1 Jan 1799, Capt. G. E. Hammond. North Sea.
30 Jun 1799, at Yarmouth Roads, on the morning of the 26th inst. being off the Dudgeon, a brig was observed boarding two merchant vessels to leeward. After a chace of three days and two nights I had the satisfaction to capture the French privateer Anacreon, commanded by Citizen Blanckeman, belonging to Dunkirk, of 16 guns, and 125 men, 74 of whom were away in prizes she had made this cruise. She is almost a new vessel, sails remarkably fast, is copper-bottomed, and seems fit for his Majesty's service. I feel myself very happy in this capture as she has been a great annoyance to the trade on the Northern coast. I have the honour to be, &c. G. E. Hamond.
