Notes on Ship


CaptureBG

His Majesty's Ship Triton, Cawfand-Bay, January 5, 1799.

My Lord , agreeable to the orders which I received from Sir Harry Neale, I have returned to Cawfand-Bay in the Triton. A few days ago, after I parted company with the St. Fiorenzo, I captured a French Privateer Brig of 14 guns and 64 men, just come out of Corunna, and was bound on a cruize off the Western Islands ; she is new off the stocks, coppered, and sails well; this, with the 2 Brigs I captured in company with Sir Harry Neale, is the amount of our success.

I have the Honor to be, &c. &c. &c.

EDW. GRIFFITH
