Notes on Ship


CaptureBG

His Majesty's Ship Narcissus, at sea, September 11, 1807.

My lord I have the honour to inform your Lordship, that this morning I fell in with and captured the Spanish Letter of Marque Brig Avantura, after a 4 hours chace with sweeps, it being nearly calm. She is a beautiful coppered vessel of 140 Tons, pierced for 18 guns, but carrying only 10, and 43 men ; appears well calculated for His Majesty's Service. She is 6 days from Bilbao bound to the Caraccas; she sails very fast.

I have the Honour to be, &c.

CHAS. MALCOLM.
