Americans Hold Line at Durfee Again

From Israel Angell's Diary

Lossberg is ordered to attack the American line on Durfee’s Hill again. During the attack British ships Sphynx, Spitfire, and Vigilant shelled the American positions, but Americans held. The frontal attack failed and the Hessians were forced to retreat.
