§ MR. PICKERSGILL
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty which of Her Majesty's ships are now at Freetown; and are any other British, warships shortly expected there; and, if so, will he state their names?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY
The following ships are at Freetown, and in the neighbourhood:—Blake, Fox, Blonde, Sparrow, and Alecto. The Thrush is on her way to relieve the Sparrow, and Phœbe to relieve the Fox. It is not proposed to send any further ships.
