leeward of us; to be under weigh at 45' past 8 A. M. He hailed and wished our Captain good morning, and desired we would sell him some bread, as he was going away, and had none ou board; told him we could not spare any, as we were very short ourselves; he, however, dropt his anchor on our larboard beam, about 30 yards from us, and sent his boat on board with his first Officer, armed; they then took the afterhatches off, and took from us. viz. 2 puncheons of rum, 8 barrels of powder, 1 puncheon of bread, 12 kegs of lobsters, 12 kegs of tongues and sounds, 12 keys of pickles, 12 bottles of porter, and 4 boxes of sperm candles; he hoisted out our boat to carry the things on board; they then prevailed upon two of our men to leave, and enter on board their Vessel, one by the name of Charles Green, a Prussian,—the other Gardener Turner, an American. The Vessel is a large, fast-sailing Schooner, about 200 tons; with a large Gun a-midships, and full of Men; she has also many Slaves.

Monday, 16th December, 1816.—Commencing with moderate pleasant weather. At 3 P. M. the Schooner that robbed us got under weigh, and ran down to the anchorage she had left in the morning. At about 30' past 4, P. M., got under weigh for the leeward; as we past the English Brig Industry, Captain M'Connell, her boat came on board of us to buy a little bread, as the Spanish Schooner abovementioned had plundered them of all her Cargo and all their provisions, not even leaving them a single biscuit: they had also partly stript the rigging and sails from the Vessel, taking his Compasses and 9 of his Crew on board (Blacks) as Slaves. Middle part squally; at 3 A. M., a breeze off the land; obliged to run under easy sail, on account of being short-handed : ends with light airs and pleasant weather.
