The Battle of Flamborough Head, an eye witness account of the battle of Flamborough Head by John Paul Jones's Midshipman Nathaniel Fanning of Conneticut (part c)

On 10th of September, Commodore Jones had a dispute with one of his lieutenants, and ordered him below under confinement to his cabin, and as he was descending the ladder, kicked him on the breach several times, in half an hour afterwards he sent his servant to invite the lieutenant to come and dine with him.  Thus it was with Jones, passionate to the highest degree one minute, and the next, ready to make a reconciliation.
