* The British and American accounts of this affair do not differ materially ; but in many of the more important actions, that follow,
there are greater discrepancies; the British accounts, in nearly every instance, overrating the American force engaged, and underrating
their own; carrying out the same principle in regard to the number of killed and wounded, the duration of the action, &c- To cndeavoi
to reconcile these conflicting statements, or even to quote all the authorities I have examined upon each subject introduced, would be
contrary to the original design in publishing these Tables.

| As this was the first Frigate action during this War, and for this reason, perhaps, the subject of more varied comment and criticism
than those that followed, I take this occasion to refer to a detailed history of the affair, which has lately been published in the May and
June numbers of " Putnam s Monthly," for 13. r >3, under the head oC " Old Ironsides," which, I understand, will also reappear in the
revised edition of Cooper s Naval History, now publishing.
