Which English ship was in Kamchatka in 1793?

In 1795, Alaskan colonial supremo A.A. Baranov sent a letter to his bosses in Irkutsk. The text in Tikhmenev's History, Volume II, Documents, says:

An English ship wintered in Kamchatka in 1793.... The English were well-armed....

If Baranov was correct, what ship was this, and where did it spend the winter?
