Professor Marion accompanied Rear Admiral Sigsbee's squadron on its voyage to France and its return to this country with the body of John Paul Jones. He gives an account of the incidents of the expedition; of the search for the body of John Paul Jones, and its discovery and identification; and a description of the exercises in honor of the great Commodore, when the body was taken to Annapolis.
The book contains also a short history of the Naval Academy, with illustrations showing many of the new buildings.
Among the interesting features of the book are facsimiles of original manuscripts connected with John Paul Jones' voyages.
"It was fortunate," said General Horace Porter, "that Professor Marion accompanied the expedition and became its historian. His participation in the imposing ceremonies incident to the transfer of the remains of the illustrious naval commander from Paris to the picturesque military harbor of Cherbourg and thence to Annapolis eminently qualify him for writing his graphic account of John Paul Jones' Last Cruise.
"His work describes the scenes and incidents from the vantage ground of an eye witness, and the book will be read with interest, not only on account of its accuracy, but because of the attractive manner in which he has told the story."
