      An earlier version of the story from a website posted on list a few
      days ago referred to both the Fantome & Tilbury as brigs. There was no mention
      of "thousands of gold coins" in that article. Frankly, given the poor state of
      US finances by Aug. 1814, I doubt there was much gold in Washington for the
      British to haul away.
