Notes on Action

The Spartan, 38, Captain Jahleel Brenton, Success, 32, Captain John Ayscough, and Espoir, 18, Commander Robert Mitford, being to the eastward of Monte Circeo, discovered a ship, three barks, and several feluccas at anchor under the castle of Terracina. The boats of the squadron were therefore sent in under Lieutenants William Augustus Baumgardt and George Rose Sartorius, supported by the fire of the men-of-war, and, in spite of much resistance, took, and brought off, the ship and the three barks, with a loss of only 1 killed and 2 wounded.
