In 1804 Linois' French squadron waited at the east entrance of the Straits of Malacca for the British East Indiamen laden with cargo from Canton worth 8 million pounds. Dance misled Linois into believing that the merchantmen had an escort of formidable naval ships and Linois made his escape after a brief engagement. Napoleon said, 'He has made the French flag the laughing-stock of the Universe'.
