Notes on Officer


letter from the Minister of Marine to M. Hubert, Intendant of Marine at DunkirkB177

18th September, 1676. Versailles



His Majesty has learnt with the greatest satisfaction that the Dunkirk Corsair commanded by Captain Jean Bart, has captured a Dutch man-of-war mounting thirty-two guns. As it is most important to encourage these Corsair captains in their efforts against the Dutch, his Majesty is pleased to direct that you will present the accompanying gold chain to Captain Jean Bart as a reward for the gallant action he has just performed.
