Portsmouth 28th November - It has blown very hard all the day; the outward bound remain all well. The Hope from Exmouth to London got on shore on Bambridge Ledge this morning, knocked her rudder off and is leaky; in making for the harbour accompanied by two pilot boats, she ran on board the Sesostris, for New South Wales, and carried away her bowsprit. 
It didn't take long to make the necessary repairs and the Sesostris departed Portsmouth on Wednesday 30 November 1825.
