The Royal frigate HMS Galatea was cruising off the coast of Charlestown when she spotted two sails on the horizon. She gave chase and fired three shots at one of the ships, which slowed and was therefore captured. It was the privateer Francois from St. Eustatius to North Carolina with a load of salt.
