July 28. 1779
Breeze with drizzle. The Three Friends brig that we brought in as a prize during our cruise sank about 11AM in the forenoon at her anchor in the roadstead. We have been busy getting off as much of her cargo as possible this day. The prizemaster tells us that ship was dry and the pumps worked at 9AM.

The court martial continued on the Poor Richard but Lt. Robison was on shore sick and therefore the court began trying those charged with mutiny. Cutting Lunt, now the Poor Richard Master went to Nantes with some others to recruit American prisoners that were just released from Forton prison and carried to France by a cartel just as we were.
