Chapter Summary

As diplomatic efforts were failing in the Russo-Turkish conflict over custody of churches in the Holy Land and the protection of the Porte's Eastern Orthodox subjects, English and French steamers were sent to the Black Sea in June 1853 and stood anchored at Besika Bay awaiting the outcome of negotations. In August 1853, Lord Aberdeen decided to dispatch the British Maltese fleet towards Constantinople, ostensibly to protect the westerners in the Ottoman capital in case of armed conflict. Rosetti, Alexandru Golescu-Albu, his brother Ştefan, and Dumitru Brătianu left France on 22 November 1853, travelling via Lyon, to Marseilles, Malta, Gallipoli, with the final destination Belgrade. Rosetti was keen to publicise her role in the events of 1848 and pursued the plan of having a translation of Michelet's Principautés Danubiennes.
