Notes on Ship


Admiralty-Office, July 2, 1782,

Extract of a letter from Captain Guyot, Commander of His Majesty's Sloop Lark, to Mr. Stephens dated Kinsale, June 24, 1782.

On the 22d Instant, off the Land's End, in company with the Viper Cutter, I perceived a cutter in the West Quarter: We gave chace, and at 1 o'Clock brought her to. She proves to be the Sea Lyon, a Dutch Privateer, from Flushing, last from Cherbourg, pierced for 12 Guns,  3-pounders, only 8 on board, and 50 men ; had taken a sloop between Lyme and Weymouth
