Extract of a letter from Vice-Admiral Drake, Commander in Chief of His Majesty's Ships and Vessels in the Downes, to Mr. Stephens, dated on board the Rippon, January 24, 1783.
The Brazen and Busy Cutters arrived this morning , and brought in with them a Privateer Brig belonging to Dunkirk, named Le Cartouche, Jacque Rivou, Commander, mounting 8 4-pounders and 6 swivels and 45 mens . She had been 3 days from Dunkirk, and, when the Cutters fell in with her, had just taken a ship from New York, last from Portsmouth. Lieutenant Edmonstone, upon finding the master of the ship on board the Privateer, ordered the Busy Cutter to pursue her ; unfortunately she could not come up with her before she got into Calais Harbour.
