Notes on Ship

From Naval Wars in the Baltic during the sailing-ship epoch 1522-1850 BY R C ANDERSON

"A very similar affair took place on September 2nd, when the English sloops Chanticleer 10 and Manly 12 were engaged by the Lolland 18, Alsen 18, and Samse 18 near Arendal. The Chanticleer first attacked the Sams0, but soon withdrew altogether, pursued by the Sams0 and Alsen. The Manly engaged the Lolland from 4 a.m. onwards, and after about two hours the two other Danish brigs also joined in this action. Against such odds the Manly could do nothing, and she soon struck her colours."
