On the 2d Instant the Sunderland and Chester brought in a French Ship, called The Notre Dame de la Deliverance, Captain Pierre Litant ,  of 22 guns, and about 6o men, from Lima in the South Seas, for which place she sailed from Cadiz in the year 1741. She has on board in gold and silver upwards of 300000 Pounds Sterling, and a cargo of cocoa , peruvian wool , and Jesuits Bark. She come from Lima with two others, each of them much richer than this, and near the Banks of Newfoundland they met with 2 ships, which took the other South-Sea Men,while this with difficulty escaped.

They belonged to St Malo and there are two more in the South-Seas: one was coming with those taken but sprung a leak before they came round the Cape Horn and put back . The other is to come home next year .
