September 22. 1779
We saw a ship early this morning to which we gave chase. After a while we perceived her to be the Pallas and we each showed our private signals. We chased a brig into Burlington harbor while Pallas chased another but we were forced to give over the chase as we were entering the shoals. At 6PM we spoke Pallas and she informed us that she separated from the Poor Richard three days prior.
