    At the end of October METEOR, aided by several Russian and Swedish gunboats, attacked the enemy garrison besieged in Dantzig.
    The METEOR ran right under the batteries and several houses were battered down and many others destroyed by fire.
    The squadron also occupied a point of land which enabled the allies to cut off the enemy supplies without keeping a single ship off the town during the winter.
    It was known that the garrison had eaten its last horse.
