DescriptionTRN4 On the Jamaica station Commodore John Ford was encouraged by Royalist overtures from San Domingo to attempt Jeremie and St. Nicolas Mole. Taking on board troops at Port Royal on September 9th, he proceeded, with his broad pennant in the Europa, 50, Captain George Gregory, to Jeremie, where he arrived on September 19th. Accompanying him were the Goelan, 14, Commander Thomas Wolley and the Flying Fish, schooner. The British were welcomed with joy, and the place was taken possession of in the name of the French crown. On the 21st the Commodore was off St. Nicolas Mole, which was found to be in expectation of an assault from a body of blacks and mulattoes. He induced the place to capitulate; and, later in the year, he received the surrender of other towns in the island, including Leogane.
