(p. 3,col. 2) A follow on comment -
June 15, 1883 - page 2; "We intended to give a word to W.H. Colby last week when recording the death of this old citizen, one of the first to call on us, after we commenced to publish TELEGRAPH, to renew his subscription. Dr. McKeen had informed him that we had served as Private Sec. to the elder Com. J. Downes on the Boston station. Mr Colby served as Quartermaster on the Potomac, commanded by Com. Downes when he bombarded and reduced to submission the natives of Quallah Battou on the island of Sumatra, for some murderous rascality of theirs. We had a pleasant talk then, of those days being sailors, not bedeviled by steam. The deceased was a man of marked intelligence and he exhibited his sailor characteristics in hailing us as a shipmate, though we had served the same officer years apart and we had never been at sea. We know Mr. Colby's worth when he spoke generally and favorably of the officers with whom he had served."

William H. listed his occupation as "Circumnavigator of the globe" which indeed he was. His ship, the Potomac, after crushing the Pepper Pirates" continued on to the Philippines, China and the Sandwich Islands. Then to the West Coast of South America where they became the station ship calling on various ports and showing the flag. The entire voyage took three years. There were 500 people on the ship when they left New York. 25 were lost from various causes during the voyage. This was considered an unusually low number for that time.
