Extract of a letter from Captain Inglis, Commander of His Majesty's Ship the Squirrel, to Mr. Stephens, dated at Falmouth, June 26, 1782.
Be pleased to inform my Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, that I fell in with a Cutter off the Land's End, the 21st Instant, and after a chace of 16 hours, took her ; she proves to be L'Amaible Manon, mounts 8 guns and 42 men, had been from Brest 14 days, and had taken nothing. I beg you will further inform their Lordships, that on the 25th Instant I fell in with, and retook, the Penelope Schooner, belonging to Liverpool, laden with sugar and salt; she was taken by L'Escamoteur French Privateer, on the 23d Instant, going into Waterford.
