Excerpt from Songs, Odes, and Other Poems, on National Subjects, Vol. 2: Compiled From Various Sources; Naval

One of the st overt acts of resistance that took place in this celebrated struggle, occurred in 1772, in the waters of Rhode Island. A vessel of war had been stationed on the coast to enforce the laws, and a small schooner, called the Gaspe, with a light armament, and twent -seven men, was employed as a tender to run into the s allow waters of that coast. On the 17th of June, 1772, a Providence packet that plied between New York and Rhode Island, named the Hannah, and commanded by a Captain Linzee, hove in sight of the man-of-war in her passage up the bay. The Hannah was ordered to bring to, in order to be exa mined; but her master refused to comply; and being favoured by a fresh southerly breeze, that was fast swe him out of gunshot, the Gaspe was signalled to follow. Chase continued for five-and-twenty miles, under a press of sail, when the Hannah, coming up with a bar with which her master was familiar, and drawing less water than the schooner, Ca tain Linzee led the latter on a shoal, where she stuck. T e tide falling, the Gaspé slewed, and was not in a condition to be removed for several hours.
