description
On the steamer "Vidette" at the time I was her Commissary was a North Carolinian named "White" who served as Pilot for the Sounds and rivers of No. Carolina. In April 1862 he became possessed with a desire to see his family and on the 30th of April he started for Roanoke Island on the Str. "Phoenix". We never saw him again, but we afterwards learned that he reached home (somewhere near Edenton N.C.) and secreted himself in the woods. In the darkness of the night, his friends carried food to him, as he did not dare to sleep at home. He was discovered by the rebels, who hanged him almost in the presence of his family.
