Overview

The story begins aboard a British steamer, Sirius, leaving South Hampton on its way to Bermuda. A young boy, Alex, whose father is secretary to the American Ambassador in London, is traveling with Angus, a close friend of the Ambassador. Also aboard are two agents of the U.S. War Department. It's a time just before the beginning of the Civil War in the U.S. Unknown to Alex, Angus is carrying a secret letter to the next President of the U.S., Abraham Lincoln. The letter tells how to set up a naval blockade of Southern ports. The War Department's agents, supporters of the Southern cause, are aboard to find and destroy the secret letter. Many exciting adventures begin with Alex and Angus being taken off the Sirius to be detained in Charleston, South Carolina, followed by an escape aboard the Underground Railroad; protection from bounty hunters in a Safe House; sailing down the Cape Fear River, on up to Richmond, Virginia; meeting up with Abner Lowe, the balloon maker, and finally landing by balloon on the steps of the White House to deliver their letter to Lincoln.
