Mushirul Hasan

Oxford University Press

The author narrates Captain Richard's polite conduct towards him and presents an account of his voyage to Malta. He describes the island and the characters of the Governor, Admiral, Commander-in-chief, and Commissary-general. The author lands, and is hospitably entertained by all the public officers. He discovers a great affinity between the Maltese and Arabic languages, describes the invasion of Malta by the Turks, and comments on the climate of that island. The author re-embarks, on board the L'Heureuse, for Smyrna. The ship journeys into the port of Miletus, passes by Athens, and arrives at Smyrna. The author is well received by the Consul and visits Osman Aga. The ship leaves Smyrna and arrives at the Hellespont. The author describes the Sea of Marmora and narrates his arrival at the Dardanelles.
