James Talbot, Commander of the Prince Frederick Privateer, dated at Kin/ale, July 31. Dear Sir, WE failed from Cowes the 2d of June in Company with the Duke, Prince George, and feveral Ships laden with Wheat for this Country; the 5th I was obliged to lie off Dartmouth and fend a Boat on Shore to fee if I could get Sailor ; the Wind being fair the Corn Ships proceeded ; and on the Boats returning at Night without any Men, I made fail. The 7th we faw a Sail, on which I made a Signal for all to chace ; but we had not long been at it when the moft melancholy Accident happened that can be reprefented ; the Prince George, with double-reeff Top-fail and no Wind of Confequence, overfet. I run immediately to her Affiftance ; but was not able to fave more.than twenty Men out of a hundred and thirty-four. Among the drowned was my Dear brave Nephew Gregory Talbot, and Doctor Hackett. Never did any Thing (hock me fo much, but I thank God I had Refignation enough to fubmit to his Will. The 20th I made St. Mary's, one of the Weftern Iflands. I ftood away to the Weftward to cruize between the faid Illands and the great Bank of Newfoundland, and did not fee any thing from the 16th, (when I met the Lifbon and Oporto Fleet) till July the 10th, between five and fix in the Morning? when we faw three fail bearing Weft, the Wind atS.S.E. aBd fmooth Water, we bore down on them, and they making little Account of us, kept their Wind. A little paft feven I fired a Gun at them, when up went their White Rag, and formed a Line. The Duke being a little too hafty went to Windward and fired away. I bore to Leeward of the nexr Ship to me within Piftol-fhot: In that manner we entertained each other three Hours. Their Captain being for blowing up the Ship was mortally wounded, on which fhe ftruck. Here I loft poor Curtis, doing his Duty like a good Officer ; he was fhot thro' the Heid with a Cannen-Ball. Whilit I had to do with this Ship, the largeft of ail having got on my off Bow, put me between two Fires ; however having taken one, I loft no Time, but went and returned the largeft his Vifit; at the fame time the fmalleft crowded away. I gave Orders to the Duke to chace her, which accordingly fhe did ; whilit I undertook to give an Account of the fecond. I thought I fliould not have had much to do, as the one I was engaged with was left alone ; but I found my Miftake, for they kept me near three Hours at warm Work, when their Captain being mortally wounded, fhe ftruck. The Captain of the Duke, feeing Night coming on, and looking Dirty, and that I would be puzzled to manage two Ships fo difabled, he quitted the Chace, or we fhould have had the third. When my Boat returned from the laft Ship I took, I was agreeably fur-prized at being acquainted by the firft Officer Prifoner who came on board, that they came from Callao in Peru, having till then taken them for Martinico-Men. The firft I took, (and which I ordered the Duke when he came back to take. Poffeffion of) is called the Marquis D'Antin, Burthen 450 Tons and 24. Guns, Capt. Magon Sepere; the other the El Lewis Herafme, Burthen 500 Tons and 28 Guns, Capt. Pedro Levigne Lueneli; fhe that efcaped was called Noftre Dame de Liberance, Burthen 300 Tons and 18 Guns, Capt. Pedro Litan ; thefe two we have taken has in Gold and Plate about three Million of Dollars, befides a Loading of Cocoa ; they would have been much richer had their Goods fold, but they left two Thirds unfold, they will turn out bstween 7 and 800,000 I. Sterling, no bad Beginning, had it not been for that Misfortune of the Prince George over-fetting, we fhould have made a moft delightful Campaign of it; but 'tis tolerable well, only for the Lofs of the poor People, I had five Men killed and 25 wounded. Young Mafterfon, who was along with Commodore Anfon, has behaved to Admiration, a great Part of our gaining the Day is due to him. To conclude, I tore the Ships fo with my 1 z Pounders above and below, that the next Day the Weather coming on bad, we were obliged to throw the laft Prize's Guns and her Anchors Overboard, to keep her a-bove Water j they loft all their Malls, and we have been obliged to Tow them ever fince ; Thanks be to the Almighty, we arrived here Yefterday in the Afternoon.
