their escape. They were not. discov
ered by the Indians until beyond
the reach oi their deadly rifles.
When we consider that during all
this time, one of the young women
was not only helpless, but had to be
borne by the strength of others, and
that Mrs. Perrine herself was abso
lutely ill, the determined fortitude
and cool calculation, the great feats
of strength, the daring adventure and
wonderful escape from butchery and
the flames, appear so striking as to al
most stagger human credulity.
The destitute fugitives were taken
wpby a boat from the schooner Medi
um, Captain Magee. Their situation
must have been' truly distressing—
having been nine hours in the mud
and water at the Key—and some
three hours exposed with nothing but
tattered night clothes, if bv this time
they,ever merited that name —to the
burning rays of a tropical sun. they
were literally basted alive. They
wish to express their grateful ac
knowledgment to the Captain of the
Medium, .and his officers and crew,
ior their gentlemanly and generous
conduct upon this trying occasion.
They wish also to express their deep
iclt gratitude to Captain Laugh!in, of
the “7'7/r/." ilis obliging kindness
and that of his men. will long be held
in remembrance by the sufferers. On
board the tSanta steamer, in which
they reached St. Augustine, every
kindness and attention was shown
them which their wants and desti
tute condition required. To I >r. Mc-
Creary and Midshipman Murry, of
the naval depot —Tea Table Key—
and very many gentlemen of Key
West, they feel under weighty obli
gation for their attention and kind
ness. They cannot refrain from a
special acknowledgment of their
gratitude to l)r. Edward Worrel, U.
8. A., who accompanied them from
Cape Florida to Philadelphia, and
treated them in the most praisewor
thy manner. And they wish to say to
their friends generally, that no pains
have been spared wherever they have
been, among strangers or acquaintan
ces, to mitigate the burden of their
sufferings; and that they have reached
their destination in safety, and are
happy thus to acknowledge the nu
merous favors heaped upon them, and
their gratitude to an overruling Prov
idence, whose protecting hand so sig
nally shielded them in the hour of
trial and danger. —Tampa Guard
