Hibernia, at sea, lat. 37. 47. long.
14. 17. Dec. 6, 1807..
Sir,

I have the satisfaction to acquaint you, for the information of my lords commissioners of the Admiralty, that I succeeded in collecting the whole of the Portuguese fleet, except a brig, after the gale, and that the weather was such as to allow the necessary repairs and such dis. tribution of supernumeraries and resources to be made, as to enable vice-admiral Don Manuel d'Acunha, sotto-mayor, to report to me yesterday all the ships capable of performing the voyage to Rio Janeiro, except one line-of-battle ship, which he requested might be conducted to an English port. I meant to escort her part of the way, but she did not quit the fleet with me last night as settled. I hope, however, she may arrive safe, as she is not in a bad state, being substituted for the Martino de Freitas, which was at first destined to go to England, in consequence of a fresh arrange ment made yesterday, on the latter being found in the best state for the

voyage of the two. I have detached captain Moore in the Marlborough, with the London, Monarch, and Bedford, to attend the Portuguese fleet to the Brazils. I have thought it my duty, in addition to the usual order to take the above ships under his orders, to give captain Moore one to hoist a broad pendant after passing Madeira, in order to give him greater weight and consequence in the performance of the important and unusually delicate duties I have confided to him. I feel the most perfect reliance in that officer's judgment, ability, and zeal.

The Portuguese ships did not, after their reparation, want more provisions or slops from us than the list enclosed, which I supplied from this ship and the Conqueror.

This dispatch will be delivered by captain Yeo, of his majesty's sloop Confiance, who has shewn great address and zeal in opening the communications by flag of truce, which it was the interest of those in power who were against the measure of emigration, to obstruct. — Lord Strangford speaks of his conduct in terms of warm approbation; on this ground I. beg leave to recommend him to their lordships, to whom his general merits as an officer are already well known.

Having been

in Lisbon without restraint during the intercourse, he is qualified to answer any questions their lordships may wish to put to him.

I have the honour to be, &c.
W. SIDNEY SMITH.
