Notes on Action

On October 21st 1813, the Achates, 16, Commander Isaac Hawkins Morrison, fell in with the Trave, and made sail in chase. The brig pluckily engaged the frigate, but finally lost her in a squall at night. On the afternoon of the 23rd the Trave encountered the Andromache, 36, Captain George Tobin, and sustained a running fight with her for about an hour, hauling down her colours as the Eurotas, 38, Captain John Phillimore, approached from the N.E. The Andromache lost only 2 wounded, including Lieutenant Thomas Dickinson. The Trave had 1 killed and 25 wounded, besides 2 wounded in the fight with the Achates, which had no one hurt.
