 Glorious First of June - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He had sailed with his whole force on the 16th and had passed close to the British fleet on the 17th, unseen in a fog.
On the 19th the French admiral was informed by the Patriote (74) that Nielly had fallen in with, and had captured, the British frigate Castor (32), under Captain Thomas Troubridge, together with a convoy from Newfoundland.
Strategically the battle was a victory for the British: the French navy never again tried to fight a convoy through the British blockade, resorting to blockade-running, privateering and trade through neutral countries.

Following his accession at George IV in 1820, it was the need for a new pendant for it, in St James's Palace, which in 1822-23 led to Turner's only royal commission, to paint his same-sized 'Battle of Cape Trafalgar' (see BHC0565).
De Loutherbourg took considerable care with the detail (as indeed did Turner, a youthful admirer of his, in its pendant).
Born in Strasbourg, son of a miniaturist, de Loutherbourg was already a well-established member of the French Academy and painter to Louis XIV when the actor David Garrick, persuaded him to settle in London as scenic director at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, 1773-83, at the huge salary of £500 a year.

Her chief distinction lies in her role as Rear Admiral Thomas Graves's flagship during the Battle of the Chesapeake, where the Royal Navy's defeat resulted in the end of the American Revolution.
De Grasse's fleet of twenty-seven ships arrived four days later and anchored off Cape Henry, where Graves and Hood found them on the morning of September 5.
Rather than bear down on the French fleet while it was in disarray, Graves ordered his ships in line ahead formation, as called for in the Fighting Instructions, with London in the middle of the line, Hood's Barfleur (90 guns) fourth in line, and Rear Admiral Francis S. Drake's Princessa (70) sixteenth in line.

 ART / 4 / 2DAY
De Loutherbourg painted several views of Conway Castle, including one that relates compositionally to this and which was reproduced as an aquatint in his 'Romantic and Picturesque Scenery of England and Wales' (1805).
While de Loutherbourg's picture is no more literally accurate than Turner's it does not appear to have aroused the criticism leveled at the latter and which, in 1829, led to the King ordering the removal of both works from St. James's.
The reason is fairly clear: whatever the documentary or other failings of de Loutherbourg's painting, it is, at least in comparison to the Turner, an unequivocally heroic image cast in a conventionally patriotic mould.

 TRS Triton rescues USS Orion crew - Sea Lords
I cannot speak for A. de F. Villaret- Joyeuse, but I perceieved the threat from 4 unknown vessels approaching at speed in the fog to be greater than that from a couple of Araby pirates.
Of course, had we been aware of the A de F's inability to tender such assistance (regardless of his excuses), you can rest assured we would have remained with the convoy, even though we would have all been made the more vulnerable to the oncoming interlopers.
I would argue that Amiral de Flotille Louis Thomas Villaret de Joyeuse was simply adding emphasis to his displeasure and frustration at being prevented the opportunity to render timely assistance to our honored friends, the United States Navy.

A French fleet of 26 warships, under Admiral Louis Villaret de Joyeuse, was escorting a convoy of grain ships across the Atlantic when he was intercepted by a similar British fleet under Admiral, Lord Richard Howe.
In this decisive action, six French ships were captured and one was sunk, giving the British a "glorious" victory, despite the fact that the supply ships were able to slip away into the harbor at Brest as the British fleet was too battered to pursue them.
It was this episode, in particular, that raised the national pride and confidence in the Navy and eventually lead Congress to allocate further shipbuilding for the war and future events.
