Post Cartels




From The Times, November 9, 1798:

".... It is rather extraordinary that there are no arrivals from France, considering that a cartel was so recently established for the exchange of Prisoners.

Capt. Stirling of the Jason, and his officers and crew, have been marched up the country from Brest. They are said to be well treated; and it is probably that the officers will be sent over in the next cartel ....."

From The Times, April 17, 1795:

".... Sir Frederick Eden, who we mentioned some time since to be going with a Cartel to Brest, to settle an exchange of prisoners, sailed for that port about three weeks since, and arrived there after a short passage. It was not intended he should proceed further than to Brest; but the Executive Government desired he should go to Paris, where Sir Frederick Eden now is. ....."

From The Times, September 14, 1795:

".... arrived....from l'Orient, the ship Aeriel, with 239 English prisoners, amongst whom are a number of masters of ships, several of whom have been 15 months in prison. The Aeriel is one of the ships sent from from Guadaloupe with French prisoners, and detained at l'Orient, the master and crew made prisoners; in consequence of an exchange of prisoners taking place, they were again put in command of their own vessel, after remaining 15 months in prison, and sent home as a cartel ....."

From The Times, August 2nd, 1794:

".... JERSEY, July 27.... a cartel from Guadaloupe, with 150 French prisoners on board, arrived last night in Bouly Bay, not knowing where they were; nor was it known till late to-day that such a vessel was in that place. Capt. Searle, with the Liberty, came to anchor in the same bay, and sent men to take possession of her, otherwise she would have immediately sailed for France.

On the 17th of last month the prisoners had taken possession of the ship; they soon after fell in with the Quebec frigate, the Captain of which took out the ringleaders, and the rest promised to quietly to their destination, but had changed their mind ....."

From The Times, January 7, 1796, in news from Brighton dated 3 days earlier:

".... Last Monday evening, 230 Englishmen, soldiers and sailors, were landed from a French cartel ship between this place and Hove, where the vessel was run ashore for that purpose, and where she is still lying, but without the least expectation of getting her to sea again. After landing, the poor fellows came to this town, where their emaciated frames and famished looks excited compassion in the inhabitants, who raised for them a very handsome subscription ....."
