Copy of a letter from Captain George Scott, of His Majesty's Sloop Albatross, to Evan Nepean, Ejq; dated Nore, September 21, 1797.
BE pleased to inform my Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, that on the 8th Instant, the Naze of Norway N. E. 28 Leagues, being a great distance in the rear of the convoy, under charge of His Majesty's Ship Leopard, I discovered, chaced and captured a Dutch Privateer Schooner: called the Brave (commanded by Hendrick Meyers Ditlefs) mounting 5 carriage guns and 8 Swivels, complement 40 men, but had only 25 on board when taken. The above Privateer sailed from Egeroe in Norway, on the 2 Instant, but had not taken any thing.
