    On the 17 February 1800 two men, Fraser and Shaw, were tried before the King's Bench for forging Lieut. ALT's signature to a 'Liberty Ticket'. This apparently gave a week's leave to a man from ANT named Maxwell and protected him from impressment. He was in fact a seaman from an Indiaman. The defendants were found guilty.
  • ANT and ADVICE came into Portsmouth from a cruise on 12 April and on 10 August she sent into Portsmouth the CONCORDE from St. Martin laden with salt.
