CaptureBG

His Majesty's Ship Cerberus, off the East , End of Jamaica, 15 th May

Sir I beg leave to acquaint, that this morning, as I was standing towards Jamaica, with  a convoy under my charge bound to that Island, I discovered, at dawn of day, a vessel of a  suspicious appearance hovering about the Fleet; I stood towards her, when she immediately hauled her wind, under a press of sail ; upon which I gave chace, and in 2 hours had the good fortune to come up with and capture her. She proves to be La Amable Theresa, belonging to St. Jago de Cuba, rmed with 2 Brass Howitzers, and 18 men, and containing a cargo of wine and merchandize, put 3 days from St. Jago de Cuba. I feel much satisfaction in having it in my power ,to communicate to you the capture of the above vessel, as in the event of her escape She must have proved a great annoyance to the Trade of this island and particuluary the large convoy under my command

I have the honor to be ..

W.SHELBY
