Notes on Action


DescriptionTRN4
Bowen, whether by accident or design, found the Santisima Trinidad at 7 P.M. on February 28th. On March 1st, although he was then alone, he pluckily engaged her. He was naturally unable to effect much against his huge antagonist, but he nevertheless kept company with her until, off Cape Spartel, she fell in with part of the Spanish fleet.
