Extract of a letter from Charles Town, South Carolina, March 21

Yesterday arrived the brigantine Friendship, George Best, Master, who was taken the 24th of January by the Amararthe privateer of St Malo's, Claude Dominique Airie, and ransomed.

The London Chronicle, Saturday May 9, 1761

Captain of the privateer is almost certainly Claude Dominique Avice, who is known to be based at St Malo.

Sorry, due to a spate of spam I have had to reinstate the Captcha. I know it's a pain and will update to a better solution soon.
You only have to pass this once per session though, once passed you will not see it again for a while.
