|Name : Le Maraudeur (14)||Jean Armand Desprairies (1775-?)|
On the evening of December 7th, the Rinaldo, 10, Commander James Anderson , being off Dover, chased two French lugger privateers, and, having gained on one, the Maraudeur, 14, engaged her, and ran her on board. The Frenchmen, 85 in number, tried to rush on to the Rinaldo's deck, but were repulsed, though the brig's crew did not exceed 65 all told. The latter, indeed, under Lieutenant Edward Gascoigne Palmer, who received a slight wound, boarded presently in return, and carried the enemy without any loss of life. The Maraudeur had 5 wounded. The other lugger escaped into Calais.
