He so distinguished himself in that action as to draw from Capt. Jones the following certificate: "I do hereby certify that Nathaniel Fanning of Stonington, State of Connecticut, has sailed with me in the station of midshipman eighteen months, while I commanded the Good Man Richard, until she was lost in the action with the Serapis, and in the "Alliance" and Ariel frigates. His bravery on board the first mentioned in the action with the Serapis, a King's ship of fifty guns, off Flamborough Head, while he had command of the maintop, will, I hope, recommend him to the notice of Congress in the line of promotion with his other merits.
