DescriptionTRN4 The Spanish 28-gun frigate Santa Margarita was sighted in the afternoon by Commodore George Johnstons off Finisterre. The Tartar, 28, Captain Alexander Graeme, was ordered to give chase, and came up with her at four o'clock, when, after a broadside or two, seeing that escape was hopeless in the face of the British squadron, she struck with four killed or wounded. The Tartar did not lose a man; but she suffered some damage, as, during the action, the Spaniard fell on board her, carrying away her rnizen topsail yard. The Santa Margarita carried twenty-six 12-prs. and two 6-prs., with two hundred and seventy men. She was purchased into the British service under the same name.
