I have the pleasure tof say, that on the 1st instant,  off the Scaw, after a chace of 16 hours, I captured the Leger French Lugger Privateer, carrying four 4-pounders, who had the impudence to fire, at His Majesty's Ship under my command, and by the papers I found on board had 35 men, commanded by a Mons. Lallemand, who, with the crew, escaped on shore about 3 leagues to the Eastward of the Scaw, in fishhing boats. She had taken 3 vessels, and sent them to Arundel in Norway.
