The Arkansas ran aground and was burned by the crew. Lt. Grimball was assigned to service abroad on Jan. 6, 1864, and this cover was sent by Grimball's father.

The "Syren" belonged to the Charleston import & Export Company. She made 33 round trips through the blockade, the most of any blockade runner and came through the blockade to Charleston her last time on February 16, 1865, two days before Charleston fell to Union forces. She was tied up in the Ashlet River and set afire when the Feds arrived.
