Capt. Farrow and his schooner Tomlinson was captured by Loyalist Capt. Goodrich and ordered to go to New York. Two privateers from Charlestown came upon Capt. Farrow and recaptured him, now releasing him from his word of honor to go to New York, so they all went back to Charlestown.

On the return, the two privateers (Capt. Taylor and Capt. Samuel Spencer) captured the brig Liberty, commanded by Capt. Ramsey, bound to New York from St. Augustine with hides and molasses, and brought her back to Charlestown.
