Transcript Volume III At Sea, Enroute to Valparaiso, Chile, May 23, 1936 Number XIX --::-- UP THE LADDER All hands extend congratulations to our shipmates in their successful advancement. VALPARAISO AND THE NAVY --::-- Although it may not be generally realized, the port of Valparaiso, Chile, which we are about to visit, has had historical connections with the Navy. During the War of 1812 against the British, Commodore David Porter, in command of the USS ESSEX, fearing capture by the British vessels in the vicinity of Cape Frio, Brazil, sailed south. His was the first American naval vessel to round the Horn. After he rounded the Horn he put in to Valparaiso to replenish his supplies. He was courteously received by the Chileans, who were at that time in revolt against Spain. Leaving Valpa­raiso a week later, Porter sailed north and captured several British merchant vessels off the coasts of Peru and Ecu­ador. These he sent back to Valparaiso, whither he himself returned in the ESSEX in February, 1814. There he was blockaded by the British vessels PHEOBE and CHERUB. On March 28th Porter engaged in combat with these vessels and was forced to sur­render. The other historical incident is more unfortunate. In 1888 Chile was plun­ged into civil war.

For purposes of defense Balmaceda assumed the powers of dictator. Although he had the Army on his side he was finally defeated.
