Notes on Ship


CaptureBG

Phaeton, off l'Isle Dieu, September 18, 1797.

My Lord, Have the honor to inform your Lordship, that the Unite last night captured a French Brig Privateer, called La Brunette, pierced for 16 guns and carrying 10, (8 of which were thrown overboard in chace) and 80 men. La Brunette had sailed from Bordeaux only 2 days, and is completely fitted for a long cruize.

I have the Honor to be, &c.

ROB. STOPFORD
