Il profita de son séjour dans cette contrée alors peu connue, pour s'instruire des usages des Hindous, et ayant eu le bonheur de se lier avec quelques brahmines, il en obtint des renseignements précieux sur leur croyance et leur culte. (...). Le frontispice représente une Fête Hindoue. l'Ouvrage traite fort au long des Superstitions de l'Inde et des Maléfices qui s'y exercent. Il est très complet et très recherché".

He was an attaché to the Navy, the foreign Office and interpretor to the King. His in-depth knowledge of Oriental culture enabled him to play an important role in the negociations with the powers of Barbary for 20 years. On Petis de la Croix see Howgego P70.
