Extract of a Letter from Capt. Thomas Hamilton, commanding the Sea Fencibles at Margate, to Evan Nepean, Esq. dated the 9 Mar 1799 : I have the honour to acquaint you, that yesterday morning, about ten o'clock, a small cutter was observed boarding two brigs eight or nine miles from the North Foreland. The wind being to the eastward, with a flood tide, prevented the Camperdown cutter, lying in Westgate Bay, from chasing. I sent an orderly dragoon to the admiral at Deal, not knowing the force of the privateer. The moment the capture was perceived, 40 or 50 of the Sea Fencibles pushed off in three boats, and about three o'clock recaptured the two brigs, the privateer having made off.
18 Jul 1799 captured the Sufa. Lieutenant Henry Wildey, commanding officer. 21 Jan 1803 prize money resulting due for payment.
26 Nov 1799 captured the French privateer Republicaine, 12 tons, from Boulogne, Citoyen Jean Baptiste Carre, Commander, 20 men, near the South Foreland.
