Description CaptureBG

His Majesty's Ship Flora, at Sea,
SIR , June 23 , 1800. I Have the pleasure to inform you, that last night I felt in with and captured the Spanish Ship Packet Cortez , belonging to the King of Spain, commanded by Don Joseph Suaros Quiros , pierced for 14 guns with only 4 mounted, and 44 men, is copper-bottomed, from Rio de la Plata 98 days , ( bound to Corunna, with a cargo of cocoa, hides, tallow, &c. and some specie : she threw her mail overboard upon our hailing her. She is of such value that I thought it necessary to see her safe off the Bar of Lisbon, but will lose no time in putting your further orders in execution.
I have the honor to be, Sir, &c.
