In 1789, General Charles O'Hara (1740-1802) of the British Garrison at Gibraltar received a letter from Sidi Mahomet (Mahomet XVI), the Sultan of Morocco. He asked for an English doctor to treat his son who was suffering from a cataract condition. In return, the Sultan offered to release ten shipwrecked British sailors from slavery. Lempriere volunteered to go, "impelled by that impetuous curiosity which is natural to youth". Landing at Tangier, he rode under escort, 660 miles down the coast to Mogador and onto Tarudant. Successfully treating Muley Absolom; the old Sultan suspected the foreigner of poisoning his son. The prince was sent to Mecca and the doctor was despatched over the Atlas Mountains to Marrakesh. He then treated a woman belonging to the Sultan's harem who had been poisoned by a rival due to her beauty. Lempriere recounts his experiences under the "protection" of the Sultan. Descriptions of the Moorish harem popularised the work among the readers of the day

by George Henry Glasse( )

The great majority of these letters are addressed to George Henry Glasse, with most of the remainder addressed to his father Samuel Glasse. The earlier letters, mostly from 1778 to 1788 in volumes 1 and 8, are largely concerned with Oxford matters, Glasse's literary interests, and his establishment at Hanwell. The bulk of the letters from 1802 onward reflect Glasse's increased preoccupation with social status as a domestic chaplain to the nobility, and concern social invitations, financial negotiations, and patronage positions. Events in Glasse's life which attract extensive attention in these letters are: his publication of a Greek translation of William Mason's Caractacus in 1781; his failed courtships of Elizabeth de Blaquiere in 1803 and Anastasia Jessey Gascoigne in 1804; and the christening of his youngest son Frederick in 1806. Several letters mention Samuel Johnson and Hester Lynch Piozzi. Glasse corresponded regularly with members of the British and French royal families, especially George Augustus Frederick, Prince of Wales (later King George IV); Adolphus Frederick, Duke of Cambridge; Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent; Louis Philippe, duc d'Orléans (later King of the French); and Louis Joseph de Bourbon, prince de Condé. Other notable correspondents include: Charles Thomas Barker (an Oxford classmate of Glasse's); William Cobbett; Glasse's father Dr. Samuel Glasse; George Horne; Sir John McMahon; Irish poet Thomas Moore; Samuel Parr; and Julie de St. Laurent

Thanking him for his letter and "for the manner in which you have promised your good offices in favor of Doctor Robert Gordon should any opportunity occur wherein you may have the power of serving him, at the same time, it is a matter of much regret to me to perceive that you entertain the opinion that your Recommendation is not likely to be attended to in the nomination of the Medical Officers as proposed by the 5th Report of the Commissioners of Military Enquiry; as however, in looking over that Report, I perceive several medical Officers of no Superior Rank to Doctor Gordon who, although they have been refused their full Pay, have nevertheless in consequence of 30 years Services, been allowed a Pension of £100 pr annum along with their half Pay, I cannot refrain from soliciting from you, in whose Department the power to oblige me exists, a similar Reward for the long and meritorious Services of Dr. Robert Gordon, the more especially, as that Gentleman was so cruelly deprived of all Pay whatsoever, for nearly three years, a circumstance which not only plunged him, but an unoffending family into the severest distress, under which they at this moment most unmerittedly suffer;" suggesting, in a postscript, that he see Dr. Gordon and therefore sending this letter "by his hands."
