March 9th
Sailed From C. Henry in col with the P. A. Kemp, Capt. Jacobs, of Baltimore. At 4 P.M. made a sail from our mast head; made a signal to the K and both gave chase. At 5 perceived the chase to be a frigate standing for us; we then tacked. At 6 we had the frigate in our wake; at 8 lost sight of the frigate and K, being both 3 or 4 miles to leeward and astern of us.
