HISTORY -- The ST. PAUL and its sister ship, the ST. LOUIS, were ocean liners sailing with American Lines which were converted to "swift auxiliary cruisers" during the war. While serving in this role the ST. PAUL captured the British steamer RESTORMEL bound for Santiago, and the sailing vessel WARY bound for Manzanillo. Also, she disabled the Spanish torpedo boat destroyer Terror. The ST. PAUL and ST. LOUIS steamed between England and New York for the American Lines. These ships were very successful a liners, in spite of their smaller size and lesser luxury than many contemporary foreign vessels.
