DescriptionTRN5 On March 27th, the French privateer Egyptienne, 36, which had been so severely handled by the Osprey, was captured by the Hippomenes, 14, Commander Conway Shipley. She was chased for fifty-four hours, and then engaged in a running fight for three hours and twenty minutes, but ceased all resistance and struck as soon as the Hippomenes got alongside her. Shipley very generously attributed this result to the sharp punishment she had received from the Osprey. Only one man was wounded in the British ship. The Egyptienne became the British prison ship Antigua.
