A scene involving the ex-British frigate ‘Hermione’ which, two years earlier, was the scene of a terrible mutiny. This took place on the night of 22 September 1799 off Puerto Rico, when part of the crew rose and murdered their captain, Hugh Pigot. They then murdered two lieutenants, the purser, surgeon, captain’s clerk, a midshipman, a lieutenant of marines and the boatswain. After this they surrendered the ship to the Spaniards at La Guayra, Venezuela.
