' letter fnm Mr. Collier, Third Lieutenant of thji St. f^esrge Privateer, Capt. Mederoft, dated FaMou$+jSepj.f$. ' On Saturday laft. about 11 o'clock we Taw a Sair to   when we were quite ready, we tackt; but asfoon as ever. ' our Ship was about, he was the fame, and bore down up-1 on uj, with a French Enfign Flying.   Capt. Mederoft 1 afk'il the Officers and People, if they were willing to 'light? they anfwer'd, They were; and about two in 1 tie Afternoon we began.   They poured theUXjreat and ' Small Shot like Rain into u�, and as far as was poffible 1 for Men to do, ours return'd the fame to them.   Our 1 Captain and two Lieutenants behav'd in the mod cou-' -ragious Manner poffible, encouraging our People to the 1 lilt Moment not to quit their Guns.   Bat as we had fe-1 vtral of our Men wounded, one kiL'd, our Main-yard, ' Sheets Brace?, Sec. (hot away, there was no Poffibility 1 of working the Veffel any longer, and, I am forry to ' fay it, we were obliged to ftrike to tbem.   Our Captain 'direftly went on board, with our two Lieutenants and ' Gunner, Lieutenant of Marines, Steward, Doftor and his ' two Matej, and every able Hand we. had, except the ' Boatfwain.   The French Lieutenant and Peop'ecame on ' board us, but plunder'd very little, except a few Cloaths.; ' but not iatisfied with the poor Condition they reduced us ' to, they cut away what Rigging we had left, and direft-' ly made all the Sail they could from us.   In the Engage-' ment 1 had the Misfortune to have a Ball enter at the ' Top of my Right Shoulder and out again, about feveri* ' Inches down my Arm, which render'd me quite incapa-' b!e of farther Duty.   Mr. Chriitian, the Lieutenant, had ' a Ball thro* his Thigh, but notwithftanding he went on ' board the Frenchman, for 1 believe every one thought ' we could not fwim long.   We had one .Man kilPd, and ' another died next Day, and 12 more wounded ; fome, I ' fear, dangeroufly.   I was determined not to quit the Ship ' till I was forced, fo kept very quiet in my Cabbin, and ' the Moment I had" an Opportunity, I fent to fearch ' what Water we had, and, to my very great Joy, found ' very little, confidering we had one Shot betwixt Wind and Water. I then began to.have fome Mope of feeing 1 England again, but our People had made themfelves fo very drunk that I had hot above two or three, which I could depend upon. I judge we were about 20 Leagues to the South-Weft of Scilly. I could get nothing done that Night, but next Morning the Boatfwain, who Capt. Sutherland had fpared us fome Time ago, got fome of them to repair the Rigging a'little, and we juft made a Shift to hoiftour Fore-yard, get our Fore-fail fet, and Topfail upon the Cap, for the Vard was almoft fhot thro' on the Starboard Side. When we had got the Length of Scilly I made proper Signals for a Pilot, and got one who. brought us fafe into this Harbour 3 Yefterday. Morning. Oar People have all got a Notion that the St. George and Sto�s belong to them, but! immediately got one Mrv4anKs,.a Merchant of this Place, to be Agent for us, as there was no one here of yoor appointing, and I expecting every Moment our People to carry off "her Stores. �. � I have done to the utmoft of my Power; a^cl jhall con- * tinue as,long as I am able to aft in every T^|�Jbr"the * Intereft of the Gentlemen cohcera'df an^^^e^ St. ' Georgetis not likely $0 .be in a( Conditw^fqtthe Sea ' again fbon, I have ordered out all her Guris%i(d Pro- * vifions, except as much as* I think will fervevthe few '.
