Notes on Ship


CaptureBG

Copy of a Letter from Captain Tyler to the Earl St. Vincent, dated on Board His Majefiy's Ship L'Aigle, Tagus, September 7, 1797.

My Lord, I have the honour to inform your Lordship, that on the 30th of July last, off Cape Finisterre, the Boston in company, we captured a French Lugger, called the Hazard, of 8 guns, and 50 men, belonging to Bayonne, and last from Corunna; made no captures. August the 13th last I captured the French Lugger La Manche, 8 guns and 8 swivels, and 49 men, belonging to Nantes; out 13 days, made no captures. On the 17th of the same month, observing 2 vessels working into the Bay of Lax, I ordered the Lugger to cut them out. The weather not proving favourable one of them, a Brig laden with rice, could not be brought off. I took the rice out and burnt the vessel. The property was Spanish, bound for Corunna.

I have the Honour to be, &c. &c. Sec.

CHA. TYLER.
