Copy of a letter from Vice-Admiral Kingsmill, Commander of His Majesty's Ships and Vessels at Cork, to Evan Nepean, Esq, dated on board His Majesty's Ship Polyphemus, Cork Harbour, April 3, 1797.
SIR, Please to acquaint my Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, that, on intelligence brought me of a cruizer of the enemy's having been seen off the Skellocks, I immediately dispatched Captain Ruddach, in the Hazard, on the 28 th Ult. to scour that coast ; and on the 1st Instant he fortunately fell in with, and captured, Le Hardi Brig Privateer, of 18 guns and 130 men, from Brest, a remarkable fast failing vessel, with which he has just returned here.
Inclosed is his letter to me on the subject.
I have the Honor to be, &c. &c.
