Notes on Ship


Description CaptureBG

Admiralty-Office, April 6, 1813.
Copy of a Letter from Captain Salt , of His Majesty's Ship Unicorn , addressed to Rear-admiral Sir Harry Neale , and transmitted by Admiral Lord Keith to John Wilson Croker, Esq.
His Majesty's Ship-Unicorn,
Sir , March 30, 1813. I beg leave to acquaint you , that His Majesty's ship Unicorn and Stag captured this day, in latitude 48 deg. 30 min. N. and longitude 6 deg. 30 min. W. the French privateer ship Miquelonnaise , belonging to St. Maloes , pierced for twenty guns ; mounted, two long twelve-pounders, eight long six-pounders, and eight twelve-pound carronades, with a complement of 130 men, out 4 days from Quimper; had taken a small brig, the Alexander, from. London, bound to Lisbon, with a cargo of tin and iron, which vessel she sunk. The Miquelonnaise is nearly four hundred tons, only six months old, copper-fastened , and is a very superior vessel of her class, and appears to be fit for His Majesty's service. His Majesty's ship Phoebe hove in sight at the latter part of the chace.
I have the honour to be, &c-.
(Signed) G. B. SALT, Captain.
