circa 12th June 1779. (source Newcastle Chronicle 19th June 1779)
"Last week six ships belonging to Lynn, were taken by two French Privateers, for the Naise of Norway. The Catharine of Dysart, Capt.Alex Ramsay, from Memel to Dysart, was taken the 7th inst. about 30 leagues to the westward of the Naise of Norway, by the Dunkerquoise, Capt.Morel, and ransomed for 400gs. There was another privateer in company, the one mounted 20 and the other 18 guns; theytook along with the Catharine six English ships; two from Riga were sent for Dunkirk; the other four ransomed, one for 1500, and another for 1100gs &c. There were some other vessels in sight when the provateer left the Catarine. - it is a pity that our trading vessels should be picked up by our insidious enemies, while so many armed ships &c. lye totally inactive in harbours.
