When the weather improved by June 22, 1816, Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley planned a literary pilgrimage in honour of Jean–Jacques Rousseau. As the two men left Meillerie for St Gingolph, the weather worsened once more. Their cabin–less, open boat was in imminent danger of sinking, a life–threatening moment for both. Fortunately the situation improved after the boatman had regained control of the sail, allowing Byron and Shelley to finally reach the port of St Gingolph. In the wake of his narrow escape from death, Shelley drafted a will and made Byron one of his two executors, the other one being his close friend Thomas Love Peacock.
