Mushirul Hasan

Oxford University Press

The author narrates his departure from Calcutta. He arrived at Kedjeree and embarked on board a vessel bound to Denmark. He describes the ship as well as the character of the captain and officers. The ship sailed to the mouth of the river. There was an embargo. An English vessel burned while at anchor — plundered by the Danish captain. The French frigate La Forte was captured by an English frigate, both of which passed up the river. The embargo was eventually taken off. The author proceeded on his voyage.
