Notes on Ship


CaptureBG

Rear- Admiral Sir E. Pellew, Bart, tsc. &c. Va 

His Majesty's Ship Powerful, Buck-Bay , Trincomale, June 15, 1806.

SIR , I have the honour to inform that, pursuant to your orders, I left Madras Road early on the 4th Instant and arrived at this anchorage in the forenoon of the 11th. Having received intelligence that the Privateer, whole description you favoured me with, had been seen but a few days since in the neighbourhood of Batecato.

I put to sea again in the afternoon, and being close in with the land, a breast of friard hood, the following evening, I continued standing to the Southward, under easy sail, all night; at day-break of the 13th. we discovered a ship on the Lee Quarter, with the courses up, on the opposite tack, aud had soon the pleasure to be convinced, by her appearance and manœuvres, that it was the ship we were in search of. After a chace of 11 hours, during the last hour of which she continued bring her stern-chaces to over us, (happily without effect,) the enemy struck his colours and brought to. The ship proved to be La Henriette, mounting 20 guns, 4 12-pounder carronades, 2 9-pounders and 14 6-pounders, (4 of the latter were hove over during the chace,) having on board 124 men, including officers. She sailed from the Isle ot France on the 7th of April.

I have the Honour to be, &c.

R. PLAMPIN
