During his second visit in 1840, he travelled to Athens from Corfu and went on to Hydra. His account contains long sections on prominent men in public life, temples and monuments, and a description of life in Athens and the islands. He is able to compare his experiences in the country during and after the revolution and laments the damages wrought by the war. The second volume is devoted to Egypt (Alexandria, Cairo), with remarks on mosques and tombs, slave markets, the Pacha's harem, pyramids, &c. Blackmer 652.
