I've found this at "todo a babor"

"It was a merchant frigate (Koffardifregat) owned by Asian Danish company, requisitioned by the navy in 1808 and armed with 24 guns of 12 pounds and 12 to 8 pounds. Commanded by Captain A. Garner, she was anchored within Trekroner (island and drums). It was decommissioned in 1809 and returned to their owners in 1810. After a long interval of time, this ship had a new period warrior. This happened when Borja Migoni began his efforts with the signature B. A. Goldschmidt and Company and finally managed to get a loan for Mexico, contract was signed in London on February 7, 1824 and approved by the Mexican Congress on May 14, 1824."
