The Capture Of The Frolic By The Wasp

From The military heroes of the war of 1812: with a narrative of the war :
The Capture Of The HMS Frolic By The USS Wasp, October 18, 1812

...the welcome news of another victory was received; a victory over an enemy most decidedly superior in force, and under circumstances the most favourable to him. This was the capture of the brig Frolic of twenty two guns by the sloop of war Wasp. Captain [Jacob] Jones had returned from France two weeks after the declaration of war and on the 13th of October again put to sea.
