    " The JAVA's surgeon, Thomas Cooke Jones, says: 'I saw him (Captain Lambert) almost immediately afterward, and found that the ball had entered his left side under the clavicle, fracturing the first rib, the splinters of which had severely lacerated the lungs. I put my finger in the wound, detached and extricated several pieces of the bone. He said that he felt no annoyances from the wound in his breast, but complained of pain extending the whole length of his spine.'

    Captain Lambert died of his wounds.
