Notes on Ship


CaptureBG

His Majesty's Sloop Kingfisher, off Cape St Juan, April 11, 1805.

SIR , 2 boats from the ship under my command, under the direction of Lieutenants Standish and Smith, brought out from the anchorage of the above Cape the Damas Spanish Privateer, pierced for 4 guns, mounting only 1 8-pounder, 40 muslcets, with a crew of 57 men. Though the crew made some resistance both from the vessels and on shore, I have the pleasure to add it was without loss. She was equipped 10 days ago at Cumana, for a cruize off Demerary ; this is her first and unsuccessful effort.

I am, &c.

W. R. CRIBB, Commander.
