Probably the finest book on the Yangtze Patrol from beginning to end is Yangtze Patrol, by Kemp Tolley.
Tolley was an officer aboard USS Mindanao, and was there when Panay was attacked.
I have a small collection of naval ship covers,
I have attached one from USS Monocacy mailed from Hankow, China in 1938.
It contains a memoriam for USS Panay-
Sorry for the poor quality-
