CaptureBG

Pigmy Cutter, Portland-Road, SIR, January 9, 1799

I have the honor to acquaint you, that yesterday noon, Durlstone-Head bearing N. W. 2 miles, I observed a Cutter and Two Brigs off St. Aldan's, standing to the Southward, and immediately gave chace. At 40 minutes past 1, came up, and retook the Brig Lark, Francis Artis, Master, from Cardiff to London, laden with Bar Iron and the Brig Dion, Esdras Best, Master, from Cardiff to London, laden with the same. Continued the chace, and at 4 captured the French Cutter Privateer La Rancune, commanded by Ant. Fran. Vic. Jos. Panpeville, manned with 21 men, and carrying 2 swivel guns , small arms, &c from Cherbourg 26 hours , had made no other capture than the 2 Brigs before-mentioned which she had taken that morning .

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

W. SHEPHEARD
