Cyprus Brig sighting: Sydney Monitor 23 June 1830

The Sydney Monitor Wednesday 23 June 1830 p.3

The Commander of the schooner Harlequin while he was recently lying at New Zealand, in a vessel, of which he was second officer, spoke the Government brig Cyprus, which was piratically taken from this port about twelve months since, by a number of felons who were then being conveyed to the penal settlement at Macquarie Harbour. The person who appeared to have command of the vessel,
was the leading pirate Walker, who is a very skilful navigator. He is designated as Captain Walker by the rest of the pirates. They call the Cyprus the " Friends of Boston." She was taking in ballast and water, and had plenty of provisions on board
