Grenada E.N.E. 11 leagues, His Majesty's Sloop King's Fisher. Dec. 29, 1804.
A chace of 6 hours S.W to this situation,enabled the Sloop I command to capture Les Deux Amis French Schooner Privateer , pierced for 8 guns, only 2 on board as captured, the remainder thrown overboard ;her crew 39 men, commanded by Francis Dutrique, 10 days from Guadaloupe, her first and unsuccessful cruize.

I am, &c.
