though born in scotland, john paul jones took a lieutenant’s commission in the continental navy at the outbreak of the american revolution in 1775, and harassed british shipping. in 1779, sailing the ramshackle le bonhomme richard, jones encountered a convoy of british merchantmen under the escort of the royal naval ship serapis. the commander of the serapis, richard pearson, recognised the richard and attacked.
the sides of the richard were so pounded by the serapis’s 44 guns that pearson sent a signal inviting jones to surrender. back came the immortal reply, "i have not yet begun to fight."
