Comprising Authentic Memoirs and Anecdotes of the Reigning Bashaw, his Family, and other Persons of Distinction; also, an Account of the Domestic Manners of the Moors, Arabs, and Turks. Second Edition.
Second edition. No matter whether the author of this work – mentioned in the Preface rather than on the title, and a mystery unsolved to this day – was the sister or (as stated from this edition onwards) the sister-in-law of Richard Tully, her Narrative of a Ten Years’ Residence at Tripoli in Africa must be counted among the most lively, eventful and astute reports by a woman living abroad. Richard Tully was the British consul in Tripoli, and Miss Tully’s letters, gathered in this volume, cover the period from July 1783 to August 1793.
