Tunis to solyman, four hours; Tunis to Biserta, fourteen hours.
For this purpose solyman sent a fleet of three hundred vessels with eight thousand Janissaries and a hundred siege guns.
In the mean time, solyman arrived at Mohatsh with the main body of his army.
solyman, having devastated the country around him, and being all unprepared for the storms of winter, was compelled to retire.

Fear did much on this occasion, yet Zofar did more towards inducing solyman to go away.
