The letter

To whoever reads this,

I, William Dougard Duke of Somerset Is in urgent need of help off the coast of Normandy, France I am in battle with coast fortifications. On board my ship The Royal James, We are taking a massive amount of damage from Cannons and at this moment  I have seen deaths of Brave Seamen die for the duties of the empire. I shall tell you How I got into this battle, It was foggy and then I saw it, Land I thought it was england So I steered towards it and the battle begun.

Captain Dougard, 1754
