Notes on Ship


CaptureBG

MY LORD, Phœnix, at Sea, June 18, 1800.

Beg leave to acquaint your Lordship, that early yesterday morning bearing off the Hyères Islands, and little wind , I send Lieutenant Thompson with the boats of HIS Majesty's Ship Phoenix in chace of a small vessel standing in for Hyères Bay , at 9 A. M. they captured her: She proved to be La Revanche French National Vessel, coppered, mounting 4 carriage guns and 4 swivels, with 27 men, partly laden with Brandy, Wine, Cheese, and Pork, 2 days from Toulon, and bound to Malta with dispatches, which were thrown overboard.

I am sorry to add, that in capturing the above vessel we lost 1 man ; and unfortunately this morning, it blowing strong, she overset, but happily no lives lost.

I have the Honor to be, &c. &c. &c.

L.W. HALSTED
