The morning after their unpleasant night encounter with American fireships (subject of the print "Fireships on the Hudson"), H.M. ships Rose (foreground) and Phoenix, together with the small tenders Tryal and Shuldham, retired at some speed down the Hudson, urged on by a strong north-easterly breeze. All along the way they came under fire from numerous Revolutionary batteries located on Manhattan Island and on the western shore, and suffered casualties and damage, while Phoenix had her longboat, towing astern laden with an anchor cable, sunk by one lucky shot.

The ships are pictured somewhere about the vicinity of what is now West 14th Street; ahead is the relative safety of the open harbor, the main British fleet anchorage being off Staten Island.
