"John Windus made his trip to Morocco as part of the diplomatic mission sent by George I to Sultan Moulay Ismael. The object of the embassy was to negotiate the release of the English prisoners in Meknes. In this highly important account, John Windus recorded his descriptions, impressions and commentaries on the different places he visited (from Tetouan to Meknes)" (Khalid Chaouch, British Travellers to Morocco and their Accounts, from Mid-16th to Mid-20th Centuries: A Bibliography).
