    Excerpt from John Sanford Barnes: A Memorial and a Tribute

    I4of ethics and English studies, acting also as instructor in seamanship and naval tactics. The following sum mer he had command of the practice-ship Savannah. During these busy years Captain Barnes found time to write and have published his book, Submarine War fare, the first important work on the use of torpedoes. It is, even to-day, a text-book, and has been translated into many languages.

    His thoughts often turned to civil life, which he had begun so auspiciously, and in the summer of 1868, having obtained a long leave of absence, he departed on a trip to the West with his father, General Barnes. The latter had just been appointed commissioner by the government to report on the condition of the Union Pacific Railroad, which had progressed in its construction as far as Cheyenne. Returning from this journey, which was full of adventure and interest, Captain Barnes determined finally on leaving the service, a determination hastened by the failing health of his father, who was suffering from the effects of the wounds he had received at Gettysburg as well as from the old camp-fever that had never left him. As before stated, General Barnes died on February 12, 1869. At the time his son was still on his leave of absence. This interval had been put to such good use that during it Captain Barnes had received many offers to undertake important positions in business life. In February, 1869, he sent in his resignation and found himself a citizen again. In the meantime he had moved to Elizabeth, New Jersey, the home of his married sister, Mrs. Henry M. Baker, through whose husband he became acquainted with the late John S. Kennedy.
