Oxford University Press

The author embarks for Genoa and describes the Mediterranean Sea. He arrives at Genoa and is hospitably entertained by the American Consul. He describes the city and expresses his admiration of Italian music. The author embarks for Leghorn, with an intention of visiting Rome, and narrates how he was almost assassinated. He cultivates an acquaintance with some Armenians and narrates the arrival of the L'Heureuse ship of war at Leghorn with a tender. The British Consul promises the author a passage in the latter but the Master refuses to take him. He applies to the Captain of the L'Heureuse, who consents to receive him on board. The author then leaves Leghorn.
