ViY the Frefident, which fails for Ameri
ca in a few days, I embrace thfc favorable
opportunity of writing you a few lines. \ ou
will no doubt be anxious and feel a little
lurprifed at roy long iilence, and will per
haps, place it to neglect or want of atfed
ion *, but when ! a {lure you I have not been
in a CJniftian country tor nearly ei^ht
months before, you will form an opinion
that will be mere correspondent to the fee
lings of my heart. 1 »me anti my duty
will not permit me t«> write you as lengthy
as I could with ; 1 will however, give you a
fhort account of onr journey acrofs the
Lybian Defert, where *we ihifered a!
* molt every thing poflible, but in the end
(gained a glorious victory, and in a gieat
meal 11 re coi tributed to the bringing the
I Bafhaw of Tripolv to terms of peace. A
I bcut the middle of November, failed
from Malta, bound to Egypt (having or*
board, as paflclrge*-, William Eaton, El'q)
in featch of Hama Baibaw, the rightiul
fovereign of Tripoli, to endeavour to effe&
a co operation with him againft his broth
er, the reigning Baihaw of Tripoly. We
arrived at the port of Alexandria on the
24 of NoVetnb’efr, and Mr. Eaton went 10
Grand Cairo in fearth of the Ex-B >fhaw.
After along ferits of difficult:.*, dangers
and Vexations, Mr. Eaton arrived near
Alexandria with the Baihaw, and ribotit
forty perforisin his fuite, aboiit tns 6th Feb
ruary. Mr. E. returned on board, and the
Bafhaw iornied his camp about f f miles
In m Alexandria, where he was occ-fion
ally reinforced by the Bedouin or defert A
rabs- At the puffing fobc:tation of Mr.
Eaton, and at the reqweft of Captain Hull,
I conicnted to accompany the former acrots
the deiert, with the provifo of joining the
brig at Bomba. On the 19th oi Feb. Mr.
h. cur Lteut. of Marines, myfelf, and feven
marines, left the brig and joined the armv,
and the brig failed tor .Syracuse. On the
6th of March we commenced our mnrch
with about 300 well mounted Arab.?, -o
ehriftians recruited at Alexandria, and i :o
camels laden with our provisions and bag
gage. Our firil days fiiofeb was near
miles. On encamping, we found the ..ell,
to ad appearances, dry, and there was no
water within fix boor? march. Here com
menced *be iirft of our fufferings—„tt€T
marching near 40 miles in a burning fun,
buoyed up vvi.ii the idea of finding water at
I rht end of our march, we found on encam
ping not the feafl fi^n of water, nor was a
v'uen thing »o be feen. Ail hands was em
ployed in clearing out the well, but were (0
thirilv ard fatigued they could hardly nu \c;
For myfclf, rot having taken the precaution
to procure a final 1 fkin of water to carrv cn
my horfe, had it n t been fer a few cr mge *
\ had, I fhould hardly have been able to
I move next morning I bid my ft If den n
dn my bed to deep, but f could "not, being
fer the firtt time im my life almolt dead
with third.— Had I pf ii'cCed thoufands, [
would have given them for a gill of w ater.
About day-light a little water was f <ui d,
worle, if pofliblt, than bilge water ; but to
me it was more delicious than the moil
precious cordial. We moved on the 8th,
and continued our march until the 22d, hal
ting Wherever water u as to be procured, and
’ frequently funding very much for the want
j of it ; our only provifions a handful of rice
and two bifcuftS a day, and every day per
plexed ami harm lied by the Arabs for money*
who finding us in their power, endeavoured
1 to extort every thing from us.
1 *ie 2id, about noon, we ervcatnped on a
fpacious barren plain, where theic were a
txCt 5000 Bedottin Arabs cncampvd, all
, in our inlerelt, about io.oco camels and
i 5C.060 lhcep ted. ! ere we remained five
days ro refreth cur troops.—The 27th we
commenced our march with a fmall rein
forcement, con flitting of 77 Arab families,
with about 150 fighting men. We tmght
have taken the whole of them, had we had
1 ft iufSciency of proviflons, which were now'
1 reduced to rice only. Wafer was growing
mtre and more fcarce every day, and the
Arabs b'coming nYore tronbltfome. They
feemed determined not to proceed to Bom
ha until new: ome of the arrival of our
| vtfiels, never once fupp fing they would
arrive,but remained under an idea that we
vrifhsd to get p: fleflicn of fame strong hold
in their country, and reduce them to Chrifri
aniry.—-They frid it was impoflible for a
chriftian and a mmlufman to have the fame
mrereft. Our provifions were drawing to
an end, and oui Chriflian fofdiers on the
point cf mutinying. Our profpech were
j now gloomy indeed, when, on the toth of
April, at the time when we had diicovered
a mutiny, a courier arrived with news of
our vefiels being off Bomba Iu an inftar.t
the face of thing-s changed from ptHfive
gloom to enthufiaftit gladnefs *, the foldiers
who had refuted to mount guard returned
to iheir duty. The next mornirig we mar
ched on in high lpirits being only three
good days march from Bomba, although we
had only provifions for the next dav. The
> 2th, our provifions being expended we
killed a camel for fubfilience, which lafted
the 13th. On the 16th we arrived at Bom
ba, having been 3 days without a mouthful
of provifion, except a"little forrel we found
now and then, and a fmall root we dug out
ot the land. To add to our diftrefs, no
veffel was to be fecn, and no water to be
found i we remained that night without a
drop. 1 he Arabs again began to murmur.
Early on the morning of the 17th I was
roufed by the joyful found of a fail ! a fail f
I went out of my tenr, and enjoyed the plea
fing fight ot the Argus coming down the
Coafl under full fail. All was now rejoicing
and mutual congratulation. About 8 the
Argus difcOvered Us, and at to I enjoyed
the pieifure of embracing my mefs mates,
and fitting down to a comfortable meal,
j which I had not enjoyed for near 40 davs.
When I think on our Situation in the
Deiert, wnere no ether chriftian ever
fat his foot, and Confide! what thiercs :hc
Arabs ate who would fhcot a man for
the buttons on his coat, and their religious
prejudices, which would have been fuffi
cient to warrant our deaths, as Lhriftiant
and enemies to their religion, I frequem’t
wonder how it was pofTfbic foi us to fuc
cetd in reaching Bomba.—Certainly it v 9
one of the moft extraordinary expeditions
ever fet on on foot. We were verv fre
quently ia hours without water, and once
47 hours without a drop. Our horfes were
fometimes 3 days without, and far the laft
20 davs had r.othi"? o cat except wh-.t
