Whilst ashore, there was some unpleasantness between our purser, Mr. Cushing and Lord Westlake. If I understand it correctly, there was some discussion as to his lordship's courage in comparrison to that of his brother's.
|Capt May of the Marines and Capt Freymann acted as the seconds for the two duelists.
|Lt. Tumbusch implores the gentlemen, surely there must be some other way to settle things?
|Capt Freymann gives Lord Westlake his pistol.
|His Lordship fires!
|Cushing's leg is merely grazed by the musket ball.
|Fit to return fire, Cushing fires back.
|Cushing's musket ball strikes true, Lord Westlake is killed.
