Notes
Content: Printed on border: "Captain Bailey, bearing a flag of truce, put off in a boat, accompanied by Lieutenant George H. Perkins, with a demand for the surrender of the city, as well as for the immediate substitution of the Federal for the Confederate ensign. They stepped ashore and made their way to the city Hall through a motley crowd, which kept cheering for the South and Jefferson Davis, and uttering groans and hisses for President Lincoln and the 'Yankee' fleet. General Lovell returned an unqualified refusal, besides advising Mayor Monroe of New Orleans not to surrender the city."
