Acastas Ashore - A Duel

Mr. Midshipman Raley and his newly purchased pistol.

There was also some unpleasantness between Purser Mr. Cushing and Mr. Midshipman Raley. The above, taken by a witness shows the unfortunate business in full!

Raley's second, Lt Hamilton, makes the shot that saves the day!
