During this month, Capt. Deshon and his North Carolina privateer General Nash captured two brigs. The brig General Nash had twenty guns and was owned by John Wright Stanley of New Bern.

Capt. Deshon brought the two captured ships into the port of Cape Fear. One brig was from St. Christopher with a cargo of rum and sugar. The other was from Scotland. Both ships amounted to a prize worth about £50,800.
