Journal of a Visit to Greece. (London: Henry Colburn, 1826)

I first visited Greece in 1821, at the time the Greeks in the Morea were laying siege to Tripolizza, and Prince Demetrius Ipsilanti commanded in the light of representative of his brother Alexander. At that time there existed great enthusiasm, felt not only by the enfranchised peasantry, but by their capitani or military chiefs, their clergy and the Franc Greeks, as Constantinopolitans, Smyrniots, and those who had received their education in foreign parts.
