Towards the latter part of February, a schooner arrived from Charlestown under a flag of truce. Several Loyalist merchants were on board who had formerly lived in North Carolina. These merchants expected that they would be allowed back home and they had brought a cargo of goods valued at around £80,000.

Shortly after she arrived in the port of Edenton, Capt. Cornelius Schermerhorn seized her with his Virginia privateer Grand Turk.
