Leith, December 20, 1799.
Notice is hereby given to the Offcers and Ship's Company of HM Hired Armed Cutter Rose, Richard Stevenson, Esq., Commander, that an Account of the Sales of the Four French Fishing Vessels Balthazar, Stadt Flemsburg, Blanckaneze, and De Zee Lust, captured by the said Cutter in the Months of July and August last, will be lodged in the Registry of the High Court of Admiralty in Scotland, agreeable to Act of Parliament.

11 Jul 1800 captured the Stadt Copenhagen, Stadt Arundahl, and Charlotta Henrietta, Richard Stevenson, commander.

31 Jul 1801 captured the Stadt Elsigneur, Christianus, and Aspacia, Richard Stevenson, commander. [I appreciate that there appears to be a contradiction here, in that the vessel had been captured by this date, and was a prize herself, to the Dutch, but this is what appears in the London Gazette : one wonders if the year might not have been 1800 taking into account the earlier captures ?

21 Sep 1801 prize money resulting from the captures on the 11 and 31 Jul 1800 due for payment at Great Yarmouth.

24 Feb 1802 prize money resulting from the capture of the Dutch hulks Drotchterland and Brooderschap, and the ships Helder, Venus, Minerva, and Hector due to be paid.

17 Nov-30 Dec 1802 this cutter entitled to prize money resulting from the expedition to Holland due for payment as this cutter appears to be employed in the North Sea whilst the other cutter is employed in the Channel and on the coast of France.
