(Sch.: t. 12; a. 2 12-pdr. how.)
The first Swift was a small schooner captured by Patapsco on 9 February 1864 in Wassau Sound, Ga. No record has been found of any filing of libel papers against the schooner, but she was taken into the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron. The vessel served at Tybee Island, Ga., and at Port Royal as a tender. She was sold at public auction there on 8 August 1865.
