Notes on Ship


CaptureBG

Adamand, False Bay, Cape of Good Hope, May 26, 1806. 

SIR HAVE the honor to inform you of the arival of His Majesty's Ship under my command, at this anchorage, with the victuallers named in the Margin* (Alexander and Royal Charlotte) , accompanied by the Spanish Ship Nostra Senora de los Dolores, alias La Reparadora, of 30 guns,  (Twelve and Twenty-four-Pounders,) and 315 men, commanded by Stanislaus Comaud, an Officer in the Spanish Navy. We fell in with, and captured her on the 6th Instant, in Lat. 30 Deg. 30 Min. S and Long. 15 Deg. 20 Min W.

She had been out a month from Monte Video, in the Rio de la Plata, and had taken nothing. I have great satisfaction in announcing the capture of this ship to you, as from her magnitude and force, she might have done much mischief to the trade on the Coast of Africa ; her crew are a desperate set of French, Spaniards, Portuguese, and Americans, the principal Officers French : She had authority from the Vice-Roy to wear the colours of the King of Spain, and had a company of Spanish Infantry on board. She is a strong well built vessel, about 4 years old, coppered, and copper fastened, and is, in my opinion, well calculated for His Majesty's Service.

I have the honor to be, Sec.

JOHN STILES
