Maltv Lazareta, Jugttft 22, 1746. WITH the utmoft Concern I give you an Account of our lofing the Pearl. On the nth of July* at Break of Day in the Morning, we law a Fleet of French Merchantmen, under Convoy of three Sail of Men of War, about five or fix Leagues off Cape Matapan *- as it was calm, and not the leaft Probability of getting any one of them, and thinking it advife-able in us to clear the way, we got out our Oars j but all to no purpofe:' For the LaFiere, a 66 Gun Ship, with 6go Men ; and the La Flore, (which is the very Ship that we fought off Mahone on the lft of January laft) gave us Chaee, they bringing a Breeze ug with them, un-^ til to in the Morning, when the Commodore hoifted his Colours, and fiVd at us \ we hoifted our Colours, bat fir'd no Gun, as we intended to keep our Guns cool until we found his Shot reach'd Us. At 11 we found hi? Shot went Qver us, and the La Flore on our Lee Quarter playing her two Tier at {as 3 we fir'd our Stern Chace at the Commodpre, which were two 12 and two 9 Pounders, and our Larboard Broadfide at the La Fiore, and continued fo till four o'Cloek in the Afternoon, during which time the Commodore plied his whole Broadfide upon us as faff as he coald load ; and as they went three Foot for our one, and by this Time they were along-fide of us* with his Lower Tier pointed into us, and the La Flore likewife, we thought it belt to ftrike ; fince fighting longer cetukLonly hive funk the' Ship and us; and a little more would have done it, for we could hardly keep her free* to flog the Holes betwist Wind andWater. Our Captain and Officers were ordered on board the Commodore, and were mod nobly received by him, to whom our Captain otierd bis Sword, Cane and Watch ; bat'he generoufy. refold them, Wh thts Compliment, IbM Treatment ax his Power waj goad enough for Gen-\ tlemen of fuch Bravery. Our Fiift Lieutenant and I were fent on board the La Flore, where we were entertained in the politeft manner by the Captain and his Officers.---In the Engagement our Wadds being fcarce, the ftrongeft Boys that attended the Guns got them, when the little ones could not find any; but afterwards thefe laft made Wadds of their Caps, Trowzers, &c. Which when the Lieutenant of the La Flore anderftood, he ordered them Caps immediately; and faid, Nothing cculd give greater Pleafure than jm,h Eehatihur. ' The Coiffmodofe had 39 Men killed, and. above 30 wounded. One of our Shot fplit one of his Upper-Deck Guns, and kill'd thirteen.-That Ball was true Englifh Metal; and I wife every Ball in! Englandf was as well fold.-The La Flore had 27 Men kill'd, above 46 wounded, and two Guns knock'd to Pieces. The Gunner^of tne La Flore's Report of Round S&afc 'fir'd at us, Sefid'es Grapes, Crofs-bar, &c. were 472, and I believe the Commodore fir'd many more.   They had 950'in both Ships ; and we had but 174 Men and Boys, 44 of which were wonnded, * and believe fhall lofe about ' 28, "which are very dangeroufly wonnded.-In the firft Engagement we had with the La Flore, in January* we kill'd 70 of her Men, and wounded 60, lam* &c.
