Noah at Sea
“Travels in England, France, Spain and the Barbary States in the years 1813, 14 and 15” was published by Mordecai Noah, a United States citizen. He set off to take up an appointment as Consul at Tunis but his ship was captured by the Brest blockading fleet. His comments on his treatment are illuminating. He eventually took up his post in Tunis and was later sacked by despatch carried by a visiting American squadron. His comments on the French frigate that took him back to Marseille are wry. He eventually arrived safely in Delaware.
