The Times, November 23rd, 1799:

" ...... The gallant Action, fought by Capt. Macnamara, of the Cerberus frigate, ranks with the most memorable and successful exploits of our navy. A great inequality of force was perhaps never known than a ship of 32 guns and 250 men, against 5 frigates and 2 brigs manned with upwards of 1,500 men, and mounting 200 guns. ...."
