He says that in May 24 he first learn d that the Spanish he it was not at Cienfuegos and within two hours he started for Santiago. A what possible ground of criticism a lie says Quot Adverse to me there can be in All this i cannot see. I was on the spot acting under orders which gave me entire discretion and yet clothed me with tin responsibility of going to Santiago Only after i was satisfied that the Fleet was not at Sampson a order to hold Havana and i Enfin Gosie Given Admiral Schb v adds Quot this Etta a is not printed either in the appendix or tenth document a but i Cree had it on the 23d and it shows that i was expected to hold my Squadron off speaking of Quot the re Trogades movements which the Secretary adapting the language of Admiral Sampson As a reprehensible Admiral Schley says that in 42 years so a vice a never was such language used to characterize conduct of mine and i Sec no reason for it As to the Battie of Santiago Admiral Schley says the facts of that contest speak for themselves. He quotes from his official report to Sampson in which he congratulated Tho commander of the Squadron and raid the a Victory seems big enough for All of he asks the committee to contrast his reports and those of Sampson containing references to himself and continues a was to All this criticism of my course. Prior to the discovery by me on May 29 of Cervera i Fleet whether from Admiral Samp on or Tho in pertinent Nom of it has Ever been made by either to me and i never heard a word of it from any ant until after the Battle with that ii to although More than five weeks ii us passed sine the a i leg. Reprehensible conduct had occurred. Sampson s it Hub he i los ble i. J trek. A although Admiral Sampson used bulb language to the Secretary concerning me on the loth of july just one week after he Battlene has never to this Day in any manner or to any extent intimated to me any disapprobation or made to me any criticism of my conduct of the flying Admiral Schley quotes the departments dispatch of May 29 in these we ords a a the department looks to you to ascertain the tact of the presence of the emmy arum that if the enemy is in the Harbor at Santiago do not leave without decisive commenting on this the Admiral says a in obedience to the above order and without any further order or instruction from any one i did ascertain the fact that the enemy was a Santiago and the enemy did net leave without a decisive Contin detailing tin a vent connected with the Battle of july 3, he Gays that at 8 45 of that Day Admiral Sampson made signal from his flagship a a Dos n Gard movements of the commander in chief a a no re arced eastward to Siboney a this a says admirals it Hley a left me the senior officer present and necessarily clothed me with the responsibility of the signals were made from the Brooklyn to the Squadron until All signal j halyards were shot away and then i v the hey t rss army a ode. In conclusion Admiral Schley contends that the turn of the Brooklyn in the Battle of july 3 was Quot the crucial and deciding feature of the combat and of decided advantage. Furthermore he says.
