear parents and Paul: We have been in quarantine five days. Lots of the soldiers we brought up here have the typhoid and "yellow Jack," but non6 of the crew are affected. I am well, but oh how hungry ! We have had nothing but raw coffee, hardtack and salt horse for eight days, and won't get anything more until the ship goes out of commission. We will be in the great naval parade just the same. The St. Paul won the first naval prize (?) in the western ocean in this war. She has made more miles, car ried more men and been in the Santi ago blockade, after locating Cerveras' fleet in the harbor, in San Juan block ade, fought the Terror and Isabelle, but it has not been all sunshine. We have received no mail since in N. Y., last, and this long quurrantine short rations is is no snap.

Alter the Comanche had received what stores we had for her, we left Ponce aud yiucmiuu w Arroyo, a place where we expected to effect a landing place as in American troops were at that place and which was still being held by the Span mruH. On our way from Ponce to Arroyo, we fell in with the Cincinnati, and from her received one or the natives of the Island a Porto Kicon. who was to mint ns in. We arrived at Arroyo, early in the day and found we were not alone in landing troops, for the St. Louis was also there landing an Illinois Regiment. We learned then that the Spanish had fled the place and the landing of troops was being effected without any fighting. uuuouuieuiy, uie enemy nan word landing would be made at Arroyo and the American ships were then on their way there, and they simply got out mere is, nowever, sun aoout guer illas knocking about the hills around Arroyo, l he Porto Kicons seemed quite pleased to see the Americans take nos- session, judging from the way they were greewu upon arriving. After maneuvering the ship around Arroyo ail night, we commenced dis charging troops and army stores in the morning, and the Gussie towed the lightr erfi to num. During the fourth of August the St iouis urea or snens ashore.

We arrived off Ponce that same evening, but kept maneuvering the ship oir uie port all night and made for the land in the morning. Immediately upon anchoring at a smtuble point west of tardones Island, we were hailed by the uoinancne, and she was moored to us to.reeeive more stores for the armv.
