His Majesty's Ship Naiad, at Sea,

SIR, August 12, 1798.

I beg to make known to you, for the information of the Admiral Lord Bridport, that yesterday at 5 P. M. Cape Finisterre bearing E.S.E. 42 leagues distant, I captured in His Majesty's Ship under my command, after a chace of 4 hours, the French Settee Privateer La Tigre, mounting 8 carriage guns, 4-pounders, and 8 swivels, bearing a complement of 53 men ; 22 of that number had been sent into different vessels captured by Stephen Bonaventure Aggaret, the Commander of La Tigre since his sailing from Groire (Groix ?) 10 days ago.

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

W. PIERREPONT
