LONDON. ^xtraS of a Letter from on hoard the Rochester Mer-cbantman, dated Nov. 22, off the Bayonne IJlands. T Have this Opportunity by the Saphire Man of War, \ Capt. Holmes, of advifing you, that the Day before Yefterday we met with a Spanish Privateer, a large Schooner, who I judged to have had at leaft 80 Men aboard, with 8 Carriage and 16 Swivel Guns, who boarded me immediately, but by the Help of my little Ship's Company, who behaved like Englifhmen, after having fought him an Hoar and half, Board and Board, he thought proper to re-tire,~%nd leave me at Liberty to purfoe my Voyage : We have two Crofs-Bar Shot through our Main-Matt, and fe-veral in our Hull; but the principal Damage is poor Ogil-vie, (my Mate) who in throwing a Shell into the Enemy, (battered His Hand fo much, that the Surgeon of the Saphire was obliged to cut it off j and the Misfortune was ftill greater, lb at this Accident happened before we was quite grappled with the Veffels, fo that I was deltitute of his Affiflance all (he Height of the Engagement; I have two more much wounded. Had I not fortunately met with the Saphire, I muft have loft my Main-Malt, and Ogilvie his Life. Captain Holmes has been very obliging m fparing me his Carpenters to fee are my Mafts, and repair my other Damages; as likewife fome Materials ; I can't prevail upon nim to go eff the Bar with me, he being bound Home. The Wind is now contrary, and in all Probability it will be along Time before we beat up to Port; he has laid by me all Day to affift me, and is joft now going to leave me. I have the Mortification to add after this good News, that four of ray People being wounded, and there being only 16 left, four of which are not able to fire a Mufqoet, that my Men are much dilheartenedi efpecially as the Privateer is gopc into his own Port again, and will probably pay us another Vifit, petbftps attended with a Companion. We muft ftartrialie^fcfa*)^ hisDeck' being full of Blood. I could have wiihed to have wrote this News from Fort; but let what will happen, you may allure yourfelf that I will never give up the Ship tamely. I am, &c. We are allured, that in Cafe the W>r Ihould continue next Year, a certain great Officer, as remarkable for his Regard to his Country, as his Underftanding in Military Affairs, has form'd a Plan of Operations which is greatly approved of, and mult in all Probability difconcert the Mea-faresof the Court of France.
