British Lieutenant Charles Hare

This is to Certify that Lieutenant Charles Hare, served under my orders in the command of H.M. Schooner Bream, when I was senior Officer commanding the Squadron in the Bay of Fundy, in Eighteen Hundred and Thirteen and Eighteen Hundred and Fourteen, stationed for protecting the frontier of New Brunswick, in the war with the United States of America. That the activity and enterprize displayed by Lieutenant Hare, in destroying the American coasting trade, and capturing their small Privateers between Boston and Saint John, was the admiration of Admiral Griffith, of Sir Philip Broke, of myself, and of every officer who knew him.
H. Le Fleming Senhouse, Commodore Bay Of Fundy
