American Privateers

‘Tis computed that there are and will be before Winter 113 Sail of Privateers at Sea, from the British American Colonies; most of them stout Vessels and abundantly well mann’d. A Naval Force, equal (some say) to that of the Crown of Great-Britain in the Time of Queen Elizabeth.

The Pennsylvania Gazette, August 30, 1744
