Fort Geriha
Brown spotted the Cassandra and Victory 18
A little before noon four strange sails were seen in the offing, which, before long, were made out to be the Madagascar pirates, with the Cassandra, Victory, and two prizes they had just taken. The sight of them struck Brown with terror. He directed his whole squadron to anchor off Gheriah.

Brown's squadron accidently ran into the priates 18
On both sides there was no willingness to fight. The pirates were at first seized with consternation at discovering their mistake; they had turned their prizes adrift after throwing their sails overboard, and, with only three hundred men for their joint crews, forty of them negroes, were not strong enough to engage the Bombay squadron. But England was a man who preferred fighting to running, so putting a bold face on the matter, the Cassandra ran through the fleet, firing into the Victory, the Chandos, and the Phram. The Chandos, which was towing the Phram, at once cast it loose.
