Admiralty-Office, June 27, 1797.

Extract of a letter from Captain Gunter, of His Majesty's Sloop Nautilus, to Evan Nepean, Esq; dated at Sea, off Flackery in Norway, June 12,  1797

I Beg you will be pleased to inform my Lords  Commissioners of the Admiralty, that this morning His Majesty's Sloop Nautilus, under my command and Fox Hired Cutter, after a chace of 10 hours , captured the Brutal a Dutch Lugger Privateer, of 6 guns and 32 menand the Syren French Cutter Privateer, of Six Guns and 27 men, who were cruizing in company for the Homeward-Bound Baltic Convoy.

The catching these 2 vessels gives me much pleasure, as they have infested this coast several months, and done an infinite deal of mischief.
