    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Fox was posted captain on 15 February 1780 and became flag-captain aboard the Prince George 90 to Rear-Admiral Hon Robert Digby, who was second-in-command in the Channel during the campaign of June-December. He left this vessel at the end of the year, having made a most favourable impression upon the future King William IV, who was serving as a midshipman upon her.

    From the beginning of 1782 Fox commanded the Vestal 28, sailing for North America in April and joining Captain Hon. George Keith Elphinstone’s squadron in the Delaware. On 15 September this force captured the French frigate Aigle 40 after she had driven ashore in the Delaware, although her consort, the Gloire 32, escaped up river. The Vestal also took the letter of marquee Sophie on 13 September, and the privateers Randolph on 25 October and Surprise on 27 October. In company with the Astrea 32, Captain Matthew Squire, and Duc de Chartres 18, Captain John Child Purvis, she later took the privateer Julius Caesar on 15 March 1783.
    Fox was not re-employed after the peace of 1783, but he became a superannuated admiral in 1799.

    Portsmouth.

    The Anson was built in 1781 to fight in the French Revolutionary wars although her first action was at the Battle of the Saintes in The American Revolutionary Wars on the 9th April 1782. After surviving that action, she then entered the Napoleonic war proper, and fought a number of battles over the years, and in between times, she chased down Privateers.
    Her luck finally ran out in the winter of 1807 when she was wrecked just outside Loo in Cornwall.
    A good number of the crew were killed although the actual number lost varies from 60 to 190. The discrepancy is so great because many of the sailors were press ganged into the service, and it is fairly certain that many got ashore only to promptly run off into the night to a new life, never to be seen again.

    Admiral of the Fleet George Anson, 1st Baron Anson, PC FRS (23 April 1697 – 6 June 1762), was a Royal Navy officer. Anson served as a junior officer during the War of the Spanish Succession and then saw active service against Spain at the Battle of Cape Passaro during the War of the Quadruple Alliance. He then undertook a circumnavigation of the globe during the War of Jenkins' Ear. Anson commanded the fleet that defeated the French Admiral de la Jonquière at the First Battle of Cape Finisterre during the War of the Austrian Succession.
    Anson went on to be First Lord of the Admiralty during the Seven Years' War. Among his reforms were the removal of corrupt defence contractors, improved medical care, submitting a revision of the Articles of War to Parliament to tighten discipline throughout the Navy, uniforms for commissioned officers, the transfer of the Marines from Army to Navy authority, and a system for rating ships according to their number of guns.
    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Admiral of the Fleet Sir Lucius Curtis, 2nd Baronet, KCB, DL (3 June 1786 – 14 January 1869) was a senior officer of the Royal Navy during the nineteenth century. The son of Sir Roger Curtis, 1st Baronet, Lord Howe's flag captain at the Glorious First of June, Lucius served during the Napoleonic Wars and was heavily involved in the Mauritius campaign of 1810. During this campaign, Curtis commanded the frigate HMS Magicienne with the blockade squadron under Josias Rowley and was still in command when the ship was destroyed at the Battle of Grand Port. Magicienne grounded on a coral reef early in the engagement and despite the best efforts of Curtis and his crew, the ship had to be abandoned, Curtis setting her on fire to prevent her subsequent capture.
    After Curtis was freed from captivity in December 1810, he was cleared of any wrongdoing in the loss of his ship and returned to his naval career. He later rose to become an Admiral of the Fleet.

    Rover was a privateer brig out of Liverpool, Nova Scotia known for several bold battles in the Napoleonic Wars.
    She was built in Brooklyn, Nova Scotia (then known as Herring Cove) over the winter of 1799-1800. Rover was owned by a group of merchants from Liverpool, Nova Scotia led by Simeon Perkins and Snow Parker. Rover's captain was Alexander Godfrey, and she sailed under a letter of marque. Her crew were mainly fishermen
