    The range and accuracy of the rifles startled the world. A pounder (inch) Parrott had an astonishing distance of 8, yards ( meters), just shy of 5 miles (8 kilometers), with pound hollow shot; the notorious "Swamp Angel" that fired on Charleston in was a pounder Parrott mounted in the marsh 7, yards from the city. With his memorandum book open he came to know what he could bring me on his next trip. I not only declined to take advantage of his kindness, but did all I could to have him arrested. The other never returned from opposite Vicksburg, and I have no doubt made his way to the nearest Federal outpost with information worth many bladders of quinine.
