The others got in safely, and anchored above Goat Island, in sight of the French fort. They consisted of three fourth-rates,the "Dragon," the "Chester," and the "Falmouth;" two fifth-rates,the "Lowestoffe" and the "Feversham;" the province galley, one bomb-ketch, twenty-four small transports, two or three hospital ships, a tender, and several sloops carrying timber to make beds for cannon and mortars. The landing force consisted of four hundred British marines, and about fifteen hundred provincials, divided into four battalions. Its unnecessary numbers were due to the belief of Nicholson that the fort had been reinforced and strengthened.
