Letter from Matthew Flinders to Ann Flinders (22 of 41) (FLI25) Page 4

July 22. I am now obliged to close. If the news of the Warren Hastings being taken is un-
-known, tell Thomas F: that she was taken near this island, by La Piémontaise, French
frigate, the beginning of this month, after an action of 4h 25' in which she lost her
masts and tiller, and had 8 men killed and 15 wounded. Mr Edwick the purser
was amongst the former, and captain Larkins amongst the latter, but his wound is not
said to be dangerous: the cargo of this ship cost more than 600,000 dollars in China.
Desire Thomas to make this ^ intelligence known, should it not be so on the receipt of this.
      Adieu my best – my dearest love. Preserve thy health – trust in Provi-
-dence and in my exertions. I am in good health. Remember me most affecti-
-onately to thy family and all mine. As usual I am obliged to conclude in a
hurry.           Forever thine
                    Mattw Flinders
