The frigates were the Guerriere, the Shannon, the Belvidera, and the Aeolus. The chase continued sixty hours. The Constitution, by maneuvering and outsailing the enemy, escaped a conflict with a force so greatly superior, and arrived at Boston on the 26th of the month. [Pp. 28-29; full entry reads: "Commodore Hull, in the Constitution, chased by a British ship of the line, the Africa, of 64 guns, four frigates, a brig and a schooner, July 7th, 1812."]
