In his Paffage he fell in with four large Ships and two Polaccoes, which. he chafed and difcovered to be French Men of War, and by the beft Obfervations he could make, found them to be a Squadron under M. de Lage from Toulon. As the Commodore had the Bomb-Veffels and their Tenders under Convoy, he made the beft of his Way to Cagliari, but going round the South End of Sardinia, he fell in with the fame Number of Ships a-gain, whoa he chafed, till he was plainly convinced they were the fame, and that they had been lurking about him in order to pick up his Convoy, which however he presented, by carrying them fafe into Cagliari, where he left diem.
