His Majesty's Sloop Elk, Lucea, SIR, May 12, 1806.
Have the honor, to inform you, that having received intelligence off St. Ann's, the evening of the 4th Instant, there was a small Spanish Privateer qn the Coast which had captured Two Droggers thinking it most probable they would stand over to Cuba in the night, we made sail to the Northward, and on the evening of the 5th, were so fortunate as to fall in with them off Cape Cruz, to retake 1 of the Droggers, and to capture La Cubana Spanish Row-Boat Privateers armed with 1 swivel and small arms; had been 5 days from St. Jago, her crew originally consisted of 14 men, but he had only 5 on board when captured.
I am, &c. . .
