If you go to the main page of this site, http://cssvirginia.org, then click on Historical Documents, then click on CSS Virginia, and then scroll down to the entry for Elsberry Valentine White, you will find a transcription of that document on the link from "The First Iron-Clad Naval Engagement".
By "popular" accounts, I suspect you mean the accounts from the Northern papers. The Southern accounts are consistent and this is one example. From the Historical Documents section you can find links to a number of these accounts.
