The following is from Captain Stewrats letter, published in the London Gazette, Page 1437, Issue 16194, 22-25 Oct 1808.

"... I had the Pleasure to take Possession of the Badere Zaffer, a very fine Frigate of the largest Dimensions, carrying Fifty-two long Brass Guns, Twenty-four Pounders, on the Main-Deck, except Two, which are Forty-two Pounders, and Twelve-Pounders on the Quarter-Deck and Forecastle. She had a Complement of Five Hundred Men, and
was commanded by Captain Scanderli Kichuc Alii..."
