HUNTER Cutter Perhaps a privateer.
  • Letter from on board the YARMOUTH off Ushant, June 4th. 1756
  • "I am going to relate a very bold action which was performed on the second of last Month by Captain Cockburn of the Hunter Cutter, with only 40 Men and a few Swivels. He kept loitering about by Day, and at Night went in with his Boat and only five men, when after having row'd round the Men of War and taken a particular axe with them, he cut the cable of a French Snow, boarded her, and carried her away from from among the Men of War. She was loaded with Wine, which hath been distributed to all the Fleet. We have got 15? hogsheads; and yesterday, after having taken every Thing out of her, she was sunk."
