Pagina 61 - Almighty God having blessed his majesty's arms with victory, the admiral intends returning public thanksgiving for the same at two o'clock this day ; and he recommends every ship doing the same as soon as convenient.

It was agreed that their persons and property should be safe, and that they should be conveyed to Toulon.
