Re: An extraordinary contribution ...

In regard to Algiers, the Dey was given an ultimatum concerning the freeing of Christian slaves and refused to accede to it. The Algerine forces opened fire first, an effective way of declaring hostilities. The city was bombarded and the Algerine vessels in port were burnt not captured, the city was not occupied and the ability to gain loot was zero. The Dey repaid the ransom money he had extorted from the families and states of those people he had captured, but this was public money and Pellew was fully accountable for it.
