Second voyage and loss

Duff at Rio Janiero (sic) in 1799
Captain Thomas Robson and Duff left Britain on 20 December 1798. She was carrying a second group of 30 missionaries for the South Pacific.[9]

The French privateer Grande Buonaparte captured Duff on 19 February 1799 off Cape Frio near Rio de Janeiro.[Note 3] Her captors took Duff to Montevideo, Uruguay, where they released her crew and passengers. The missionaries finally arrived back at London on 5 October 1799.[9]

Her captors sold Duff. Subsequently, Portuguese privateers captured Duff, only to lose her to French privateers. Her subsequent fate is currently unknown.[
