|Ward Room aboard USS Constitution|
Dinner this evening in the Ward Room, followed by the traditional Monday toast, "To our Ships at sea!".
It gave me pause, and I considered some of the ships of His Majesty's Navy that we have encountered thus far.
HMS Ramillies under command of Sir Thomas Hardy
HMS Poictiers under Capt. Beresford, in whose company we have made several significant captures.
HMS Dotterel, HMS Martin, HMS Nymphe whom we encountered at Bermuda recently.
HMS Maidstone, Æolus, Childers and Colibrie with whom we have shared captures.
