Mars, February 11[, 1805]

We left Torbay this afternoon, and were joined this day by Sir Robert Calder and his squadron. - I suppose they must have gone to look into l'Orient, for the ships which got away from Rochfort.  Where they have got to, is as yet not known; but we shall hear of them somewhere by and by; perhaps in the East or West Indies, where they may do much mischief.
