Everybody knows Old Point Com
fort, Fort Monroe, Newport News,
the Rip Raps and Hampton Roads
at least on the maps and in the his
tory of the civil war.
The story I am going to tell had
its scenes in that locality, chiefly un
der the wntera of Hampton Roads,
and the time runs through nearly
On a black, stormy night in 1729
there came sailing in past Henlopen
xi Spanish caravel, tho El Dorado,
carrying 10,000 ounces of gold in in
gots of 50 pounds each.
The don in command looked in vain
over the black, seething waste of
water for a light of a boat that might
have on board a native of tho coast.
He paced the gallery to the high
prowed ship, called on nil the saints
and tore his hair out in handfuls.
All the time tho caravel drove on
in the storm and shuck the reef
where the ripraps were constructed
Next morning she had disappeared.
No one had seen her. One survivor
of the crew washed to shore and lay
dead to ojl appearance. Not a soul
in tho world knew that a rich treas
ure ship had been on the spot.
Old Louis Peran was about the
oldest man living anywhere on Mary
land east shore. He had been born
there and hia father before him.
They were not of the ancient Mary
land stock. A tradition went that
the first Peran known there was of
Spanish blood, old Louis Peran's
J-ouis Peran himself showed no
trace of Buch blood, but his young
grandson likewise a Louis Peran
had an olive complexion, black curly
hair, large brilliant dark eyes, and
the haughty nose of the original
Peran, whoso portrait hung in the
old parlor of the manor house. The
intermarriages had all been with tho
early English colonial families. Po
rans had fought in both wars tho
Eevolution arid the civil war and in
the last four men of the family had
given their lives, and now, in 1872,
the old grandfather and the young
grandson comprised tho whole race.
Not a man nor woman else was left of
This October evening the two sat
on the old, dilApidated veranda. It
had an outlook on tho Atlantic, and
white winged clippers wero skim
miner tho waves in the moonlight.
"Louis," said tho old grandfather
suddenly, laying down bis pipe, "you
lovo tho sea, aud I am going to tell
you a sea story. Every Peran loves
tho sea, but for 200 years 1 know of
one only that has been a sailor.
"I am going to tell you of that
Peran and of hs ship. My father
told me the story, and you may tell
your son somo day. Still I don't
think vou will. I think it will bo no
longer private family history by tho
time you aro gray iieaaeu.
"It -waa in 1739 that the El Dorado,
20 guns, Don Louis Juan de Aguado
Perano commander, was selected to
convey from tho Peruvian and Mex
ican mines an immense treasure in
gold and gems homo to the king of
"Don Louis gathered his treasure
safely enough, but one night, flying
tho yellow royal standard of Spain,
ho drove in here before an awful
ctnnn nml mink on a reef Adverse
winds had boat him out of his course
for days, and it was all unknown
"Just one man was saved. He had
been struck on the head by falling
timbers and was picked up on the
shore senseless. When hw health
was restored his memory was a le nk.
He oould not tell his name nor what
country ho sailed from He had been
found ou the beach, nearly naked,
but he could tell absolutely nothing,
not even tho name of his ship, or
that ho had come from a ship. His
jpeech wns Spanish that was all
that remained of his identity. He
learned English as he recovered, for
getting his Spanish utterly.
"He was a fine, hnndsonio man,
Willi a proud air of command. Ho
remained in the family it was heio
on this estate and married the
daughter, and this manor houto has
Lome own to us, at, you know, from
"When ho wns a very old man, he
Was one day at a bam raising, and
ly another stiango turn of circum
stances a falling beam struck him
on the head. The injury was a fatal
one at his advanced age, but it re
stored the memories he had lost for
"To his oldest son ho gave his his
tory and hi? name. Ho told them
that he had sworn to take on board
the El Dorado the king's treasuio and
guard it and deliver it at Barcelona.
Tho memory of the oath on the cru
cifix seemed to haunt him with terri
fying distinctness. Ho laid com
mands on his son to guaid the secret
of the location of the lost treasure
and to transmit it to his son, and so
it was to do down until such time as
the treasure could be recovered and
restored to the sovereign of Spain."
"A very interesting story, grand
father," said the young Louis, speak
ing now for tho first time. "So wo
are of noble blood. He was n gnrn
dee of Sp""! Clue blood I Well,
now, grandfather, you know I don't
care for such distinctions."
"Be silent, Louis," said theoldman
sternly. "To decry tho value of
blood is ignorance indeed." And then
lio went en: "None of us has been
ablo to attempt tho recovery of this
treasure. Nor have we seen how it
was ever to bo possible in the future.
But lately I have read of divers who
go down to the bottom of the sea and
perform wonderful feats there. 1
feel an o.d man's piesentiment re
garding you, Louis that you aie the
one of the raco to redeem tho oath to
Spain. Swear it to me, Louis."
"Indeed, grandfather, I cannot do
any such thing," interrupted the boy.
"If you say it is a point of family
honor to try to restore t' fabulous
treasure, I'll promise to do my best,
but I'll not Bwear it."
After a moment the eager look
faded out of the old man's eyes. He
smiled. "So be it," ho said. The boy
was looking at him fearlessly, and he
was struck by the resemblance to
(he old portrait over the mantel
piece, a fine, tall, muscular young
fellow, with the brilliant eyes and the
leonine expression. "The Perans
were never promise bieakers," ho
said. Then he added: "Among my
papers is a rough chart drawn by
Don Louis. If you do not uso it, pass
it on to your son."
One morning in 1877 a curious look
ing craft sailed in past tho capes aud
anchored in Hampton Roads, about
two lengths from tho rip-raps. Its
commander was a fine looking boy
about 18, and tho crow wero 12 stout
Cape Codders. On board were diver's
outfits, planks, barrels, chains, wind
lasses, endless coils of i"ope and some
Tho young captain at once set all
hands at work. Drags wero got out,
and tho bottom of the sea w as swept
for a circular space of five acres. A
very old chart was consulted for bear
ings, but as it was made from mem
ory by an old man at poii.t of death
it was liable to bo in error.
The grappling irons brought up
nothing of any value, but young
Louis Peran for of course it was ho
was not a whit discouraged
Ho had sold the old manor house
and the Peran plantation after his
grandfather's death and had gone
north into tho employ of a famous
diver. For three years ho had been in
the heavy work at Hell Gate in New
York harbor. After that he had
made a voyage to Spain.
"Tho vounc captain," as he was
called, put on a diver's suit and went
to the Iwttora. Tom Newell, a fine
diver, accompanied him. Tho trip
was apparently fruitless. They had
trouble with a current near the bot
tom, which ran very fast at flood
tide and made it difficult to keep
their feet. They found the bed of
the roads swept baio of mud in some
places; in others covered with loose
bowlders. Sand had been piled in
high banks by the het of the tides.
In some places the water was clear as
crystal, in others turbid and muddy,
There tho young captain began to
study. He anchored buoys at the
corner of n equal e and took ob-erva
tions of thosK) changes of place from
tho flood aud obb tides and from the
currents. lie spent hours under wa
ter examining the contour of the bot
tom. With Newell ho made a map
6howing all tho details for an area of
alwut 10 acres.
I will let Tom Newell stop in here
and tell the rest of the stery:
We worked for about 30 days at
the charting. Tho weather was mild
and the water in tho Roads compar
atively etili, and we had bad little
to hinder us. We had the usual ex-
perience with largo fish at the bot
tom One day a school of dogfish
1 swarmed around These follows aro
I nasty customers, for they are armed
' with two short daggers of bone near
I the tail, and a slash from one of them
la serious. They are --u .
1 If one of their number is hurt, the
other fellows gobble him up
I Sharks, too, we bad, but not man
eaters. One big fellow, however, was
io pertiitent that i auapecwu uo " i
belong to the man devouring breed.
Peran was down with me, but I could
not see him. Tho visitor turned out
to bo a blue shark and u dangerous
customer. He caino up rather close,
and I felt rather shaky ns he oy.d
me. A noise near mo niadt mo turn
my head. There was Peran, with a
big cheese kuifo in his hand, just
making a slash at tho sea wolf that
cut him open. They hauled us up,
aud that ended tho day's work for
Peran did not geem to mind it at
all. For a young chap, dovoid of
fear, that fellow took tho cake. Tho
crew stood in awo of him, boy though
ho was. He had a way of looking
steadily with his big eyes like the
black African lions. Yet ho was as
gentle as a girl. Well, wo raked and
raked tho bottom, but got only old
You'd think Peran would have giv
en in with disgust. But ho got more
and more hopeful, though it was go
ing on two months, nud he was pay
ing out big wages.
Ho never communicated his con
clusions to me, o I was to somo ex
tent working in tho dark: I tell you
I was almost devout ed with curios
ity. We oven had to guess that it
was a search for treasure. Tho old
est sailor in Norfolk and tho people
along shore had never heard of any
ship being lost thereabouts.
Well, there we aro I Wo got big
wages all of us as I told you. Ton
dollars a dny was my figure. The
grub was excellent, tho schooner
nicely fitted up, and taken alto
gether it wasn't bad.
All at once we went oun new tack.
There was a low ieef at the outer
side of the square wo had marked
out, about 500 yards away from the
ripraps. Before tho raps were con
structed tho swift curreut at tho bot
tom must have set differontlyi At
least I thought so and told Peran.
Ho nodded in a pleased way. As I
made it out, the work on tho new
tack was to discover how the tide
ran in former years. That was what
Peran was working out, I was sure,
for suddenly wo were set to building
a trap. Wo got a cargo of stone
Why didn't the government inter
fere? Well, however he got it, Peran
had a permit from tho secretary ot
war or somo one up there in Wash
ington, and none of the authorities
gave us any trouble.
A nice, dark skinned man came to
visit us onco or twice, and I heard
afterward that he was tho Spanish
minister. He joked a good deal with
Louis in his own lingo und laughed
I really think the old gentleman wab
of my opinion and believed we were
Well, we built two curving walls
at an angle of about 70 degrees and
left the angle open. One of these
walls ran over to tho shoal of tho
raps. Tho other was shorter. Inside
this wo began excavating. We used
dynamite, and in front of the lino wo
anchored a big, curiously shaped
dragwedge dredge. Tho submarine
ditch wo mado extended at right an
gles with a line drawn ,from Fort
Monroe to the raps and was about
1,000 feet in length. There was no
current there when we finished, and
tho water was 20 fathoms deep.
I began to see dimly, that we bad
changed the current and 6ent it over
tho old course through tho big mud
banks. Tho flood tide washing in
from tho capes met this current, and
at one stage of tho tide sent it in a
circle clear round tho raps.
Tho mud was finally brpkon up.
Tho water was roilly for oyer a
month. During that time we men
took a rest, but Peran spent most of
his fixing up an electrical apparatus
with a galvanometer. Ho lowered a
cable regular telegraph cable it was
and connected it-with the big iron,
wedge shqped dredgo, Then he fixed
up about a hundred glass jars into
an electric battery.
Jim Biddlo had uliargo of tho
dredge, and his instructions wero to
go out about half a milo toward tho
capes in a line with tho raps every
day and dredgo inward until past the
It was then Perari began to sit in
his cabin with his eyes on tho gal
vanometer. All at onco there appeared to be a
great change in tho lad. Ho was ir
ritablo and would allow no one in
his cabin. When I asked if he de
sired mo to go down to tho bottom
and take a look around, his eyes fair
y blazed, and he looked liko a young
panther about to spring. But all at
onco ho softened and reached out his
"No, Tom," he said quietly.
"There's no need. Wo aro near tho
tnd of our work."
For tho lifo of me I couldn't Bay if
he'd found treasure or not. You
could tell nothing from his face.
Well, we fctald there and swept
10 acres of the bottom with that
wedge shaped dredge, but never o
man was wnt down to too if wp had
raked anything into tho ditch we bad
made with tho dynamjto.
Then tho crew was iid off They
thought the whole thing a failure.
The schooner ran into Norfolk. The
dredge was broken up TheK-boonor
was 6nt back to New Bedford. Pe
ran took lodgings in town. Ho kept
me on at full g ana bom ior a
complete new outfit for two divers.
By this I knew we were not through
with the search. We aho got a new
machine for tending down air which
we QurelY 5934 control at the
bottom. Some of theeo things I don't
care to talk about, for he mode over
all the ideas to me, and I am going
to have thorn patented. I can give

Ho Beeaned to bo looking all tho
timo for letters, and at tho end of n
mouth a big envelope was brought
by a man who looked tho typical Span

Tho Spanish minister, tho snino
nice old follow who joked so with
Peran, camo down from Washington,
and tho threo wont into secret ses
sion. The result of tho "powwow" wns
apparent a week later. A Spanish
gunboat ran in under the lee of tho
capes and came to anchor. Wo went
aboard, and I'm blessed if tho whole
crow, officers and all, didn't turn out
to receive us and give us a salute.
Peran had a talk with tho captain,
and tho next day tho gunboat anchor
ed right over the Bpot where our
schooner used to He. Our traps wero
brought off in a boat, aud Peran him
solf went down to tho bottom every
day. He sent up in tho grappling
irons inside of threo weeks nearly
2.00Q bare of gold, each woighing
about 60 pounds, besides, several iron
boxes all mud and nearly rusted
through, One of tho Spanish chap3
told mo they wero full of diamonds
and such stuff, but Inovor saw thorn,
It was the neatest pieco of subma

and raked everything into our ditch
where it lny snug at tho bottoin.
And I m blessed il that there galvan

tho dredgo struck a bar of gold, so
that Peran sitting in his cabin in tho
