I came across the "Prize Project" in the recent United Empire Loyalist newsletter. They are finally cataloging and digitizing the contents of mailbags from ships captured by the British during the American and French Revolutions and during the Napoleonic conflicts. I thought this might be of general interest. Read details at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/about/news/prize-papers-project-launches-at-oldenburg-castle/
