Notes on Ship


Admiralty-Office, February 18, 1797.

Copy of a letter from Captain Halsted, Commander of His Majesty's Ship Phœnix, to Evan Nepean, Esq; dated at Sea, February 11, 1797.

SIR, I pleased to acquaint their Lordships, that the "Jeune Emilie", a French Privateer Brig, of 10 guns and 62 men, was captured by His Majesty's Ship Triton this evening. She has been only 40 days from St Malo, has taken an English Sloop called the Friendship, from Lisbon to Liverpool, with fruit and an English Ship Letter of Marque, of 10 Nine-Pounders and 21 men, called the Battalion, from Liverpool to Jamaica, after an Action of three quarters of an hour.

I have also to acquaint you, for their Lordships further information, that the Triton captured the French Privateer Cutter Recovery, of 14 guns and 46 men, on the 10th instant, whish had been a few days from Havre and had taken an English Smuggler, and an American Ship bound to Bombay the latter was retaken a few hours afterwards by the Stag.

I have the Honor to be, &c
