In May 1901, orders came for the battery to return to Manila. Afterwards, an order came for the battery to return to San Francisco on the Pak Ling, a fast tea ship, as a guard for some hundred prisoners. Only the personnel were to go on board, leaving horses, guns, and equipment behind. On June 30, Charles Summerall told General Mordecai that he wanted to marry his daughter. August 14 was the fixed date for the wedding. The ceremony took place at noon before a flower-draped, improvised altar in the large house of the commanding officer of the arsenal. Then the reception and the lunch followed on the beautiful lawn. The whole setting was like a paradise. Charles' promotion to captain took place on July 1.
